Thermalcheck XPS Insulated Plasterboard

 

Details

Designed to facilitate fast installation of plasterboard liner and thermal insulation simultaneously, DCTech Thermalcheck consist of DCT Block XPS extruded polystyrene (XPS) thermal insulation board pressure bonded to gypsum plaster board. This economic, easily installed lining system allows you to insulate and line walls in one simple operation, using normal fixing methods. Suitable for stud, brick and masonry walls and ceilings, DCTech Thermalcheck has a high compressive strength and moisture resistance, providing unique thermal insulation properties.

DCTech Thermalcheck is lightweight and can be easily installed using the same fixing methods as ordinary plasterboard. The need for battens and separate insulation is eliminated, thereby speeding up construction time and providing a durable internal lining system. No special tools are required, as boards can be cut using standard handtools.

Renovating an older home becomes less of a challenge now that DCTech Thermalcheck provides a fast, trouble free method of plastering and insulating walls and ceilings, including suspended ceilings.

DCTech Thermalcheck provides unrivalled resistance to water vapour or moisture, thereby solving problems with slightly damp areas, such as bathrooms.

An extremely effective thermal insulator, DCTech Thermalcheck insulated XPS board’s high insulating properties will assist in maintaining controlled temperature conditions for the life of your home.

Features

  • High compressive strength rating

Thermalcheck Plus PIR Insulated Plasterboard

 

Details

DCTech Thermalcheck Super boards consist of a laminate of recessed edge gypsum plaster board pressure bonded to DCT PIR (polyisocyanurate) thermal insulation foam. DCTech Thermalcheck Super thermal insulated plasterboards allow for installation in one easy step, using the same fixing methods as ordinary plasterboard.

Suitable for stud, brick, masonry walls and ceilings in new or refurb projects, DCTech Thermalcheck Super provides a continuous layer of thermal insulation across studs in timber frame walls removing the ‘thermal shorts’ that occur at the framing which can reduce the insulation value of a conventional wall by up to 20%.

DCT PIR thermal insulation is a non structural, rigid board consisting of a glass fibre-reinforced polyisocyanurate foam core laminated between smooth, reflective aluminium foil facers on both sides. The glass-fibre reinforcement, along with chemical modifications, contribute to improved fire performance and dimensional stability.

Manufactured using a structural waterproof polyurethane adhesive, DCTech Thermalcheck Super thermal insulated plasterboards are easy to handle and quick to install. DCTech Thermalcheck Super is ideal for lining cold wall faces especially cellars and concrete slab construction.

The thermal resistance of DCTech Thermalcheck Super also eliminates the problem of surface condensation, saving wear and tear on surface finishes.

Applications

  • Commercial retrofit interior wall and ceiling liner for moderate impact traffic areas

Features

  • High R-value insulation in a minimum thickness board

Standards

  • DCT PIR is Green Star Compliant, CFC & HCFC Free, Zero ODP
