Installing additional insulation to signal boxes and similar buildings.

Installing additional insulation to signal boxes and similar buildings.

 

At the time of applying Dura Cladding, for example to a signal box building, 75mm thickness foam insulation boards can be applied to the exterior of the building and covered by cladding thereby providing a very efficient external wall insulation system.

 

Installation system

 

Dura Cladding is generally installed onto 50mm x 50mm timber battens screwed to the wall and spaced at 600mm centres. When insulating exterior walls, the battens need to be increased in depth to 100mm. 75mm thickness. Celotex FR5000 PIR insulation or similar is then fixed to the wall between the battens, leaving a 25mm air gap at the front. Dura Cladding is then fixed to the timber batten with screws in the usual way. This insulating system benefits houses, barns, outbuildings, offices, factories and commercial buildings, providing vastly improved insulation, as well as transforming the appearance of the building.
