Unilin Insulation UK Limited


Unilin Insulation, formerly Xtratherm, is one of the largest manufacturers and suppliers of insulation. The company has a 20-plus-year history of working in partnership with construction professionals to close the gap between design and as-built performance.


The higher standards of fabric performance required in the Future Homes Stand and Passive call for greater adherence to best practice detailing. We provide resources and support to the industry to help achieve this and to ‘close the gap’ between design and build. We have a dedicated Technical Team, all qualified to the highest competency standards in U-value calculation and condensation risk analysis. We have 3D Thermal Bridging and WUFI analysis covered also; being the first company in Ireland and UK to be assessed and certified under the NSAI and BRE thermal modeling competency scheme.
