Newton Waterproofing Systems complete their cavity drainage system with a fully drained closed-cell thermal insulation board
Newton Waterproofing Systems has today maintained its 2015 mission to improve and expand upon its already industry-leading product range, by introducing a unique slotted thermal insulation board within the UK waterproofing market.
Unique Design To Form A Fully Drained Supporting Spacer
Newton Fibran XPS 500-C is a 50mm deep, closed-cell thermal insulation board manufactured exclusively for Newton from rigid extruded polystyrene foam (XPS). Rated at a compression strength of 500 kPa, the product is stronger than the average insulation used in cavity drain systems, however this added strength is not all that makes the product special. The underside of the insulation boards also feature specifically designed slots that, in combination with the drainage channels of Newton System 500 Cavity Drain Waterproofing, form a fully drained supporting spacer below the floor drainage membrane.
Newton Managing Director Warren Muschialli is firmly of the opinion that products such as these are a strong sign of the direction in which Newton is confidently moving:
“Even for an item as straightforward as a thermal insulation board, at Newton we’ve pushed the boundaries in terms of the sort of product that is available in the UK, whilst still maintaining a very competitive price. Rather than acting simply as an ancillary product, thanks to its unique drainage channels, Fibran XPS 500-C is a fully-functioning element of the Newton System 500 Cavity Drain Waterproofing, actively contributing towards the process of keeping below ground and earth-retained structures both dry and habitable.” – Warren Muschialli, Managing Director
Very High Resistance To Water
Newton’s confidence in the Fibran XPS 500-C is therefore well grounded, and is even further reinforced by the additional uses and benefits that the product can provide. For example, thanks to its extremely high resistance to both water absorption and the diffusion of water vapour, the insulation boards are capable of permanent submersion in water.
Consequently, Fibran XPS 500-C can also be used externally on subterranean structures, both as a protection for Newton System 100 Liquid Waterproofing Membranes, and as a support below Newton’s flagship Type A external waterproofing membrane 403 HydroBond. Thanks to its strength, thermal insulating capabilities, and drainage channels, it is easy to see how this multi-purpose insulation board is a unique offering in the UK, providing the benefits of protection, insulation and drainage all within one product.
