How does Wallrock Thermal Liner work?

Wallrock Thermal Liner works in a different way to traditional insulating products. For a start we realise that rooms are rarely heated constantly 24 / 7. So Wallrock Thermal Liner works by reducing warm up times dramatically as is begins to work immediately the heating is turned on because it is on the inside of the outside wall. Conventional products only work after the inside wall has being heated which can take hours – the very time you are likely to be in the room. Once the room has warmed up Wallrock Thermal continues to resist energy loss.

Can you use Wallrock Thermal Liner in bathrooms?

Yes you can use Wallrock Thermal Liner in bathrooms, and you must use ‘Thermal Liner Adhesive’ as it is specially formulated to hang Thermal Liner. However,  we  ‘Do Not’ recommend you use within shower areas.

Before using Wallrock Thermal Liner

I remember the old polystyrene insulation tiles that were a fire hazard, so I have worries in this regard?

Wallrock Thermal Liner is classified as “E” according to DIN EN 13501-1 in relation to fire behaviour, which corresponds to “B2” (normally inflammable) according to the standard DIN 4102-1.

Before applying Wallrock Thermal Liner, I have some really bad textured walls, do I need to take special precautions over such poor surfaces?

Not really, just make sure the walls are clean, dry and solid before applying Wallrock Thermal Liner. If the texture is very deep as with some decorative plaster effects it is advisable to sand down the high points and use extra adhesive to help level the surface. We would advise that after hanging the first drop stand back and make sure the results are satisfactory.

Wallrock Thermal Liner, why do you recommend lining over the top of it?

Two main reasons for lining over the top of  Wallrock Thermal Liner – 1) Makes it much easier to achieve a nice neat finish with minimal filling and sanding. 2) It helps your investment from damage creating a good base for paint or decorative wallpaper at the same time.

Important – If you are planning to hang lining paper on top of Wallrock Thermal Liner, we strongly recommend that you use a non-woven lining paper such as Wallrock Fibreliner Plus, Wallrock Fibreliner or Wallrock premium.

Traditional lining paper shrinks and expands when pasted and can cause lifting on the joints In contrast; non-woven lining paper is dimensionally stable and ensures a perfect finish.
