If there is a void above your suspended ceiling such as the photograph on the right hand side of this page, 26 % of your valuable heat will be escaping straight through the ceiling every winter. That’s an expensive waste of energy and a huge carbon footprint for your business!
A suspended ceiling is unsuitable for rolled or blown insulation. Lights, cables, ventilation equipment and pipes housed in the suspended ceiling need occasional servicing.
Blown and rolled insulation can inhibit access to the ceiling space for maintenance of vital equipment. It also gets messy and deteriorates by being moved about to access the roof. Loose fibres and dust from blown and rolled insulation can contaminate equipment and be accidentally brought down to the rooms below on workmen’s clothing.
The recommended depth of insulation needed to maximize energy saving can be too heavy for the suspended ceiling to support.
The Solution? – The Green Planet Suspended Ceiling Insulation System:
Consisting of Green Planet Suspended Ceiling Insulation Pads and energyguard reflectors.
If your suspended ceiling looks like the top right photograph, congratulations – you are saving up to 30% on your heating bill and up to 40% on your annual cooling bill. (Figures confirmed by work completed by Green Planet Insulation Ltd working in conjunction with the Environment Agency)
The advantages of this system are:
Suspended Ceiling Insulation Pad (Bagged insulation):
This deals with conduction and convection. Heat is contained in the space below the ceiling void rather than rising through the suspended ceiling.
These encapsulated insulation pads; manufactured with a fire-retardant additive, come in 2 depths; 200mm and 100mm depending on your requirement and ceiling space. (fire certificates available on request).
Standard width: 600mm
Standard length: 1200mm.
Bespoke sizes can be manufactured on request though they can be made no wider than 600mm; please contact us with your requirements.
(made from Energyguard reflective insulation)
(Formerly known as SolarGuard Toppers)
Energyguard reflective insulation is made from 99% pure aluminium. This is the world’s 3rdbest reflector of radiant heat behind gold and silver.
The EnergyGuard reflector makes the Green Planet Suspended Ceiling Insulation System unique; as it deals with all 3 modes of heat transfer.
Please see free downloadable specifications sheet for details. (fire certificate available on request)
Depending on budget and requirements, the suspended ceiling insulation pad and reflective topper can be used together for maximum energy saving or separately for their individual properties.
