Innovation: Celotex has embraced innovation for decades, and it shows.

What options are available?
While having a range of options is essential when operating as an insulation provider, it can be difficult for even the most skilled individual to settle on the right choice for their space.
When it comes to Celotex, the company offers three key choices based on levels of thickness. These range from 12mm – 200mm, and includes-
TB400 (12mm – 40mm): One of the thinnest and most versatile options available from Celotex, this comes with the line’s trademark low emissivity aluminium facer as standard – allowing it to be deployed in a range of situations. In addition to being a thermal bridging board, the material is specifically created for long-term use. This makes it highly favoured as an energy efficient solution that is also easy to transport and deploy; effectively making it a swiss army knife when it comes to long and short-term care.
Who is this for?: An everyday solution for a number of builds, but especially ones where cold spots, or gaps need to be plugged. Perfect as a short-term fix or a safe, sustainable insulation solution.
GA4000 (50mm – 100mm): Celotex’s general purpose board, the GA4000 line is designed for the insulation of conventional solid walls, compared to the TB400’s core use in spot fixes or legacy builds. A robust and high-quality insulator, the line is perfect for use at all stages of dedicated build or refit projects. Designed to be simple to cut and install, the line is a valuable time-saver on professional builds and brings exceptional heat retention to a domestic site. The line is also quick to install, with little more than screw fixings needed to safely lock the boards in place. Available in five gradients, this can prove to be an elegant solution across a wide range of projects. Celotex 100mm is one of our most sold insulation boards. You can find the GA4000 datasheet here.
Who is this for?: For larger builds that combine a need for coverage and consistency, but still have specialist needs or a requirement for a ‘bespoke’ fit.
XR4000 (110mm – 200mm): This line’s highly effective insulation properties works to prevent the many issues with come with ‘doubling up’ when using conventional insulation. This allows you to enjoy a ‘fit once’ solution that fits a range of heavy-duty and home requirements. Also designed to fit over (or between) rafters, the XR4000 line is perfect for pitched roofs and can act as excellent under slab insulation. Designed to comply with current standards and to be fit-for-purpose for years ahead, the line is a heavy-duty option that gets the job done, while still enjoying the light-touch reliability of the rest of the Celotex line.
Who is this for?: Perfect for high-performance projects, the XR4000 line is also perfect for home loft insulation or a range of demanding site-specific options.
