Ahoy! EcoTherm at the National Maritime Museum

EcoTherm Eco-Versal insulation has been installed in the new Exploration Wing at the National Maritime Museum (NMM) in London.

Concept Building Services (Southern) ltd, have undertaken the base-build works for the National Maritime Museum’s new Exploration wing. Part of the design includes constructing a link bridge and re-purposing back of house spaces to create four new galleries; Pacific Encounters, Polar Worlds, Tudor and Stuarts, and Sea Things, which will display over 1000 artefacts from the national collection and transform the visitors’ experience of the Museum.

Jan Powell from Concept Building Services (Southern) ltd commented on the project:

“EcoTherm provided technical data sheets to us showing the products performance and U-values, allowing us to select the most suitable product for the project that was within budget and delivered in time for work commencing.”

120 mm thickness of EcoTherm Eco-Versal was supplied by insulation and dry-lining specialists, Elliotts Builders Merchant, then installed and fixed to the timber frame walls by hygiene wall and ceiling experts, MBF Hygiene Systems. The insulation has a thermal conductivity of 0.022 W/m.K, making it a cost-effective solution for achieving a compliant U-value.

EcoTherm Eco-Versal’s rigid insulation board is faced with aluminium foil composite and can also be used on floors, walls, dormer cheeks and ceilings. All EcoTherm products have a fibre free core manufactured with a blowing agent which has zero Ozone Depletion Potential, (ODP) with a low Global Warming Potential (GWP).
