Lofts, floors, roofs, walls – your whole construction project will benefit when you specify WARMCEL as your eco friendly insulation.
Offering unbeatable U-values, WARMCEL is manufactured from 100% recycled newspaper, sequestering carbon which would otherwise be released as methane at landfill.
This 'Better than Zero Carbon' status makes it ideal for those targeting Code for Sustainable Homes, and
combined with its low material cost, ease of installation and other benefits (fire resistance, acoustic insulation, complete void fill (full fill insulation) etc) creates the best value, best choice, green loft and fibre insulation on the market.

Airtight, Insulate Right!
Excel's insulation achieves complete void fill and has the lowest air permeability in the fibre insulation market.
That means better airtightness, which leads to better CO2 ratings to meet new the Part L without the need for expensive offsetting design features. It also leads to lower long-term fuel expense for building owners.
Save on build, save on bills, and enjoy the benefits of the only insulation with a Better than Zero Carbon rating.

Zero Carbon? Aim Lower
WARMCEL insulation is BREEAM-rated 'Better than Zero Carbon', with a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of -1.5.
That means WARMCEL is the most environmentally friendly insulation on the market, and can effectively lower a
building's carbon footprint. Manufactured from 100% recycled newsprint, WARMCEL locks in carbon that would otherwise be released as methane at landfill.

The Sustainable Insulation Solution
WARMCEL is installed in over one million homes in the UK alone, and has established its credentials with national housebuilders, architects, local authorities and housing associations over the last 30 years.
WARMCEL is extremely resistant to fire through the addition of simple inorganic salts and meets the Fire Performance Requirements of BS5803 Part 4:1985.
WARMCEL provides 'U' values beyond current or envisaged Building Regulations requirements, with typical constructions achieving values of between 0.30 and 0.10 W/m2K.
WARMCEL when necessary, can be disposed of safely without creating toxic waste or biodegradability problems.
WARMCEL can be reclaimed from a building at the end of the property's life cycle and can be recycled at the Excel manufacturing plant.
WARMCEL under the BRE’s Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), WARMCEL meets the current best ‘A+’ rating value.
Saving The Planet
WARMCEL has extremely low embodied energy, as it is manufactured from 100% recycled waste newspaper, so requires far less energy to produce than any other mainstream insulation material.
WARMCEL has zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential). It does not contain any added formaldehyde and is free from CFCs, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or other toxic substances.
By reducing heating demand, WARMCEL also plays a major part in reducing household CO2 emissions.Under the BRE's Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), WARMCEL achieved Green Guide Ecopoint 'A+' ratings in every application of the insulation in various wall and roof constructions and exceeded the current best 'A+' rating value.
WARMCEL has a positive effect on the health of our planet. With a better than Zero GWP (Global Warming Potential). Based on the cradle to gate impact of the production process one tonne of WARMCEL gives a net saving of -0.92 tonnes of CO2 over 100 years. This is in addition to the many tonnes of CO2 saved in use in the building.
WARMCEL will not encourage the growth of fungi, mould or bacteria and will not sustain insects and vermin. WARMCEL is also harmless to other common building components such as copper pipes, electric cabling and metal nail-plate fasteners.
WARMCEL can be reclaimed from a building at the end of the property's lifecycle and reprocessed, further reinforcing WARMCEL's environmental credentials.
WARMCEL has an impressive thermal conductivity value, further enhanced by its ability to create a high level of air-tightness, to help seal a building against air infiltration and prevent thermal convection currents.
Methods of application ensure the insulation provides a complete seal to prevent heat loss, eliminating gaps, cracks or other cold bridges.
Airtightness tests undertaken on a scheme of local authority houses in Cardiff by the Centre for Research in the Built Environment (CRiBE), at Cardiff University, demonstrated the air-tightness of these WARMCEL insulated homes out performed good practice requirements.
WARMCEL sound absorption properties can provide an effective solution to noise pollution. This is particularly important in applications where airborne sound can cause a problem for people living or working in adjacent rooms.
WARMCEL Panels are tested to robust details for Part E of the Building Regulations for Separating Walls - Timber E-WT-2 (Timber Frame With Sheathing Boards).
WARMCEL has excellent reaction to fire properties as a result of the addition of simple organic salts and meets the Fire performance requirements set out in BS5803 Part 4: 1985.
WARMCEL is accredited by the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) for use in composite timber frame wall and ceiling systems in relation to fire resistance. As such, WARMCEL is listed in the LPCB 'Red Book', the board's official list of approved fire and security products and services.
In a separate independent fire test, conducted by Chiltern International, on a loadbearing WARMCEL wall panel, the fire resistance properties of WARMCEL saw the panel exceed 70 minutes when exposed to temperatures of up to 1000°C.
