Insulation materials in Kenya plays a major role in the construction sector both for residential and commercial. Kenya construction industry has emulated other countries in providing insulation solutions especially for commercial office designs. Sound and heat insulation is the best solution for a safe working and living environment
Kenworks Ventures Company Limited offers a range of insulation materials that can be used to insulate floors, walls and ceilings. Insulation should be used to increase the airborne noise reduction between rooms and the reduction of heat from one medium to the other. Sound insulation slabs are produced to a higher density than heat insulation, when you are using insulation to soundproof a room an acoustic slab should be used rather than heat insulation.
Insulation is any material or means that retards the transmission of electricity, heat, moisture, shock or sound from one medium to another. There are several types of insulation materials we supply that will help in your project
Below is a list of insulation materials supplied by Kenworks Ventures Company Limited;
- Ceramic Fiber Insulation
- Fiberglass Insulation
- Rockwool Insulation
- Polyethylene Sound Insulation
- Polyethylene Heat Insulation
- Armaflex Insulation
- Styrofoam Insulation
- Acoustic Foam Insulation
- Acoustic Panel
- Acoustic Ceilings
Rockwool (Mineral Wool) Insulation
Rockwool Insulation ranks the best and ideal sound insulation material that is economical and highly efficient. If you are looking for sound insulation material that enhances sound efficiency and eliminates sound pollution, look no further than Rockwool Insulation the most popular soundproofing material in the World manufactured by Knauf.
Fiberglass insulation is the most common insulation material used in modern times. Because of how it is made, by effectively weaving fine strands of glass into an insulation material, fiberglass is able to minimize heat transfer. The main downside of fiberglass is the danger of handling it. Since fiberglass is made out of finely woven silicon, glass powder and tiny shards of glass are formed. These can cause damage to the eyes, lungs, and even skin if the proper safety equipment isn’t worn. Nevertheless, when the proper safety equipment is used, fiberglass installation can be performed without incident. Fiberglass is an excellent non-flammable insulation material, with R-values ranging from R-2.9 to R-3.8 per inch. If you are seeking a cheap insulation this is definitely the way to go, though installing it requires safety precautions. Be sure to use eye protection, masks, and gloves when handling this product
Polyethylene Insulation Form
Polyethylene insulation is closed-cell foam, meaning its structure is made of millions of tiny globules, sealed off from each other. This insulating materials have better sound-insulation sound-absorbing and heat insulation properties. Some advantages of polyethylene acoustic form include minimal low water retention, extra stability and structural strength, excellent weathering, ageing resistance. Other advantages are resistance against dirt, humidity and freezing temperatures. The form is also resistant to solvents, petroleum products, and is antimicrobial as well, inhibiting the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria. A resilient material, polyethylene returns to original state after compression, while still yielding enough to provide cushion and security where it is needed. It is these characteristics, combined with its versatility and customization possibilities that makes polyethylene useful in so many applications.
