Proteus Waterproofing is one of few suppliers to have an experienced insulation arm to support its wide range of systems.
It means we are the ultimate specialist, able to provide the right specification and products for every project – even those in areas where the risk of fire can be a major concern.
We provide a choice of all types of insulation which will help with the intricate design and details that clients demand. Our in-house technical design team can overcome even the most challenging project criteria with innovative design solutions and hybrid options.This is particularly relevant in party wall type installations where conventional PUR insulation cannot deliver the same levels of performance required under current building regulations.
Choosing the right insulation
Current Building Regulations state that when refurbishing an existing roof, the minimum insulation threshold of U-value 0.35 W/m²K must be achieved to avoid the necessity to upgrade the roof insulation along with the waterproofing.
When this minimum value is achieved, most roofs avoid a condensation issue. If this insulation value is present, a roof can be overlaid with a waterproofing membrane only. If there is less or no insulation in the roof build-up then the roof, where feasible, should be upgraded with roof insulation to meet a minimum U-Value of 0.18 W/m2K.

Why is it important to choose the right insulation?
Choosing the right insulation is essential for achieving the desired performance and to meet building regulations. Current building regulations state that when refurbishing an existing roof, the minimum insulation threshold of U-Value 0.35 W/m²K must be achieved. This can be achieved by overlaying the roof with a waterproofing membrane only if the existing insulation meets this threshold. If the existing insulation does not meet this threshold, the roof must be upgraded with roof insulation to meet a minimum U-Value of 0.18 W/m2K.
What are technical insulation solutions?
Technical insulation solutions are designed to meet the specific needs of complex projects, such as those with fire safety concerns or intricate design requirements. Proteus Waterproofing, with its experienced insulation division, supports a broad range of systems, positioning us as a leading specialist in this field.
