Do Any Of These Sound Like Your Decorating Problems?
- Freezing cold walls or cold spots causing condensation?
- Walls where the wind has been blowing through the cracks?
- Condensation issues around bay windows due to a lack of cavity, inadequate coverage of ceiling insulation and airflow problems?
- Freezing porches and hallways due to single brick?
- External walls where the temperature is distinctly lower than your other walls?
GPS Decorators have a cost effective solution to treat these problems. We have come across a number of projects where we have utilised our knowledge to great effect and where re-papering wouldn’t tackle the problem and simply wouldn’t be professional.
In all of theses instances we would always offer our solution of using a thermal liner.
What Is Thermal Lining Paper?
A specialist thermal lining paper that offers so many benefits. Specially developed by Erfurt Mav, it is primarily an energy saving and wall insulation product that utilises technology originally developed for Aerospace.
How Does Thermal Wallpaper Work?
It Significantly Reduces Room Warm Up Time
It is made from a technologically advanced, thermal insulation material bonded to a high quality lining paper. Wallrock Thermal Liner creates a warm blanket for your walls and ceilings which significantly reduces room warm up time, stops heat escaping through walls and ceilings, minimises condensation, mould and damp and reduces your energy bills, too.
It Provides Sound Insulation
Because it is so thick (3.2mm) it also provides a substantial amount of sound insulation, reducing noise by up to 35%. In addition, it covers up rough or damaged walls to transform them into a flat finish.
It Is Energy Saving
The most effective place to add any thermal barrier is on the inside of the coldest walls. It is especially effective on external walls by which we mean walls that are open to the elements on the other side. When a room has been lined with Wallrock Thermal Liner it reduces both the cooling effect of the wall and cold air currents in the room created by the differential temperature zones within a room. Rooms become warm and cosy up to 65% more quickly and energy consumption is reduced by up to 35%.
Any room will benefit from the use of thermal liner. The biggest benefits however are in older houses with solid wall construction.
It Covers Cracks & Provides Textured Coverage
The high level of elasticity in the flexible fibres and 3.2mm thickness of the paper covers cracks exceptionally well. Wallrock Thermal Liner also provides excellent coverage of slight to medium textured base surfaces without pre-levelling.
It Helps Minimise & Prevent Mould
Mould is not only unsightly but is unhealthy too and is often blamed for allergy and other medical problems. Walls that have a surface temperature which is distinctly cooler than the ambient room temperature allow condensation to form. As a result it creates an ideal breeding ground for unhealthy mould formation. This is why the problem is often seen on outside walls and close to windows. The warm and moist room air condenses on the cooler areas of the walls and creates condensation. Permeable Wallrock Thermal Linerim is the solution to walls with this kind of problem. It increases the surface temperature of the wall, prevents condensation and therefore combats mould formation.
While the thermal liner supplies a superb surface for paint, we always finish it with the use of non woven lining paper over the top for a totally flawless finish.
14 Benefits Of Wallrock Thermal Lining Paper:
- Reduces room warm up time
- Improves room comfort
- Reduces energy consumption
- It can be painted or overhung for perfect finish
- TUV certificated as hypoallergenic
- Promotes a healthy environment by allowing walls to breathe
- Combats mould and damp formation
- Reduces noise pollution
- Contains no PVC or fibreglass
- Compatible with period features in older properties.
- Covers problem surface such as cracked plaster, textured surfaces and even some woodchip papers
- Suitable for walls and ceilings
- Quick & easy to hang using the ‘Paste the Wall’ method
- Creates a stable surface for paint or wallpaper
Important: If you are planning to hang lining paper or wallpaper on top of a thermal liner we strongly recommend that you use a non woven lining paper such as Wallrock Fibreliner. Traditional lining paper shrinks and expands when pasted and can cause lifting on the joints. In contrast, non woven lining paper is dimensionally stable and ensures a perfect finish.
