    Just browsing and came across a new (to me at least) "Ultra Thin High Performance Vacuum Insulation Panels" called VACUpor, one of several prodcuts in a series. See http://www.vacuum-panels.co.uk/

    "Please note: drilling, cutting, milling, nailing or otherwise puncturing vacuum insulated panels will remove all their insulating properties" - humm.....

    Is this too good to be true? Anyone come across it or maybe even used it?

    I would not trust builders merchants with them. Pound to a shilling they would damage them not to mention builders. Not heard of them before my concern would how long will the vacuum last and how would you know if you got a dud one. Guess only of specialised use where no danger of piercing them would exist.

    I have heard of them before but haven't used them. IIRC they used to be quoted with a lifetime of ten years - similar to a gas-filled double-glazed unit for similar reasons. So they should be mounted in a position where they can be easily replaced, which is not easy for insulation panels. They seem useful for things like fridges.
