    Thermal bridges

    picture bottom of page 37 states Cellular glass insulation bearing to replace removed brickwork to ensure the insulation is continuous to the newly installed window....

    My question is where can this be bought I'm about to fix a new window


    I thought it was a good read but lacking in detail where can I get more from?

    I now know a little about Foamglas,

    Spoke to Cornings this morning who told me it comes in blocks 600 x450 x whatever You want between 40 -180mm,

    What thickness do I need I've asked Warrens Insulation to quote me for 50mm thick,

    Apparantly its cut into pieces depending on size of opening and size of material to be fitted...a window / door

    I was reading another piece on this but can't find it can U tell me what its called...?


    All the info seems to be at foamglas dot co dot uk - except price supply.

    Cheers Mike up North

    Yes, RobL on this site bought some online from Insulation Direct 2 U which was less than £200 delivered, never mind delivery, so try them.

    Depending on exactly how you are using it you may be able to use the larger bare panels you are talking about, which are quite cheap at about £3.50 each, or you may need to use perinsul blocks, which have a bituminous coating, and possibly a different/guaranteed strength spec, but cost much more. About £5 per 450x100x100 block (I've just use loads of them, and they are good gear, but I don't really understand why the sheet form is so much cheaper...)
