The most efficient and safe operation of plumbing and mechanical services relies upon suitable and sufficient thermal and acoustic insulation to adequately reduce heat loss, prevent condensation and attenuate operating noise of the applicable service.
Thermal insulation is used on a wide range of heating and ventilation systems, from air conditioning systems through to heating ductwork, steam and hot water services, low temperature or chilled water services.
Poorly insulated systems waste energy and operate inefficiently; costing you money and potentially introducing health and safety risks into your premises such as burns and scalds or slips and trips from dripping condensate. Properly insulated plant will reduce ambient temperatures in plantrooms too, removing or reducing heat stress problems.
Our trained and qualified engineers, working predominantly throughout Cornwall & Devon, but also across Southern England, provide a heating insulation and ductwork cladding service within industrial and commercial premises, reducing heat-loss from new and existing services and HVAC systems.
Gwella’s Insulation Division is vastly experienced and we field a team of qualified Thermal Insulation Engineers and Managers capable of tackling the most challenging of projects. We believe in investing in our workforce and have recently appointed two Apprentice engineers to ensure that our teams are passing their huge knowledge on and helping to ensure that our qualified workforce continues to grow.
We work very closely with our clients ensuring that we provide market leading materials, whilst ensuring these meet all specifications and requirements.
Recent projects range from schools and hospitals to large factories and engineering workshops to smaller boiler rooms and domestic installations in blocks of flats.
Whether we are installing HVAC sections, duct wrap or duct slab, different environments also require different cladding and finishing to protect the finished installation.
We offer a wide range of finishes to suit the environment, such as:
- Aluminum, stainless steel, aluzinc and plastisol sheet cladding
- Isogenopak, Venture clad and Polyisobutylene (PIB) finishing
- Foil-faced finish
Our experienced and qualified operatives take enormous pride in their work and we are confident that our cladding and finishing is second to none.
We can also offer bespoke insulating jackets to ensure insulation is maintained around valves, flanges and fittings which otherwise are difficult to lag. Industry standard identification bands and labels are supplied and installed to ensure all services are clearly distinguishable.
