Armacell UK Ltd


Armacell UK, the market leader in elastomeric thermal insulation products, is pleased to announce it has secured a contract extension until the end of 2013 to supply British Gas. The agreement maintains Armacell as the preferred supplier of pipe insulation for heating and plumbing installations, including central heating pipework and boiler condensate pipes.

In addition to polyethylene and elastomeric pipe insulation products, the new contract also includes a solution for protecting against property damage during boiler repairs and installations.

The products supplied to British Gas are manufactured in the UK, a factor which Armacell General Manager, Mike Rust, sees as integral to the success of the agreement. “As the only UK elastomeric insulation manufacturer we are able to produce tailored product solutions to satisfy local building and fire regulations whilst remaining competitive on price due to our comparatively low transport and haulage costs.”

Replacing old gas boilers with A-rated high-efficiency condensing boilers, in addition to using effective pipe insulation and improving heating controls can significantly cut carbon dioxide emissions – and save homeowners as much as £300 a year.
