What is Aluthermo Quattro insulation?
Aluthermo Quattro is a type of insulation which 2Hot2Cold use for their insulated conservatory ceilings. It’s a great, all-in-one solution because it acts as an insulation material, vapour barrier and roof membrane all in one. It is made from an ultra-thin, multi-reflective material with four layers of aluminium which are thermally-welded together.
Aluthermo Quattro consists of two 30-micron thick outer layers of polished and anti oxidation treated pure aluminium layers, separated by two honeycombed layers of air bubbles with a fire-retardant polyethylene film enclosed inside. There are also two extra layers of pure aluminium foil, a fire-retardant and water-repellent polyethylene foam.
