Celotex GA4000 is a general purpose insulation board for floors, walls and roofs. It has long been at the heart of the Celotex product range providing the user with a range of thermal insulation solutions.
With low emissivity foil facings, GA4000 is manufactured from rigid polyisocyanurate (PIR) using a blend of blowing agents that have zero ozone depletion potential (zero ODP) and low global warming potential (GWP).
With Celotex GA4000 you are specifying an insulation board that:
- Is suitable for use in a number of applications including roof, wall and floor systems
- Comes in thicknesses ranging from 50mm-100mm
- Is easy to cut and shape
- Includes low emissivity foil facings giving improved thermal insulation
Performance within cavity air spaces:
- Provides reliable long-term energy savings for buildings
- Is available in a standard board size of 1200mm x 2400mm
Celotex GA4000 can be specified for use in a variety of applications including:
- Pitched Roofs
- Flat Roofs
- Solid Masonry Walls
- Timber Framed & Steel Framed systems
The insulation shall be Celotex GA4000 ________mm thick comprising a polyisocyanurate rigid foam insulation core, with a thermal conductivity of 0.022W/mK and low emissivity aluminium foil facings on both sides. GA4000 is A+ rated when compared to the BRE Green Guide 2008 and is CFC/HCFC free with zero ODP and low GWP. CE marking compliance to BS EN 13165:2001 and manufactured in accordance with quality management systems BS EN ISO 9001:2000 by Celotex Limited.

Under Joist Flat Roof
Installation of SuperQuilt for under joist fat roof applications and additional insulation products should be in accordance with the manufacturers certificate, fixing instructions and current good building practice.
SuperQuilt should be overlapped at each joint by approx 50mm and stapled onto the joists, the joints should be sealed using YBS Foil Tape When SuperQuilt is cut to fit around openings or connections, gaps must be minimized and any exposed cut edges should be sealed with YBS Foil Tape to prevent condensation
SuperQuilt should be cut equal to the width of the roof section plus 100mm. Installation should start from the external wall with SuperQuilt being unrolled perpendicular to the joists, after which it is fixed using staples, nails or YBS saddle clips.
SuperQuilt should be held in place using timber battens or by other means as shown, in such a way that there is a
nominal 25mm air cavity above the product (if applicable) and a nominal 25mm air cavity below To minimize the effect of thermal bridging cross battening is advised
When installed below joists SuperQuilt will perform as a vapour barrier.
