Product selector tool
Published:  08 May, 2014

armacell.jpgThermal and acoustic insulation manufacturer ARMACELL has developed a new product selector website and app to help contractors and mechanical services engineers choose the right technical insulation solution depending on the different application parameters they select. The tool features a series of yes or no questions that funnels down the list of suitable Armacell products for the application depending on the answers given.

Armacell is the manufacturer of Armaflex flexible elastomeric foam rubber products for energy saving and condensation control of HVAC and mechanical services equipment (including pipework, air ducts, vessels and valves). TheUKmanufactured products include the recently launched AF/Armaflex Class O product range, a combination of the long established Class O Armaflex formulation with the European standard AF/Armaflex product with improved water vapour diffusion resistance and thermal conductivity ratings. The new AF/Armaflex Class O product merges together the entire range of tubes, self-adhesive tubes (AF/Armaflex Class O Self Seal), sheets, tape and pipe supports together under the same product group and harmonised technical values for the first time.

The new formulation was necessitated by the introduction of the Construction Products Regulation introduced in 2013.              

The new product selector tool has been created with this new development in mind, complete with the latest AF/Armaflex Class O range information and the range of Arma-Chek covering systems to protect Armaflex from mechanical impact and weatherisation effects when installed outdoors.
