Although not exactly a summer product, demand for insulation is higher than ever, due to the increase in building work around the country. This has even lead to Celotex having to extend their usual 3-4 day lead time to two weeks, and Kingspan’s Thermawall, Thermafloor and Thermapitch insulation is going out of the warehouse as soon as it comes in.
