THE DEPTHS of winter are a time when homeowners’ thoughts turn to conserving heat within the home and minimising the dreaded heating bills.


Insulated wallcoverings can make a significant difference to both issues, and add a further dimension to the decorator’s areas of expertise. 


Crown Decorating Centres across the UK are seeing a rise in demand for leading thermal insulated papers such as Wallrock which combine strength and durability with class leading thermal efficiency and energy saving properties.


Explained Paula Taylor, Marketing Manager for Crown Decorating Centres: “The Wallrock range has been approved by the Energy Saving Trust.


“Being 3mm in thickness it offers worthwhile energy savings, for example 15% on typical solid brick external walls, and works to save energy from the moment the heating is turned on, by slowing down the rate at which a cold walls soak up heat energy.


“It allows the room to warm up considerably faster, in some cases more than halving warm up times, creating a comfortable room environment with less energy. Then once the room is warmed up, Thermal Liner goes on working, producing steady energy savings.


“Decorators also tell us that it’s great for covering and reinforcing poor plaster and other surfaces such as plasterboard and also has excellent soundproofing qualities.”


A wide range of Wallrock Thermal Insulating Papers, including the Energy Saving Trust-listed Wallrock Thermal Liner and KV600, are available at Crown Decorating Centres.  With more than 130 stores across the UK, you’re never far away from a Crown Decorating Centre.
