Updates

February 2018 Update

 

IMPORTANT: Celotex RS5000 BS 8414-2 Testing

 

On 30th January we received a communication from Celotex, announcing a compliance issue with their declared full system fire performance testing for rainscreen cladding that features their RS5000 product.

 

Celotex have been conducting a detailed review of the way RS5000 was tested and marketed and determined that there were differences between the system as tested for BS 8414:2 and the description of that system in the report of the test.  

 

We understand that Celotex are evaluating whether there are any safety issues arising from these differences and are arranging further testing to clarify the results.

 

If you have any queries relating to the above please contact the dedicated Celotex hotline: 0330 159 5271

December 2017 Update

 
Following Celotex’s announcement on the 20th November, they have now provided a further update on the BBA certification of their 4000 range, Crown-Bond and Crown-Fix products. 
 
All products 100mm and above will continue to be manufactured in the GA4000, XR4000, Crown-Bond and Crown-Fix ranges and will continue to be marketed with a declared lambda of 0.022 W/mK.
 
All other current products from their TB4000, GA4000, PL4000 and CW4000 ranges manufactured after 15 December 2017, will be marketed from January as Celotex 3000 with a declared lambda of 0.023 W/mK.

November 2017 Update

 

As of the 20th November 2017, Celotex have published an announcement informing the market of compliance issues relating to the testing of their products declared lambda value.

 

The compliance issue relates to their 4000 and 5000 range, Crown-Fix and Crown-Bond products. However after discussions with the certificating body, BBA, the 4000 range, Crown-Fix and Crown-Bond products will continue to be marketed and therefore available to order at CCF.  The suspension of the 5000 range will continue and now includes the FI5000 and GD5000 products.

Following instruction from Celotex on 01/09/2017, we are temporarily removing Celotex FR5000, Celotex CG5000, Celotex CF5000 and Celotex SL5000 from our product offering.

What's happening

 

The PIR insulation market is facing further product shortages, as the key chemical needed for the manufacture of PIR is currently in short supply causing unforeseeable production issues.

 

Several manufacturers of PIR are experiencing severe delays in the production, which is resulting in a market wide shortage and extended lead times.

 

This is resulting in extended lead times.

 

 

What's CCF doing about it?

 

At CCF, we aim to provide the best availability of products for our customers across our expansive branch network. As a result we are working closely with our suppliers and doing everything we can to manage the situation  to minimise  disruption and to ensure availability is back to normal as quickly as possible.

 

As a leading insulation and interior building products distributor, we understand that our customers can not afford to experience poor stock availability. A reliable service is key to ensure projects are complete on time and to budget.

 

We’re not willing to leave our customers in the dark without a solution. Therefore below we’ve summarised a number of alternative products to PIR insulation and how these can be used, so your work is not interrupted...
