A classic Parisian apartment is benefitting from the thermal effectiveness of the introduction of the innovative ultra-thin Spacetherm®

WL insulation. Property owner

Keirnan Murphy has made a significant investment in the renovation of the apartment to improve overall comfort, energy efficiency and to reduce heating costs. Keirnan explains: “We are very pleased with the results and we noticed that when leaning up against the Spacetherm WL you can feel your back warm against the

insulation. The A. Proctor Group were extremely helpful in addressing all the questions from the architect and ourselves. They also provided comprehensive support and guidance to our builder on the installation.”

01250 872261 Marmox Tilebacker board used for five bathroom fit-out

Launched recently, ‘The Tilebacker’ board manufactured by Marmox Limited, has been chosen by a specialist sub-contractor working on a very large residential property in Maidstone, to help create a total of five bathrooms and en-suite shower rooms. Locally based J. Jupp Tiling works across Kent and into the capital, mainly on domestic contracts, and has been a long time user of Marmox products including the manufacturer’s widely specified Multiboards. With some 130m2

of wall area

to address and 22mm thick structural ply already fixed in place as the substrate, it made practical and economic sense to switch to the new value-for-money alternative. Director Josh Jupp comments: “I have been using Marmox products including Multiboard, along with the tapes and fixings, for a good while and always found them very dependable for the high-end residential projects we are involved on. I like the new Tilebacker which is relatively lighter and even simpler to cut than the Multiboard and it seemed perfect for the house in Maidstone where we are working for a private developer. The Tilebacker boards will soon be covered with 1200 x 1200 x 6mm Italian tiles, which will create really striking interiors. This has been a successful first try out with the new boards and I am planning to use them again for our next job which features more than 300m2


tiling, including three very large bathrooms.” 01634 835290
