Testing equipment in the YBS lab

U-value calculations and other YBS services

YBS Insulation is not just a world-leading manufacturer of multi-foil reflective insulation solutions, we also provide both our DIY and professional customers with all the assistance they need to install our products with complete confidence and peace of mind, and to get the absolute most out of them. Read on to find out how YBS is also best placed to advise and assist you with U-value calculations and other services.

U-value and other calculations

YBS can help you with two types of calculations. Firstly, all YBS website visitors have access to our free and easy to use U-value calculator. In just four steps, this tool guides you to the solution that is the best match for your project – and one that complies with the Building Regulations. You can also get in touch with our Technical Support Team for bespoke U-value calculations. Secondly, our calculations service includes project-specific condensation risk analysis.

Expert advice and one-stop-shop

We happily advise end users and builders on how to select the right solution and apply it, guiding them through their project and inviting them to come to us with any queries they may have – both before installing our products (with questions about compatibility, for instance) and after (for example asking us to check images of the end result to make sure all is correct).

Architects can rely on us for specifications advice. Please don’t hesitate to share drawings with us so we can help you compare thermal solutions that comply with the current Building Regulations. Together, we will find the best match for their project. Our in-house CAD designer can deliver professional CAD drawing services for you as well.

Full online training centre

We are committed to helping our distribution customers understand the advantages and the workings of reflective insulation, to make their projects succeed, and enabling them to assist the end users that buy our products from them. Our online training centre contains a wealth of easy-to-understand training material for users from all expertise levels, such as:

        application solution guides to help you find the right YBS solution

        custom-built online training modules for various products and a wide range of applications

        CGI videos that take you through the installation process

We also offer a free webinar to walk you through the benefits of multifoils and bubble insulation membranes, an FAQ section that is worth exploring, as well as products packs and other helpful downloads.

In-house testing

The products in our range are BDA Kiwa Agrément certified or (depending on the country of destination) CE marked to industry standards. As a quality manufacturer, we pride ourselves on our in-house testing lab with state-of-the-art equipment for thermal, fire, tensile strength, and nail tear resistance testing, among other tests.
