SWISS KRONO flex
flexible infill insulation

SWISS KRONO flex is specially designed for use as infill insulation in ceilings, roofs and both exterior and interior walls. Available in thicknesses from 40 to 240 mm, it excels above all due to the ease with which it can wedged in place and the fact that it stays as installed without being attached. SWISS KRONO flex reduces energy costs and enhances wellbeing.

Saves energy and is easy to use

SWISS KRONO flex, the professional feel-good insulation from our SWISS KRONO system programme which keeps buildings pleasantly cool in the summer and keeps agreeable warmth inside in the winter. In both new and renovated buildings, SWISS KRONO flex lets you achieve an optimal indoor feel-good climate. During installation, this natural insulating material already makes a convincing impression because it is pleasant to the touch and is inherently very stiff, allowing it to be reliably installed in very wide sections simply by wedging it into place.

SWISS KRONO flex is a proven, flexible, highly insulating and water-vapour-permeable fibreboard insulating material that reliably keeps out heat, cold and noise. SWISS KRONO flex excels not only because of its outstanding insulating properties, but also because of its environmental benefits and the fact that it forms part of an integrated system.

SWISS KRONO flex has been awarded the natureplus® quality mark by the International Association for Future-Oriented Building and Accommodation - natureplus e.V. natureplus® is a major label for sustainable living and accommodation products that have been tested for health, environmental friendliness and functionality. It helps architects, users, merchants, and ultimately builder-owners choose environmentally sound, healthy products.


Special characteristics

  • Flexible, highly insulating, water-vapour-permeable, fibreboard insulating material
  • Extremely wide sections can be installed unattached, simply by pressing them into the space.
  • Very high heat storage capacity for excellent protection from summer heat
  • Sections only need to be cut slightly larger to remain securely in place when wedged into a space.
  • Tear-proof, dimensionally stable and non-settling
  • Superb indoor climate, thanks to moisture-regulating properties and a high sorption capacity
  • Excellent noise absorption
  • Recyclable
  • Pleasant to the touch and skin-friendly
  • Made from forest thinnings to ensure sustainability and environmental friendliness
  • Easy to handle and use
  • Approved by the building authorities and monitored by a neutral organisation

You can experience the full range of applications of our SWISS KRONO feel-good programme and our other KRONO system modules in our interactive KRONO Feel-Good House.


System for exterior walls

SWISS KRONO exterior wall system with F30 fire rating:

Components from the inside out:

9.5 mm of plasterboard
12 mm of SWISS KRONO OSB/F****, square-edge
200 mm of SWISS KRONO flex / KVH solid construction timber (as little as 160 mm is possible)
15 mm of Kronotec WP or DP50

U-factor: 0.21 W/m²K
Phase shift: 11 hours
Amplitude attenuation: 94%

Alternatively, there can be 12.5 mm of plasterboard on the inside and a 60-mm-thick installation layer, insulated with SWISS KRONO flex.


Properties

Very good protection against summer heat

Optimal protection from cold in winter

Excellent noise absorption

Pleasant to touch and skin-friendly (no gloves needed for processing)


Storage

Store in a dry location and do not use if moist.

Do not stack pallets.


Processing

During and after the installation of SWISS KRONO flex the construction has to be free of high moisture. The moisture content of rafters or studs has to be lower than 18 %.

To ensure that the insulation stays securely wedged in place, cut it to be at least 1% longer than the length of the cavity between studs or rafters.

Parts that will be exposed on the outside must be airtight on the inside.

Produced and monitored in accordance with EN 13171 and German approval Z-23.15-1581

Special formats and thicknesses on request

  • Cut sections slightly wider than the spaces they will be installed in, adding at least 1% of the clear width between studs, joists or rafters.
  • Also add at least 1% in the longitudinal direction.
  • Lay on top of rafters on a dry, load-distributing substrate.
  • Parts that will be exposed on the outside must be airtight on the inside.
  • After laying, immediately cover on the underside with a water-carrying plastic sheet or board.

Insulation knife

For fast, efficient cutting of sections and smaller pieces at the building site, we recommend using the SWISS KRONO insulation knife. Its blade was specially developed for cutting SWISS KRONO flex, and only slight pressure needs to be exerted to easily cut smooth, neat edges.The SWISS KRONO insulation knife is made of high-quality stainless steel from Solingen, Germany.
