Installatie,

Every 2 years, Arch-Vision measures (spontaneous) the preferred brands among architects for 7 product categories (based on 1,600 successful interviews with architects). I would like to share with you some results of the insulation materials category, in this case for the UK.

In this category, Kingspan takes the lead in the top five most preferred brands. Celotex and Roclwool took the 2e and 3e place respectively.  

Besides the preferred brands, the architects were also asked to name the characteristics which makes a brand preferred. For insulation materials the number one characteristic was innovation, coming with new alternatives.

In total 7 product categories were measured in 8 countries (the UK, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Poland, France, Italia and Spain).

The product cateogories measured are:

  • Raw building materials
  • Insulation products
  • HVAC products
  • Finishing products
  • Bathroom products
  • Elevators, escalators, rolling & automated doors
