The Most Innovative Product of 2011

After a number of entries and some tough competition we decided that the company who best deserved the award was Insofast Ltd for their Insulated Plasterboard Fixings. Insofast supplies high performance insulation fixings designed for thermal efficient construction and retrofit insulation upgrades.

Mr Andrew Latimer was ready to receive the award on behalf of Insofast and Twistfix Technical Manager, Ray Evans, had it ready to hand over.

“Insofast Plasterboard Fixings are not only innovative but they are a brand new product to enter the 2011 market. We were extremely impressed; they are fire-proof mechanical fixings designed specifically for fastening plasterboard insulation sheets to walls.  They are quick and easy to use and can be depended upon for lasting performance”

Drywall fasteners offer reduced cold bridging potential and enhanced corrosion resistance, our galvanised plasterboard insulation fixings provide a cost effective alternative to dot and dab.  The helical fixings have a dished head to countersink into plasterboard, without tearing the paper face and both are fire resistant. 

The helical shank corkscrews through the insulated plasterboard panel and into a light-weight block without the need for pre-drilling.  Additionally the fastener fixes plasterboard to concrete blocks and brick via a small 5mm pilot hole.

Make sure that you check out Insofast products, which you will find in Insulation Fixings category.

We would like to take this chance to thank all suppliers who entered into this competition and to congratulate Insofast once again for achieving the award for the Most Innovative Product of 2011.
