Isover's APR 1200 roll provides high levels of acoustic enhancement to partitioning and dry wall systems in walls and floors. APR 1200 offers high levels of fire performance and has a zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential) and GWP (Global Warning Potential) rating. The product is also fully compatible with all standard building materials and components and is easy for the contractor to handle and install.

It is the only glass wool product specified under British Gypsum's life-long SpecSure system performance warranty.

Designed by BDP architects and patients of the Royal Alexandra Hospital for Sick Children, the £36 million project transforms the former Edwardian hospital into a modern unit fit for 21st century healthcare on the site of the Royal Sussex County Hospital.

Known as 'The Ark' due to its distinctive shape and proximity to the sea, it is designed to be open, full of sunlight and colour, and outward looking with no closed, claustrophobic corridors. More than 10,000sq m of Isover's APR 1200 was supplied by Sheffield Insulations and installed by main contractors Kajima Europe.
