Wallrock Thermal Liner and the new and improved version, Wallrock KV600 Thermal Liner, are the number one choice of thermal lining paper for those in the know. This is because Wallrock Thermal Liner is 3.2 mm thick and is designed with one layer of top quality Wallrock Fibreliner, backed with a technologically advanced thermal insulation material ensuring that your rooms not only look beautiful, they will also heat up more quickly thus reducing your energy bills.
Wallrock Thermal Liner offers a massive array of benefits including heat and sound insulation for all types of walls and ceilings including solid walls, damp and mould resistance, plus a wonderfully smooth surface for decorating.
Wallrock Thermal Liner Saves Energy & Money
Wallrock Thermal Lining Paper delivers so much more than a traditional lining paper ever will and decorators who take pride in their work know this. You will struggle to find many other lining papers that can boast about their energy saving and insulating properties; their ability to sound and damp proof walls and ceilings; or the superior smooth surface they provide, even over cracked or damaged plaster. (When you need a superior thermal lining paper don't forget to take a look at the New! Wallrock KV600 Thermal Liner, which we also stock at GoWallpaper.)
Wallrock Thermal Liner does all of the above tasks with ease which is what makes it the premier thermal lining paper choice for decorating professionals all over the UK. It’s also extremely easy to hang.
Substantially Reduces Heat Loss & Increases Room Warm Up Times
Aside from offering a beautifully smooth surface for decorating, using Wallrock Thermal Liner on your walls and ceilings will reduce heat loss by up to 36% and your rooms will heat up substantially quicker. This means big savings on both energy bills and CO2 emissions. Because Wallrock allows walls to breathe it resists damp and mould growth.
On top of all of that, Wallrock Thermal Liner also provides a significant amount of Sound Insulation. At 2000hz, which is equal to noise coming from TV’s or radio’s, there will be a 30% reduction in sound transference. At 4000hz, which is equivalent to a loud vacuum or busy main road, noise will be reduced by 35%. Decorate with Wallrock Thermal Liner and your home will not only be warmer, it will be quieter and more tranquil too.
Heat & Sound Insulating + Energy Saving + Damp & Mould Resistant + Super Smooth Surface
With a list of benefits this long, it’s clear why many choose Wallrock Thermal Liner over a traditional lining paper so regularly.
Which side should go against the wall?
Always apply Wallrock Thermal Liner with the fluffy side to the wall leaving the smooth flat side facing outwards.
How much Thermal Liner Adhesive does 1 roll use?
On average, flat surfaces 3.5kg, damaged and textured surfaces 5kg. *Typical coverage may vary depending on application*.
What area does 1 roll of Thermal Liner cover?
The roll size is 10m x 75cm and covers 7.5 Square Metres – to find out how many rolls you need please use our wallpaper calculator in the top navigation.
How do I tackle external corners?
Well you have 2 options, Thermal liner will bend around the corner but this will give you a rounded corner, alternatively you can cut and butt joint at the corner, this option is best if you are applying a Wallrock Lining Paper or Wallrock Textured paper on top as it will hide the joint.
Do I paste the wall or the paper?
Wallrock Thermal Liner is a 'Paste the Wall Product Only'. We recommend the adhesive should be applied with a roller directly onto the wall.
Can I hang Thermal Liner on ceilings?
Yes, but before applying you must lightly sand the ceiling and size with a PVA or Flake Adhesive, this will form a good surface for the Thermal Liner Adhesive to adhere to.
Can I paint directly on to the Wallrock Thermal Liner?
Yes, the surface paper is actually Wallrock Fibreliner which is a non-woven Lining Paper.
Why do you recommend lining over the top of Thermal Liner?
Two main reasons,
Important - If you are planning to hang lining paper on top of Wallrock Thermal Liner, we strongly recommend that you use a non-woven lining paper such as Wallrock Fibreliner Plus, Wallrock Fibreliner or Wallrock premium.
Traditional lining paper shrinks and expands when pasted and can cause lifting on the joints In contrast; non-woven lining paper is dimensionally stable and ensures a perfect finish.
Do we need to take off the existing wallpaper?
No, if the existing wallpaper is firmly stuck to the wall then Thermal Liner should cover it, however if it has a deep pattern (more than 2.5mm) or is a Vinyl based paper we would recommend that it is taken off before applying the Thermal Liner.
I have some really bad textured walls in my house do I need to take special precautions when applying Thermal Liner over such poor surfaces?
Not really, just make sure the walls are clean, dry and solid. If the texture is very deep as with some decorative plaster effects it is advisable to sand down the high points and use extra adhesive to help level the surface. We would advise that after hanging the first drop stand back and make sure the results are satisfactory.
I like the product, where in the house can I use it to best effect?
Wallrock Thermal Liner is certainly most effective as an energy saver on outside walls and especially so if the walls are of solid construction (without cavities). However other key benefits of the product include acting as a sound insulation and covering over textured surfaces to produce a flat surface.
What do you mean by outside walls?
Walls inside the building which are exposed to the weather on the opposite side.
I remember those old polystyrene insulation tiles that were a fire hazard, so I have worries in this regard to Thermal Liner?
Thermal Liner is classified as "E" according to DIN EN 13501-1 in relation to fire behaviour, which corresponds to "B2" (normally inflammable) according to the standard DIN 4102-1.
I like the product however I'm worried about how it will look around light switches and skirting boards?
Thermal Liner is less than 3.2mm thick and a neat finish is therefore possible in most applications, skirting, coving or light switches for example do not appear to be 'sunk' below the wall surface. Don't forget Thermal Liner works best on outside walls, significant benefits can be achieved without the need to apply it to every internal surface.
Can you use Wallrock thermal Liner in bathrooms?
Yes, but you must use 'Thermal Liner Adhesive' as it is specially formulated to hang Thermal Liner. We however 'Do Not' recommend you use within shower areas.
How does it work?
Thermal Liner works in a different way to traditional insulating products. For a start we realise that rooms are rarely heated constantly 24 / 7. So Thermal Liner works by reducing warm up times dramatically as is begins to work immediately the heating is turned on because it is on the inside of the outside wall. Conventional products only work after the inside wall has being heated which can take hours - the very time you are likely to be in the room. Once the room has warmed up Wallrock Thermal continues to resist energy loss.
It is OK saying I will save money but will I physically notice a difference?
Yes you will do, especially when the heating is first turned on as room warm up time is reduced dramatically and the air currents that make you feel cold whilst the room warms up are also reduced. This is of course in addition to all the other benefits such as a reduction in noise through the treated wall.

Significantly Reduces Room Warm Up Time
Made from a technologically advanced thermal insulation material bonded to a high quality lining paper, Wallrock Thermal Liner creates a warm blanket for your walls and ceilings which significantly reduces room warm up time, stops heat escaping through walls and ceilings, minimises condensation, mould and damp, and reduces your energy bills too.
Thermal Liner Also Provides Sound Insulation
Because Wallrock Thermal Liner is so thick (3.2mm), it also provides a substantial amount of sound insulation, reducing noise by up to 35%. In addition, Thermal Liner covers up rough or damaged walls to transform them into a flat finish.
The most effective place to place any thermal barrier is on the inside of the coldest walls which is why we have developed this product especially for use on the inside of your home. It is especially effective on external walls by which we mean walls that are open to the elements on the other side.
When a room has been lined with Wallrock Thermal Liner it separates the cold mass of the wall from the room environment and reduces both the cooling effect of the wall and cold air currents in the room created by the differential temperature zones within a room. Therefore, the maximum amount of heat is available to heat up the room air.
Rooms thus become warm and cosy up to 65% more quickly and energy consumption is reduced by up to 35%. Any room will benefit from the use of thermal liner, the biggest benefits however are in older houses with solid wall construction.
Crack and texture coverage
The high level of elasticity in the flexible fibres and 3.2mm thickness of the material enable class A and B cracks in base surfaces to be covered very well. Wallrock Thermal Liner also provides excellent coverage of slightly to medium textured base surfaces - without pre-levelling.
Mould is not only unsightly but is unhealthy too and is often blamed for allergy and other medical problems. Walls that have a surface temperature which is distinctly cooler than the ambient temperature allow condensation to form and as a result are an ideal breeding ground for unhealthy mould formation. This is why the problem is often seen on outside walls and close to windows.
The warm and moist room air condenses on the cooler areas of the walls and creates condensation. The moist walls then form a perfect breeding ground for mould to grow. Permeable Wallrock Thermal Liner is the solution to walls with this kind of problem. It increases the surface temperature of the wall, prevents condensation and therefore combats mould formation.
So Easy to Hang
Don’t be put off by the thickness of this liner either. Since it is a Paste the Wall product it is incredibly easy to hang. Just watch the video on the Wallrock Thermal Liner Category Page to see how simple it is.
While Wallrock Thermal Liner supplies a superb surface for paint, we recommend that you use a Non-Woven Lining Paper over the top for a totally flawless finish. If you’re planning on hanging a textured wallpaper such as Wallrock Texture over thermal liner, then a secondary lining paper is unnecessary.
To sum up a fanatastic products for thermal insulation, will creak a clean new surface to start decorating on and becuase of its fantastic range of properties will last for years.
Helpful And Knowledgeable
Everyone at gowallpaper is helpful and knowledgeable. Nothing is too much trouble and they are more than willing to pass on their knowledge and helpful tips. I wish other companies would learn from you. Have started putting up the KV600 so will feel the full effect when the weather gets colder.
Does What It Says
Does what it says and nice to work with... The only thing is that it was quite hard to cut into... but I guess this would be expected!
Warmer SMOOTHER Walls
I live in a mid terrace Victorian house. We bought this paper for the insulating properties, but honestly the smooth finish on once bumpy walls was a huge bonus! Our walls look like they've been skimmed and are really warm to touch including outside walls.
Excellent service, order placed at 1pm on Tuesday 25/09/14 and delivered at 2.30pm to Aberdeen on Wednesday 26/09/14.
1st Class Service And Products.
The KV 600 did a great job of covering our old slightly rough sold brick walls. Very tough and durable looking product, and looks like it should help with retaining the heat in the winter months. Get a good knife and paper smoother as made fitting much easier. Stuck the fibre liner on top and then painted and I'm no professional decorator but the finish looks great. Got the recommended glue which sticks great and much easier pasting the wall rather than onto the paper.
