I need at least 10 sheets!does anyone know of an alternative :idea: peferbly cheaper :?: would be using 12.5mm board on walls.

Try looking at the websites of Kingspan and Celotex. They will be able to calculate your u-values for you on a 65mm thick board. These producets are also quite expensive so be warned!

Hope this helps.
