Can anyone tell me if they have used Wallrock Thermal Liner and what views they have about it.
Needed for a cold bedroom, with 3 outside walls. One with a window and radiator, one with an electric socket and one with the light switch. Not knowing what it is or how thick, I thought those details might be needed.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Casper is correct, its a lining paper. I would image its polystyrene, 41 years ago when I moved into this house I scrapped this stuff off every room or similar

Have to say the walls did feel warm, didn't feel it was needed once the central heating went in.

used the polystyrene stuff that comes on a roll) on a couple of walls in the past and it will stop some condensation and as previous chap said t makes the wallpaper warm to the touch. Doesn't sound the same stuff if 39 a roll at toolstation. Only 4.99 a roll (smaller) at Wickes

Its definitely not the same, Wickes would never be so benevolent to sell anything 30 cheaper.
It might be a cheaper alternative. Wallrock is a bit thicker, 3.2 mm, my concern would be, if you paper over it, what happens when you want to change the paper?
When scrapping the paper off, is the Wallrock going to come off with it?

When we moved into a house in 1979 one of the walls had what sounds similar and it was a nightmare to strip the walls. Just like when you open anything packed in polystyrene, bits go all over the place. I can't comment on how effective it was because the wallpaper covering it was grotesque and had to go immediately.
As regards the bedroom being cold, just let somebody have it that you are not too fond of smile

Thanks folks. It seemed to be a cheaper option, as opposed to having certain alternatives, of which I'm not even sure some would be possible.
Put the thinking cap on .
I thought polystyrene was illegal, or is that just those horrible ceiling tiles ?

Go on the toolstation site granny, there are some cheaper alternatives, look under painting and decorating.

The cheap thermal lining does come off when you strip but I found I had to use a vacuum cleaner to get most of it off the wall.
