It can be a minefield picking out the differences between construction products, especially with so many competing claims about what is the ‘best’ solution. Insulation solutions are the perfect example – all offer a low thermal conductivity, but exactly how low do you need to go?
Polyisocyanurate (PIR) and extruded polystyrene (XPS) are both lightweight, rigid foam boards used for thermal insulation in buildings.
The required thermal transmission – aka U-value – for a construction element (floor, wall or roof) determines the thickness of thermal insulation that has to be incorporated within that element’s build-up.
High compressive strength thermal insulation for inverted, green and blue roofs.
Very high compressive strength thermal insulation for high load inverted roofs and car park decks.
High compressive strength thermal insulation for residential buildings.
High compressive strength thermal insulation for residential and industrial buildings.
