The Building Insulation
materials act as the barrier to deterioration. Its closed cell structure offers a number of special characteristics and advantages at the installation like protection from heat, temperature and moisture. The insulation acts as an envelope to your construction protecting it from any possible harm. Below are the few examples of some widely used building insulation
products categorized based on their function and composition.
The Polystyrene (XPS) BoardThe polystyrene (XPS) foam is a special, high-performance insulation material that offers long term durability. It is a product of excellent mechanical strength that is odourless, non-irritant to skin and gives clean finishing to your work. It is resistant to moisture, freeze thaw cycle, rot and deterioration. Also, it is easy to cut with simple tools, lightweight and user friendly.
Flat roof insulation
Another type of building insulation is flat roof insulation. The insulation protects the waterproof covering from the Wide temperature variations, degradation from weathering and, mechanical damage during construction, use and maintenance. The performance and longevity of flat roofs depend upon many factors, like the position of the insulation within the construction. The waterproof layer acts as a total vapour control layer and, being on the warm side of the insulation, is maintained above dew point temperature so the risk of condensation is minimised.
High load-bearing floor insulation:
Besides reducing the heat loss, proper insulation of floors helps to increase significantly the overall comfort, utilize more effectively the thermal storage capacity of the floor. The advantages of High load-bearing floor insulation includes low compression, reduction of thickness of load-distributing layer, long-term high insulation value.
- Insulation of pitched roofs
The use of Insulation boards offers various solutions for different pitched roof build-ups, both for new construction or renovation, also combined with other insulation materials placed between the rafters. The planned efficiency of thermal insulation in pitched roofs can be achieved when thermal bridges are prevented. There are several alternatives to create a properly functioning build-up with minimized thermal bridges by placing the insulation above/ below/between and below the rafters.
