FAQs for Insulation Boards

What are insulation boards and what are their main benefits?

Insulation boards are rigid substrate panels made from various insulating materials, such as foam plastics, polystyrene or mineral wool. They're designed to improve the thermal efficiency of buildings by reducing heat loss and energy consumption.

Installing rigid insulation boards can result in lower energy bills, increased comfort and reduced environmental impact through decreased carbon emissions. Insulation foam board can be installed in homes and under commercial flooring to help reduce noise pollution and improve thermal performance. Constructed from rigid material and manufactured into sheets, rigid insulation board is available in a range of different materials.

What types of insulation boards do you offer?

We offer a wide range of insulation boards made from different materials, with insulation properties suitable for various applications, including:

• Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) boards
• Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) boards
• PIR insulation board (polyisocyanurate)

Each type of floor insulation board has its unique properties and benefits, so it's essential to choose the right one for your specific project requirements.

How do I choose the right insulation board for my needs?

When selecting rigid insulation board, consider factors such as the desired thermal conductivity performance, the location and type of installation and budget. It's also essential to choose the appropriate rigid foam board size and thickness to achieve the required insulation levels, and note that some products are not suitable to be installed below timber floors.

Can I install rigid panel insulation boards myself, or do I need a professional?

While some insulation boards can be installed by a knowledgeable DIY enthusiast, we recommend consulting with a qualified professional to ensure proper installation, compliance with local regulations, and optimal performance.

Installing insulation board improperly can lead to reduced insulation effectiveness and potential issues with moisture or condensation.

How do I maintain insulation boards?

Insulation boards typically require minimal maintenance once they are correctly installed. However, it's essential to periodically check for any signs of damage, dampness, or pest infestation and address these issues promptly to maintain the boards' effectiveness.

Are insulation boards safe to use with underfloor heating systems?

Yes, insulation boards are compatible with most underfloor heating systems when installed correctly. They can enhance the efficiency of your heating system by reducing heat loss through the floor. Always follow the manufacturer's guidelines and consult with a professional installer to ensure compatibility and proper installation.

What is the lifespan of insulation boards?

When installed and maintained correctly, insulation boards can last for several decades. The lifespan of insulation boards can be affected by factors such as the type of material used, the quality of installation, and the environmental conditions in which they are installed.

How do I determine the appropriate thickness for my thermal insulation board?

The required thickness for your insulation board depends on factors such as the desired thermal performance and the specific building regulations that may apply to your project. Consult a qualified professional to determine the appropriate thickness of rigid insulation boards for your specific needs.
