Category Information

Insulating any property is an essential way of ensuring that the building is as energy efficient as possible. Polystyrene is a popular choice because it offers excellent thermal insulator properties whilst being resistant to moisture. Its rigid nature and being lightweight are both contributing factors, as they create an insulation that is easy to work with. Moreover, the boards are easy to cut, drill holes into and to install.

There are various places around your property where to use polystyrene insulation boards, including: 

  • Walls. Insulation Boards are ideal for walls because they are designed not to sag, unlike some other forms of insulator. This means that there is a reduced chance of cold spots in your walls.
