Because of its superior thermal performance PIR insulation offers optimal insulation value meaning a thinner layer will achieve the same insulation properties. This makes it easy to reach, or exceed, the thermal performance standards required by building regulations and building codes in the UK.
As well as being one of the most thermally efficient insulation materials available, PIR insulation has a high strength to weight ratio, is lightweight and easy to handle and meets a variety of fire performance criteria for differing applications.
PIR also has excellent water resistance properties, making it suitable for use in flood risk areas.
With such all round performance characteristics this makes PIR the product of choice for a wide range of new build and refurbishment projects.
