Highly Durable

PIR insulation is a remarkably durable insulation material. It resists mould and microbial growth, nor will it rot, sag or decay. This means you won’t need to replace it.

Moreover, it maintains a long-term thermal performance at a low cost. This also reduces CO2 emissions and is therefore highly efficient. Those who use this insulation require double the thickness of traditional insulation materials to meet the same thermal performance.

Fire Regulation Compliant

One of the most important advantages of PIR insulation is that it complies with a range of fire regulations. It meets Class B regulations and slows the spread of flames.

In addition to this, there are PIR products that are available which can achieve approval with insurance industry standards.

Moisture Resistant

PIR panels are highly moisture resistant. With a low water absorption of less than 2%, this insulation can retain its original weight and value.

Pressure Resistant

If you are installing PIR insulation on a flat roof, you will be happy to know that these boards will always retain their shape when being walked on. Once they have been installed, maintenance personnel can access the roof with no problems.
