- Roof Insulation
Under Roof Tile Insulation
EPS panels can be fitted aginst the roof battens under the roof tiles for added thermal and acoustic insulation
Flat roof insulation
EPS panels can be fitted above the waterproofing membrane for added thermal and acoustic insulation.
Ceiling InsulationProducts Advantages:
The Ceiling/Roof Insulation system can consist of rigid variable width tiles, friction fitted between bottom of rafters above the horizontal ceiling. The system can accommodate variability in rafter spacing and tiles are available in different thickness dependent on the insulation intervention specified. Polystyrene ceiling insulation tiles can be retro fitted after the ceiling has been installed.
EPS is an effective thermal insulator. EPS consists of 98% air and has long been used as a thermal insulator. EPS ceiling and roofing insulation comes in lightweight panels which can be cut to create a snug fit between the ceiling trusses.

Polystyrene RoofingProducts Advantages:
What can be easier?
Assemble your normal roof support structure. Purlin spacing can now be as big as 1750mm.
Place your Roof/Insulation/Ceiling sheet over purlins. Fix with Tek Screws (bonded washers required), into roof support and job complete
Light weight, durable and easy to install.
Cornices are an excellent tool to help to hide small defects at corners and join materials of different thickness as well as adding architectural interest. Polystyrene cornices are simple to install leaving a modern professional finish to a building or renovation project.
Made of high density moulded polystyrene, these mouldings are extremely durable and will not chip if dropped. Cuts and dents can be filled with utility adhesive reducing waste significantly.
Resistant to humidity
Polystyrene cornices are resistant to water and humidity making them an excellent choice for bathrooms and humid areas.
While direct heat placed too close to mouldings can damage them, the larger profiles can be used to conceal low voltage fluorescent lighting with a clearance of approximately 5cm.
Polystyrene moulded cornices are cost effective, more durable and labour saving when compared to other product.
It is important to note that although it is heat resistant, direct heat too close to the polystyrene cornices and mouldings, can cause damage. Polystyrene cornices have become the preferred alternative to the plaster products which are heavy, can break easily if mishandled, labour intensive to install and of course are not waterproof so will damage if any moisture gets to the products.
The benefits of using polystyrene cornices:
- Easy to install with a cornice adhesive
- Versatile and can be used with most types of ceiling structures
- Lightweight and durable
- Resistant to heat and moisture
- Void Formers
Void Formers are extensively used to reduce the dead-weight of a variety of structures, including precast flooring beams and motorway bridges. By reducing the lateral forces a simpler foundation design is possible.
Airpacks Void Formers are used during road embankment construction to reduce pressure on soil and are a cost effective solution for piled construction when traditional embankments are too heavy. The lightweight properties of EPS will provide the required load bearing foundations without causing settlement.
- Pipe Lagging
EPS is a cost-effective, durable, and energy efficient solution for pipe insulation applications in the service range of temperatures from -100oF to 165oF. EPS is available in standard and custom cut fabricated profiles to meet your pipe insulation project needs. EPS pipe insulation assists with process control, energy conservation, and personal/equipment protection.
- Low k-factors for your insulation needs
- Lightweight with high strength
- No long-term R-value loss or thermal drift
- No CFC, HCFC, HFC, or formaldehyde
- Easy to fabricate
- Superior moisture resistance
Cost effective thermal design is among the highest priorities for pipe insulation. Foam-Control EPS pipe insulation is available in a range of densities necessary to provide energy efficiency, structural integrity, cost effectiveness, and is proven too.
