Have you considered XPS as an affordable and effective alternative for residential floor insulation as opposed to traditional PIR products?
Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) offers a cost-effective alternative to PIR products where escalating raw material prices and potential availability issues are beginning to impact the market.
Earlier this year, Ravago Building Solutions, a European manufacturer of XPS insulation, launched Ravatherm XPS X 200 SB, a high-performance thermal insulation board, which is specifically designed for the residential market.
Robust and durable, Ravatherm XPS X 200 SB can endure foot traffic on-site. Capable of withstanding 200 kPa, the boards meet all requirements regarding compressive loads in the domestic/residential market.
Ravatherm XPS X 200 SB products offer exceptional thermal performance. The 50mm boards have a declared lambda of 0.030 W/mK, and the 75, 100, and 125mm thicknesses achieve 0.031 W/mK.
With low water absorption, Ravatherm XPS X 200 SB has a natural resistance to rain, frost, snow, and water vapour, making it an ideal choice of product for residential flooring applications.
Steel grey in colour and with a butt edge finish, Ravatherm XPS X 200 SB boards can be cut easily and accurately using hand tools, offering simple and quick installation with minimal waste. These lightweight boards can easily be positioned on-site for installation below the slab or below the floor screed, as well as in beam and block floors.
Manufactured at Ravago’s UK plant in King’s Lynn, Norfolk, Ravatherm XPS X 200 SB has a lead-time of just three to four days from order to delivery. Ravatherm XPS X 200 SB can be supplied in individual packs or a 15m3 bulk unit (2.95 × 2.5 × 2.4m) on foam bearers. Bulk units can be broken down on-site into four pre-wrapped units or split into individual packs, offering a variety of easy ways to transport material around a busy construction site.
