Insulation board 50mm is one of the most used PIR boards in residential buildings. There are various types of insulation sheets, each designed to fulfil a different goal or space.
Insulation board 50mm is essential for comfort, reducing heating/cooling costs, and acoustic integrity. Did you know there are different types of PIR insulation boards (insulation sheets) to fit every circumstance? It’s essential to understand the differences before choosing what you need for your next project.
PIR stands for polyisocyanurate, the material produced as a foam and used in PIR insulation. These insulation boards are the leading choice because they conserve 80 times more energy than other forms of insulation.
PIR is both lightweight and tough, making it easy to install but durable enough to withstand the test of time. They are not affected by air filtration and are resistant to the passage of vapour. PIR insulation boards never put the installers or those living in the home at risk.
General application PIR boards (also known as general-purpose PIR boards) are designed for application on floors, walls, and roofs, allowing for a wide range of thermal insulation solutions. These boards work perfectly for pitched roofs, concrete slab ground floors, and outer wall linings and sheathings. General-purpose PIR insulation is perfect when you need to optimize space during construction, and they lower heating and cooling costs.
The General Purpose (GP) PIR insulation board of Recticel, Ecotherm, Celotex, IKO and Xtratherm is lightweight, easy to cut, handle and install. Whether it’s a roof, wall or floor, a General Purpose PIR insulation board is the ideal solution amongst contractors and installers. The General Purpose PIR foil board insulation offers a Lambda value of 0.022 Watts per mK.
