Wall and Underfloor insulation are essential with polystyrene foam-cut sheets preventing airflow and heat loss or intrusion. These polystyrene panels are designed for fitting under timber floors where there is access under your house or polystyrene sheets are ideal for external wall insulation (wall cladding). The polystyrene (styrofoam) comes in SL, Standard Grade and H, Hard Grade.
WA Polystyrene is a leading supplier of EPS foam block, cut sheet and insulation boards. Where a high level of insulation is required, EPS foam provides a cost-effective and energy efficient solution. We custom cut sheets to size to suit customer requirements. As an insulation medium, sheets can be applied to roof, walls and sub-floor systems or commonly used as sandwich construction with external cladding materials. EPS foam sheets exhibit excellent compressive strength and dimensional stability with a high strength-to-weight ratio.
The polystyrene panels prevent the passage of air through the floor to outside, and cold air from entering directly through the floor. In addition, their main benefit is as a thermal barrier to prevent the convection/movement of heat energy into and out of the house through the floor. The polystyrene stabilises the internal temperature of your home and saves on energy bills.
Polystyrene (EPS) insulation is a practical, economic and efficient solution and can be applied to all areas of building construction – Insulation sheets can be used for steel stud, timber stud, including concrete and masonry buildings as cavity wall insulation. Efficient insulation will keep a building cool in summer reflecting heat and warm in winter by retaining heat. This not only makes the structure more comfortable all year round but will save money on reduced heating and cooling costs.
We supply high-quality polystyrene panels which deliver a unique energy efficient rendered cladding system for existing houses as well as new building developments.
Insulated sheets are rendered with decorative protective finishes for exterior walls and can be installed on any type of construction. Designers have a choice in the selection of colours, shapes, textures that can replicate any contemporary style.
