Create a significant reduction in the energy needed to heat or cool your home by applying Foamular Extruded Polystyrene Insulation Sheets to your external walls.

Foamular Extruded Polystyrene commonly known as XPS is an ideal energy efficient substrate for EIFS, especially with render finishes. EIFS is an Exterior Insulation and Finish System that consists of an insulation board attached either adhesively or mechanically, or both, to the substrate. Foamular XPS sheets are lightweight and can be screw fixed directly onto studs or masonry and then finished with a Polymer Modified render system.

Foamular minimises thermal bridging, literally wrapping your home in insulation. Foamular has high ‘R’ Values (50mm=R1.78) which is guaranteed not to drop below 90% of the original value for 20 years. The modern clean look of Render will enhance the look of your home, while reducing the cost of keeping your home at a comfortable temperature with Foamulars R-value.

Foamular is very versatile insulation and can be used over waterproofing membrane on concrete roofs, under Green Roof growing medium, insulating floors and roofs, and has applications for cold storage facilities. Foamular is suited to all types of developments from new homes, renovations, low and high rise developments. For more information or click here and we will contact you.
