Perimeter, Below-Grade, & Underslab Insulation
With up to 50 percent of a building’s total heat loss occurring at the perimeter and slab of the foundation, below-grade insulation is crucial to achieving energy efficiency. Perimeter, Below-Grade, and Underslab EPS Insulation is a proven and effective method of conserving heat energy in cold climates and air conditioning energy in warm climates.
EPS’s high R-Value, termite resistance, protection against backfill and expansive soils makes it the preferred below-grade insulation among contractors, architects and homeowners.
Types of Perimeter, Below-Grade & Underslab Insulation
Foam-Control PLUS+® Radiant Floor Board: An unfaced architectural insulation product line with high compressive strength and R-value. Available with designs for 3/8" to 1" PEX tubing or as flat sheets.
