Perimeter insulation

Perimeter insulation refers to the insulation of building elements that are in contact with the ground. This is a particularly challenging application because the insulating material is exposed to high levels of moisture and pressure. Moreover, when thermal insulation is used over seals, it must permanently fulfil its function insulating role to prevent the occurrence of thermal bridges. XPS meets these challenges because it is:

  • Compression proof.
  • Dimensionally stable.
  • Moisture and rot resistant.
