Ursa Pitched Roof

Pitched roofs

In contrast to thermal insulation between rafters, pitched roofs feature an over-rafter insulation system. Insulation boards are laid on a formwork over the rafters. This has the advantage that very large thicknesses of insulation can be achieved in this way (over-rafter insulation plus full-fill rafter insulation), while creating space underneath. XPS is ideal for pitched roof insulation applications as a result of its:

  • Excellent water and water vapour resistance.
  • Superior dimensional stability.
  • Exceptional load capacity.
