PIR Insulation

PIR, also known as polyisocyanurate, is one of the most popular types of insulation because it comes in easy-to-install boards. Thanks to their manufacture they're easy to work with and easy to cut so PIR insulation is a favourite in the insulation industry. High thermal performance is created by blending materials together using heat, which causes gases to be released and get trapped in cells within the board. This type of insulation means heat can't pass through readily. Depending on the manufacturer and the intended use of the PIR insulation board, some are faced with foil or a mineral glass coating. Foil facings are moisture resistant. 

PIR insulation is very efficient and there are products available now which give fantastic thermal conductivity from a very thin board. This greatly reduces how much build up you need, increasing floor space. PIR insulation boards don't sag over time or become flimsy which adds to the longevity and performance of these products. These boards also often boast fire resistant properties dependent again on the manufacturer.
