Below Grade Insulation
EPS can be used for below grade insulation which is for foundations and floors of structures. This method ensures the conserving of energy in both cold and warm climates. Changing climates have little effect on EPS physical properties, as it holds its R-value. EPS is able to withstand the abuse of temperature cycling, giving long-term performance. EPS is a closed cell rigid material that is lightweight and easy to handle. EPS insulation will not support the growth of bacteria or decay over time.
