Below Grade Insulation

EPS insulation has proven itself the perfect insulation for use in below grade applications. Foundation and floors below grade, EPS is an efficient method of conserving heat energy in cold climates and air condition energy in warm climates.
UP to 50% of a building’s total heat loss occurs at the perimeter and slab of the foundation. Below grade EPS insulation is a proven and an effective method of conserving heat energy.
EPS holds it’s R-value and has little to no effect on its physical properties in the changing climates. EPS is able to withstand the abuse of temperature cycling, giving long term performance. It is a light weight, easy to handle, rigid thermal insulation. It is closed cell rigid material. EPS insulation will not support the growth of bacteria or decay over time.
Insultech EPS products are environmentally friendly in that they are 100% recyclable, contain no HCFC’s or formaldehyde and contribute toward LEED credit requirements.

EPS in Foundations Pass the Test

Two different and completely independent studies were conducted in Canada and found that EPS as exterior foundation insulation is extremely durable and withstands all the temperature cycling. See the technical bulletin EPSMA Link
