Insulating a flat roof...

Improved thermal efficiency has positive effects on the environment through reduced energy usage.  There are different options with their own benefits depending on the roof type you are constructing.

PIR Insulation is highly efficient and the reduced thickness compared to other insulants is a benefit to the construction industry and ensures it is now a mainstay element for many buildings.  BauderPIR can be specified with foil-facing for additional thermal gain, glass tissue faced and tapered for improved falls on a roof.  Used within a Bauder waterproofing system our products meet current UK Building Regulations Part B for fire protection.

A relatively new insulant available is a vacuum insulation panel with exceptional insulating properties which are a result of its high performance silica core that is encased by multi-layer composite aluminium foil.  The BauderVIP panel is protected by a rubber crumb mat bonded to the underside and a PIR board on the upper surface.  These two elements prevent mechanical damage to the vacuum core, which would otherwise compromise the integrity and therefore the efficiency of the panel.
