XPS - POOL Insulation
XPS boards have excellent life-long thermal performance and very low water absorption, allowing them to be installed below the concrete slab or behind retaining walls without the need for a damp proof membrane (DPM).
For projects that require insulation products to have a global warming potential of less than 5, we can offer CO2 blown XPS ECO which is Code for Sustainable Homes Pol 1 compliant.
• Very high compressive strength able to withstand
long-term static loads
• Excellent life long thermal performance
• Reduces heating bills and keeps the pool warmer for longer
• Very low water absorption (<0.7% after 28 days)
• Code for Sustainable Homes compliant option
XPS Thermal Boarding is an extruded polystyrene closed cell board (XPS). The boards 1250 x 600 x 80mm will enable you to obtain minimal heat loss through the walls and floor of the pool ( U-Value of 0.25 W/M2K).
Simple to install, the XPS system can save you ££££’s on various energy costs.
Important: Do not be tempted to use cheaper alternative under floor insulation such as EPS, Jablite, Polyurethane, Polystyrene or similar products as these absorb water and will have an adverse effect on retaining heat in your pool!
Each pack contains 5 no. 1250 x 600 x 800mm boards (3.75m2)
Each board = 0.75 sq.m2
1500-V XPS Thermal Board Pack (5) £140.00 (£28.00 per board)
