Rigid Board Insulation is the most popular type of insulation currently available. Primarily used on the roofs, walls and floors of domestic housing, offices, retail, industrial, warehousing facilities and educational premisses, to name but a few.
These boards are commonly manufactured using a solid foam core derived from Phenolic, PIR, Extruded Polystyrene or Expanded Polystyrene.
Phenolic Foam and PIR Boars commonly have aluminium foil or glass tissue facings. Some boards are bonded to other materials, such as Plasterboard or Plywood. Polystyrene boards outer facings are sealed during the manufacturing process, resulting in a robust resistance to water or vapour ingress.
A brief review of the various Rigid Insulation Boards is listed below.

Unfortunately, further raw material shortages as of the beginning of May 2017 are affecting lead times and availability of PIR insulation from all manufactures – Celotex, Ecotherm, Kingspan and Recticel.
Manufacturers are providing limited stock on an allocation basis to our suppliers and depots. We will endeavour to source the required stock, however, we may need to mix and match equivalent products from multiple manufactures, suppliers and depots. This may affect the rates; we will of course discuss possible solutions with you before proceeding and will do our best to keep additional costs down.
Specialised insulation boards will be affected more than general application boards, so please allow additional time to process and deliver these orders.
We have also been notified of further price increases due to take affect in September and October. With the raw material shortage issue and the increased demand as we get closer to the increase dates, please allow as much time as possible to order PIR insulation. Any orders taken that are not able to be delivered until after the increase dates will be charged at post increase prices.
Expect, amongst others, the following PIR Insulation price increases …
October 16, 2017 – Celotex – 13.5% to 17.5%
October 16, 2017 – Kingspan – 9% to 12%
October 16, 2017 – Ecotherm – 12% to 14%
October 1, 2017 – Recticel – 10% to 20%
