New at The Concrete Store: GreenGuard Insulation Board

Perfect for meeting your needs for multiple applications, increase the energy efficiency of your structures with this easy to work with insulation board now offered by The Concrete Store.

The GreenGuard Polystyrene (XPS) Type IV or Type X Insulation Board is extremely moisture resistant and is ideal to use as an exterior insulator for cavity walls, below slabs, as a stud wall continuous insulation, or a foundation.

 

Cavity Walls

Did you know that 90% of homes in the United States are underinsulated?  With an R-value of 5.0 per inch of thickness, consider adding GreenGuard XPS Insulation Board to the cavity wall of your project.  This board provides a thermal break over steel studs.  The boards can also snap into 16”, 24”, and 32” widths for a perfect fit between brick ties in block-backed cavity walls.

 

Below Slabs

Below slab application of this product can be used for normal loading situations and is also ideal for radiant flooring.  Specific loading requirements can be provided by a Concrete Store representative.

 

Continuous Insulation

Improve the energy efficiency by insulating the entire wall and reduce thermal shorts through the studs in the wall by creating a layer of continuous insulation.  GreenGuard XPS Insulation Board also creates a barrier to prevent moisture from penetrating the wall exterior.

 

Foundations

Ever thought of insulating your foundation walls?  Insulate and control moisture from entering the basement.  An additional benefit is that this product will also help prevent the waterproofing membrane from getting damaged during the backfilling process.
