There is a material which helps maintain our buildings warm in the winter and cool in the summer; from stadiums to hospitals, from cold stores to residential houses, from floor to ceiling, it can be found everywhere. And in our battle against climate change, it is one of our most important weapons! Nowadays, PIR thermal insulation is the most efficient generally used insulation material. It is light, easy to manage and install, and its low thermal conductivity property means that, in comparison with other insulation materials, a much thinner layer of it is sufficient to achieve the same energy efficiency. PIR is extremely versatile, applicable almost everywhere, as thermal insulation of roofs, terraces, floors and window frames, or even as retrofit insulation for residential houses.


In Europe, approx. 40% of all energy is consumed in buildings. More than 60% of this energy is used for heating or cooling our buildings. One of the cornerstones of complying to stricter energy consumption regulations is a well-chosen insulation material. To reduce energy consumption and subsequently to fight climate change, the good thermal insulation of buildings is one of our easiest and obviously our most important task. PIR is one of the most efficient insulation materials available, which provides a high efficiency thermal insulation with minimal thickness, because of its lambda value – indicating its thermal conductivity – is 0,022W/mK. Therefore the same insulating performance (U-value) can be achieved with substantially less thickness, or with the same thickness at least 20% more heating-cooling energy can be saved, in comparison with other types of generally used insulation materials. PIR insulation materials have a key role in reducing the energy demand of 3% of buildings with 80% each year.


Some aspects are essential to consider when choosing the suitable material for the insulation of a house. The first one is the thickness of the thermal insulation, since everybody strives to make the best use of the space available. That’s exactly why it is in one’s own interest to choose PIR, since, in comparison with competing products, the same thermal efficiency can be achieved with minimal thickness when using this material. The second aspect is connected to the expenses of insulation. It is suggested to take into account this factor as well, after all, if we opt for a PIR thermal insulation system at the construction of a family house, then at the same time we can benefit from a decrease (not only in costs, thanks to the space saved) but also in the total cost of heating.


Anyone building a house or renovating one is faced with problems: Which material is worth installing and where? What is the best choice for the insulation of the floor, ceiling, roof or window frame? As a response to all our questions, the answer is evident: PIR!  Whether it is a pitched or flat roof, this one-of-a-kind material is the solution in both cases. It offers optimal protection for both cold and heat. It is easier and faster to use than other products, and it is a particularly lightweight insulation material. Our two available board sizes make its installing easier, but custom board sizes are also possible to produce.


When it comes to insulation, our motto is durability. The PIR thermal insulation material is a hydrophobic closed cell foam structure, meaning that it is unable to absorb moisture. This property ensures the preservation of the efficiency of InnoPan PIR products, since water is shown to damage the qualities of an insulation material. Therefore the material does not shrink, providing a reliable solution for us and our buildings. Our thermal insulation panels are available with rabbet edge finishing, which eliminates further damage caused by water penetration.


The answer to this question is very simple. We, the InnoPan team, constantly work towards creating the best quality material possible and delivering it to our customers in the shortest possible time. Our production line, unique in all Europe, and professional competence both serve this purpose. We have worked on the thermal insulation of condominiums, industrial halls and family houses throughout the whole country. Our expert colleagues are available for helping our customers with slope formation calculations and on-site professional advice. Among rigid foams, PIR is one of the best materials with thermal insulation properties and maintains this property for decades. It is also anti-allergenic, resistant to mold and moisture. These are the qualities that set PIR apart from other insulation materials and the reasons why we believe that PIR is the insulation material of the future.
