A SHIELD AGAINST MOISTURE & ENERGY LOSS

Protect Your Foundations With A Shield of Insulation

Buildings today account for 1/3 of energy consumption and emissions. The floors and foundations of our structures are responsible for approximately 1/3 of this energy loss. This is easy to tackle with a shield of insulation in a variety of below grade, perimeter and under-slab applications.

  • R-Shield rigid insulation provides a stable long-term, warranted R-value  and meets strength requirements at a lower cost than other options

  • R-Shield EPS and MAX GPS insulation products are manufactured with a steam based (non-chemical) blowing agent with 10 x lower global warming potential and 10,000 x lower ozone depletion

  • R-Shield and XPS have resistance to moisture, but R-Shield has a higher vapor permeance leading to superior drying potential

  • Termite treatment available for all R-shield products to provide peace of mind

The true value is in the options. R-Shield is available standard as EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) grid insulation, PLUS with a factory laminated protective facer, or upgraded to GPS MAX insulation (Higher R-value Graphite).
