The Tdeck® EPS Panel System provides excellent insulation properties with ‘U’ values of 0.20 W/m2K being achievable, dependant on floor area and the exposed perimeter of the dwelling.
Because the design of the EPS infill panels minimizes cold bridging at the floor beam the theoretical design performance is delivered in practice. The very low U values obtained with this system will assist in meeting the more stringent thermal requirements of the proposed new Building Regulations. Unlike some other insulation materials the thermal performance of EPS does not degrade over its lifetime.

Expanded polystyrene is non-irritant, non-toxic, and resistant to attack from bacteria, rodents and fungus.
The EPS panels are manufactured without the use of CFC’s or HCFC’s which could contribute to the erosion of the ozone layer. The high level of insulation provided by the EPS insulation panels makes a positive contribution to the reduction in CO2 emissions to the atmosphere by reducing the amount of fossil fuel required to heat the dwelling.
The energy used in the production of the EPS (embodied energy) is saved many times over throughout the life of the building in which it is installed. Initial recovery is thought to be within the first occupancy of the building, 15 years.
