Recticel Insulation - Specifying a Flat Roof with PIR Insulation
Specifying a Flat Roof with PIR Insulation
A warm flat roof represents one of the simplest forms of construction, and therefore one of the best ways of achieving the fabric-first principle, with reliable performance for the lifetime of the waterproofing membrane. Unfortunately, on-site constraints or confusion about the correct construction can lead to compromises in a roof’s design and construction. These compromises can store up problems that may not be seen for several decades, but which can lead to worse-than-expected levels of thermal performance or a shortening of the roof’s active life. This CPD article aims to demystify some common issues surrounding flat roofs, drawing on specialist knowledge in producing flat roof insulation.

Recticel Insulation manufactures quality, high performance rigid polyisocyanurate (PIR) foam boards that offer whole-building solutions for new build, extension and refurbishment projects. These products are backed by a high level of technical service, including BBA Competency Scheme-assessed U-value calculations and RIBA-assessed CPD materials. Talk to Recticel and discover how to achieve the best results and improve the thermal comfort of your building project.
