Providing a modern, clean finished look, EXPOL-X is a vital part of creating a total envelope of thermal protection for a building’s concrete slab. EXPOL concrete floor edge insulation system is designed to include the ‘Z’ flashing, ensuring water tightness.
Specifiers looking for a product that offers excellent performance for a range of uses in diverse climate conditions turn to EXPOL-X. Often used in applications that are subject to pressure and moisture, EXPOL-X is a high performing extruded polystyrene insulation product.
EXPOL-X polystyrene insulation sheets sit vertically against the outside face of the concrete slab or foundation wall, creating a thermal barrier in an area that is often responsible for significant heat loss. Once boards are fixed in place, a layer of plaster over the top will finish the edge to create a clean look.
PERIMETER EDGE FLASHINGS
Use flashings in circumstances that would normally require cladding materials to overhand the foundation edge. EXPOL supply a ‘Z’ flashing product that has been specifically designed to ensure water tightness.
EXPOL supplies a water-based glue that adheres polystyrene to most surfaces. EXPOL-X cladding insulation is glued in place using this adhesive or can be used in combination with other fixing methods.
