Do the benefits of multifoil insulation outweigh those of PIR?

Do the benefits of multifoil insulation outweigh those of PIR? Polyisocyanurate (otherwise known as PIR) is commonly used in construction projects. But the question is, how long will this continue?

The price of PIR has risen, owed to one of its components (MDI) being increasingly hard to get hold of and the limited supply which has in turn impacted the manufacturing cost and thus, the sale price of PIR.

This has led many people to ask:

“Is there a cheaper alternative to PIR / Kingspan / Celotex”

…along with the ongoing query:

“Is there an insulation material that is easier to install than PIR?”

The answer is yes – Multi Foil Insulation Products.  All products can be viewed HERE

Many people have already massively benefited financially and practically by opting to use the PIR substitute, that is Multifoil Insulation products. As this addresses the two issues of the ever-increasing prices of PIR and the extremely tedious fitting process.

The overarching view is that PIR such as Celotex / Kingspan are greatly difficult to cut and install. Installers deem the fitting process as a tedious job specifying it is difficult to cut, it is messy owed to the dust and often large parts of the boards end up in the skip!

On the other hand, installers who have used Multifoils view the process as easy, owed to the durability of the product – others refer to the fitting process of multifoils as appealing.

Given the above, if  you are looking to complete a new build / a refurbishment / looking to insulate anywhere, you have come to the right place as Ecohome Insulation have a solution to suit your specific requirements. We specialise in delivering high performance discounted reflective Multifoil Insulation throughout the UK & Europe for every application.
