Best Roof Insulation Materials in Kenya

PE Roof Insulation in Kenya

Cost of PE roof insulation ranges from KSh 280 to KSh 500 per square Metre depending on thickness and quantity. Gypsum Ceiling Supplies quality roof insulation materials in Kenya. Buy our PE roof insulation online which comes in the thickness of 3mm, 5mm and 10mm. PE roof insulation is widely used insulation material in the World. The foil insulation coating on both sides wraps the foam, which has the advantages of reflecting and insulation heat, reducing noise and waterproof

What is PE Roof Insulation?

PE Roof insulation is an excellent thermal barrier composed of closed cell PE foam core with high grade aluminium foil. The aluminum foil acts as a reflective barrier with up to 97% of radiant heat reflected back. PE foam has the function of trapping air so as to stop convection heat, thus reducing heat loss or heat gain within an environment. This provides comfort and increases productivity within the working space or home in both cold and hot seasons.

The air energy of PE roof insulation cannot only insulate most of the heat in hot seasons, but also reducing the loss of indoor heat and the invasion of external cold air in cold seasons. It can be said that it is a product that can play the role of temperature regulation under any weather conditions.

Why Choose PE Roof Insulation?

PE roof insulation is a perfect sound insulation material for workshops and other large scale buildings in rainy season. Using our products can greatly reduce the noise caused by rain and wind and provide a conducive environment for you

PE roof insulation is different from other products in the market, the width of 1.8 metres brings more than twice the convenience for your construction. The advanced and sophisticated equipment used in the manufacturing of PE roof insulation guarantees quality you can trust

Advantages of PE Roof Insulation

Energy Efficient – Provides excellent thermal insulation therefore reducing energy cost used in heating and cooling

Fire Resistant – PE foam is self extinguishing. Does not easily cash fire and will not encourage fire when fire hazards happen

Noise Reduction – PE foam provides good acoustic properties such as reducing rain noise

Safe to Handle – Does not contain synthetic fibre or any chemical harmful to human

Long Life – Does not delaminate or break with time therefore maintaining thermal properties over time

Waterproof – Excellent moisture barrier reducing damage to structure from condensation

Environmental Friendly – 100% recyclable

PE ROOF INSULATION – PHYSICAL PROPERTIES

10mm PE Roof Insulation

PE roof Insulation protects your roof space from heat build-up due to radiant heat penetration by acting as a heat barrier to protect all services within the roof space from drying out, cracking and degradation due to UV and solar heat gain.

PE Roof Insulation It is a cost-effective insulation that is suitable for use in metal deck roofing system in residential, commercial, industrial and horticultural buildings where temperature variations are moderately/relatively high and where there is a need to reduce the disturbing rain noise.

  •  Effective thermal insulation; It has an R- Value of 27.40ft².F.h/Btu; RSi of 4.83m²K/W.
  •  Effective barrier against impact noise with a 28db contact noise reduction.
  •  Fire retardant.
  •  Is an effective moisture barrier.
  •  Maintains its thermal insulating properties over time as it does not collapse.
  •  It seals around fasteners ensuring no leakages into the building from the roof.

5mm PE Roof Insulation

  • Polyethylene Roof Insulation is double-sided reflective foil insulation, with a 5mm thick polyethylene foam core, that provides a radiant barrier, reflective insulation and a moisture barrier. It protects your roof space from heat build-up due to radiant heat penetration by acting as a heat barrier to protect all services within the roof space from drying out, cracking and degradation due to UV and solar heat gain.
  • It is a cost-effective insulation that is suitable for use in metal deck roofing system in residential, commercial, industrial and horticultural buildings where temperature variations are moderately/relatively high and where there is a need to reduce the disturbing rain noise.

Frequently Asked Questions

Temperature

Averagely a temperature drops of 7°C is easily achieved

What is the percentage energy savings attained by using the PE roof insulation?

A reduction of 30% – 40% on energy cost is achieved where Air Conditioning units are in   use.

Does PE Roof Insulation reduce rain noise?

Yes. It reduces contact noise (e.g. rain noise) by about 19dbs especially the 10mm thick

Does Polyethylene roof insulation collapse with time?

It does not collapse with time; it maintains its structure/form over time.

How does Polyethylene Roof Insulation work?

It reflects the solar radiant heat and blocks heat transfer through conduction and convection.

Can nails or screws piercing through the Insulation damage it?

It seals around nails once pierced through.

Can the Insulation be laid directly on the Roof purlins?

It is laid on the purlins and given a small sag.

What is the standard thickness/size of PE Roof Insulation?

PE Roof Insulation is available in 3 different thicknesses depending on your application.

What is the lifespan of Polyethylene roof insulation?

It is long lasting and lasts at least forty years.

Does the reflective film delaminate or peel off?

PE Roof Insulation does not delaminate or peel off with time.

Can Polyethylene Roof Insulation be installed on an existing roof?

Yes, it can.  The insulation is laid below the purlins and supported by galvanized GI wire strainer wires or galvanized mild steel plates. An overlap of about 100mm is recommended while installing.

What thickness of insulation is needed?

This depends very much on the height of the roof from the floor and the operational temperature of the area to be insulated. In addition, the insulation effect increases with the thickness of the product.

How is your product better than alternates in Kenya?

Product quality, service and technical back-up have ensured that PE roof Insulation remains one of the brand leaders in the insulation field. We maintain a strict protocol that ensures that all product manufactured meet the laid down specifications for each grade.
