Foilboard - Premium Foil Insulation

Foilboard® GREEN – Rigid Insulation Panel For Floors, Walls And Ceilings

It’s the rigid insulation panel for under your floors, in your walls, in your roof and even to line your man-caves & sheds.

Manufactured in Australia from a fire retardant expanded polystyrene core (FR-EPS) with pure aluminium foil directly laminated to both sides, creating a SUPERIOR INSULANT, THERMAL BREAK and NON-PERMEABLE MOISTURE BARRIER.

Foilboard® GREEN has been engineered and designed to ensure a quick and easy installation of a non-itchy, fibre free rigid insulation panel that will provide continuous thermal performance for the life of the building.

The Foilboard® Difference

Foilboard® Australia backs its Foilboard® GREEN with a 25 year performance guarantee.

Fully endorsed by Standards Australia,the Foilboard® GREEN rigid insulation panel is the premium insulation product in its market, both in manufactured quality and product performance and that is why it is backed by a 25 year performance guarantee.

This durable rigid panel is specifically designed to achieve exceptionally high thermal values, making it the ideal product. Unlike traditional bulk insulation and blankets, Foilboard® GREEN rigid panel will not shrink, sag or droop, ensuring that the building performs to its optimal thermal value from day one, to year 25 and beyond.

Did you know a 4% void in insulated BATTS as a result of sagging, improper installation or stapling can increase heat loss by 15-50%**

What is Foil Insulation?

Foil Insulation is an efficient and effective way to improve the thermal efficiency of a home, office or any other building. In essence, reflective foil insulation panels are designed to protect a space from getting too hot in summer and too cold in winter, helping to maintain balanced temperatures all year round.

How Does Foil Insulation Work?

Foil Insulation works by using the basic laws of heat and cold to its advantage in order to insulate a building. Once installed, reflective foil insulation panels create a barrier between the inside of a property and the external environment. In the case of a hot day, foil insulation panels will reflect heat back out and away from a building, preventing it from getting too hot.

Benefits of Foil Insulation

Foil Insulation provides a host of great benefits once installed in a space. Some of these benefits include:

  • Increased thermal efficiency, resulting in more pleasant and consistent temperatures all year round
  • A reduction in your impact toward the environment through a natural decrease in the use of heating and cooling units
  • A reduction in your energy bills, thanks to a lessening in the use of heating and cooling units
  • Increased levels of sound dampening within your property 

How to Install Foil Insulation Panels?

Depending upon which particular application your foil insulation panels are being used, the installation method may vary. There are many professionals that can fit insulation in your property for you, but If you would prefer to install our reflective foil insulation panels yourself, you can click here for specific installation guides.

Foilboard® GREEN rigid insulation panel is proudly available nationwide through a network of insulation providers, hardware & timber merchants, wholesale stockists and distributors.

Foilboard® and the Environment

Foil Insulation

Designed with sustainability in mind, Foilboard® Insulation Panel will last the life of the building. It is one of very few products on the market that creates a true thermal break, meaning the long term benefits of Foilboard® Insulation Panel far outweigh any other insulation material. The material's ability to create a more consistent ambient temperature means you are not reliant on inefficient artificial heating and cooling. This reduces energy use and the production of greenhouse gases creating a more sustainable future for all and saves you money.

There are no Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC's), nor are any CFC's used in the manufacture of the Expanded Polystyrene (EPS). The pure aluminium that is directly laminated to both sides of the Foilboard® Insulation Panel is also 100% recyclable.

Foilboard® GREEN rigid insulation panel ensures optimum performance by creating a thermal barrier around your building or home - reducing your energy consumption costs and carbon footprint making for a healthier, greener environment.

Designed, tested and manufactured in Australia for over 25 years, Foilboard® GREEN rigid insulation panel was the first panel of its kind in the Australian market.
