How to insulate your home for many years to come

PIR panels are the latest addition to our range of well-established and popular thermal insulation materials, which include mineral wool and EPS (expanded polystyrene). The three form an essential group of thermal insulating materials, where our PIR panels, with their excellent thermal insulation performance, are superior to both the mineral wool and EPS.

However, the Thermano PIR panels have a number of other advantages, making them unparalleled in the thermal insulation sector. One of these advantages is their universal use.

In the general overview of plastics, polyurethanes are considered to one of those materials with the most versatile properties, while in the group of rigid foam thermal insulation materials for construction applications, PUR and PIR foams offer the widest opportunities for practical application.

Thanks to their superior thermal insulation performance, the standard applications for PIR panels include: Pitched roofs (with over-rafter, between-rafter and under-rafter installation), flat roofs (both new and refurbished), energy-efficient and passive buildings, cavity walls, floors with integrated heating systems, ground slabs and overground floors, terraces on floor slabs over heated rooms, balconies, „green roofs” and „inverted roofs”, parking lots on floor slabs over heated rooms, „AGRO” type livestock and farm buildings and much more.

Thermano PIR panels form the best all-rounder solutions for home thermal insulation and improvement projects, from top to bottom. Thermano can be installed easily, and performs well anywhere in a building (see the video here).


A good example of the benefits of choosing a good thermal insulation solution is a housing project developed in the Pomerania region of Poland. A single-family house with a usable floor area of 350 m2 was in 2014 thermally improved with over-rafter, 100 mm-thick Thermano panels. The house featured natural-gas space heating with heat recovery. According to the testimony of the owner, the annual heating costs are now around 3100 PLN. It is easy to imagine how low the heat demands would be if the owner decided to install Thermano panels not just on the roof, but in the floors and walls.

One example of a full thermal insulation application is a single-family house built near Wrocław, Poland. The primary objective of this project was to achieve the lowest heat demand possible.
