INSULATION

Insulation in a conventional roof lies under the protective membrane covering. Dow's conventional roof insulations and sealants provide long-term thermal performance, moisture resistance and can be reused.

Designed specifically for conventional roofing applications, Dow’s ultra-strong adhesives offer an alternative to metal fasteners with the added benefits of reduced thermal bridging and improved energy efficiency.

For flat roofs, they also offer solutions with a diminishing plane to create a gentle slope, significantly improving water drainage. Unlike an inverted roof, insulation is placed on top of the membrane, enabling a perfect foundation for a terrace, garden or green roof on the top of your building. An inverted roof assembly can lengthen the life of the roof, contribute to sustainability and provide long-term cost savings.

 Today’s modern structures must be energy efficient, safe, durable and aesthetically pleasing. These simultaneous requirements call for unique technologies and innovations. At Dow, they understand that solutions to these challenges can come from anywhere. That’s why they look beyond traditional construction concepts to bring inspired ideas to building and construction projects of all kinds. From modest homes to monumental skyscrapers, Dow develops solutions to help insulate, protect and enhance.

INSULATION

 High performance – cost efficient polyiso delivers the highest R-value per inch in cold temperatures making it the smartest investment you can make when insulating your building. At low temperatures competing polyiso boards require additional thickness to achieve the same R-value of Firestones polyiso. 


Firestone ISO 95+ GL™  insulation offers high-energy efficiency through the highest R-value ratings per inch versus other insulation materials. Compatible with all types of commercial roofing systems, the lightweight, easy-to-handle insulation is especially suited for direct application on FM approved and UL classified steel roof deck assemblies.  Standard flat Firestone ISO 95+ Insulation is available in board sizes of 4′ x 4′ and 4′ x 8′ and in thicknesses from 0.5″ to 4.5″ subject to availability. 


  When a substrate slope will not permit efficient drainage, Firestone tapered ISO 95+ polyiso insulation provides an effective and economical solution. Properly installed tapered ISO 95+ polyiso insulation can extend the life of the roof assembly by eliminating problems associated with ponded water. Firestone tapered ISO 95+ polyiso insulation is available in slopes from 1/16″ to 1/2″ per foot. Firestone provides a variety of technical support services for the installation of tapered insulation through the Estimating Services Department.

SUSTAINABILITY REPORT

HUNTER Panels

Detail your services

With energy consciousness and  climate change at the front and center of their environment priorities, the market share for Polyiso continues to grow. In response to that demand, Hunter Panels was founded in December of 1997 by a group of proactive, forward thinking, movers and shakers  who live and breathe  commercial insulation.  

Hunter Panels was the first  start-up company to enter the Polyiso industry since 1975, and they did so with a particular mission: to distinguish themselves as the proactive entrepreneurial manufacturer and a leader in the marketing of their polyiso product line. As a stand alone manufacturer, Hunter was able to focus on that singular  purpose. They brought together a team of industry professionals who know Polyiso inside and out and who care about being technically proficient and customer driven.
