Ravatherm XPS X is the new brand for market-leading roof and floor insulation with a 60-year heritage

Ravago Building Solutions, Europe’s largest extruded polystyrene insulation (XPS) manufacturer, has relaunched its market-leading range of XPS. Ravatherm XPS X is the new name for the UK’s best-performing range of grey boards for roofs and floors, all with exceptional lambda values.

With a strong heritage and UK manufacturing stretching back 60 years, Ravatherm XPS X offers architects and building specifiers a wide range of thicknesses and compressive strengths which ensures that the most creative of design specifications can be met.

Ravatherm XPS X is moisture resistant and is blown with CO2, achieving a global warming potential score of less than five. Products in the roofing range were the first to secure a coveted Green Guide rating of A+ from BREEAM.  To further minimise environmental impacts and shipping delays, manufacturing takes place locally in King’s Lynn, Norfolk.

Chris Gimson, Commercial Director – UK, Ireland, Nordics and Baltics at Ravago Building Solutions, said: “Ravatherm XPS X leads the market, with its grey products having been used in the UK’s most energy efficient residential and commercial buildings. Ravatherm XPS X is first choice for architects and specifiers looking to deliver the most environmentally-sound buildings, while at the same time pushing design boundaries.”
