At Panel Systems, we offer a range of summer house floor and wall insulation solutions which enhance energy efficiency and overall thermal performance.

Here you can find out more about our range of insulation boards for walls, roofs and floors suitable for summer houses and garden rooms.

Insulation boards for summer houses

Styrofloor is our insulation solution for flooring in summer houses and garden rooms. This material consists of a P5 moisture-resistant chipboard and Ravatherm XPS (extruded polystyrene), ensuring durability and resilience against humidity. P5 grade chipboard is designed for flooring applications and humid environments.

Styrofloor eliminates the need for vapour control floors in the construction of summer houses.

This insulated flooring solution provides a finished floor surface, streamlining the construction process by eliminating the need for a final screed. With exceptional compressive strength, Styrofloor offers a reliable flooring option for not only summer houses but also garden rooms and conservatories.

Styrofloor is compatible with various floor coverings such as tiles, carpet and laminate, ensuring a simple installation.

Roof and wall insulation solutions for summer houses and garden rooms

Ravatherm XPS Summer House Insulation (extruded polystyrene) insulation sheets are an ideal choice for improving the thermal performance of the walls and roof space of summer houses and garden rooms. This extruded polystyrene has the benefit of closed cells which will not absorb moisture and affect thermal performance.

Lightweight yet sturdy, these insulation sheets are versatile and suitable for use in walls, roofs and even under slab insulation for concrete floor bases.

Our Eco-Warm Ravatherm XPS wall insulation solutions are available in three thicknesses and are supplied in a handy sheet size of 1200 x 600mm. The Insulation boards are lightweight, strong and dust free making them very easy to work with.

Ravatherm XPS can be cut to your required size either by using a fine-toothed saw, or by scoring with a knife then snapping over a straight edge. Whether applied to walls, roofs or floors, Eco-Warm XPS insulation sheets offer efficient thermal insulation making summer houses suitable for use throughout the year.

5 benefits of insulating a summer house and garden room with Styrofloor and Eco Warm XPS

  1. Temperature Regulation: Our Styrofloor board and Eco-Warm XPS insulation sheets help to maintain a stable temperature inside, ensuring comfort year-round by keeping a building cooler in hot weather and warmer during cooler periods.
  2. Energy Efficiency: By minimising heat transfer through walls and roofs, our insulation options reduce the need for excessive energy consumption to heat or cool the summer house and garden room.
  3. Cost efficient: This improved energy efficiency resulting in effective insulation can lead to significant energy cost savings over time.
  4. Moisture Resistance: Styrofloor has moisture-resistant properties to prevent condensation within the summer house. This contributes to better indoor air quality and protects the building against mould or rot.
  5. Durability: By providing a layer of protection to the floors, walls and roofs, our insulation solutions improve the durability of the summer house and garden room, reducing the need for maintenance over time.
