The Ultimate Solution to Wall Insulation

Reduce energy consumption and create warmer rooms using Styroliner insulated dry lining boards. Extruded Polystyrene (XPS) is factory-bonded to plasterboard to create a simple and effective solution that is incredibly easy to install. Styroliner boards are suitable for both refurbishments and new build applications, and are available in standard thicknesses from 27mm – 85mm.

Improving thermal insulation is made simple by the use of Styroliner fixed directly to the walls and ceiling. Boards can also be fixed to the underside of rafters to improve energy saving in the loft space. The design of wall constructions to achieve Building Regulations is easily achieved when specifying Styroliner. The large range of sizes available means that Styroliner boards can achieve high performing thermal values.

Technical information

The XPS insulation backing is an extruded polystyrene which combines low thermal conductivity and a high resistance to moisture to ensure permanent long-term insulation. Panel Systems use XPS Insulation that is CFC and HCFC free and has an Ozone depletion potential (ODP) of zero.

Styroliner® consists of Gyproc 9.5mm thick plasterboard factory bonded to various thicknesses of XPS Insulation. The boards comprise tapered-edge wallboard for direct decoration. A grey paper-faced, square-edge board is also available for use where a plaster finish is required. The nominal standard sizes are given below:

Frequently asked questions

Is Styroliner® resistant to moisture?2023-08-24T09:21:20+01:00

The XPS backing is a closed cell foam and is therefore resistant to moisture.

Can I decorate Styroliner® boards?2023-08-24T09:21:01+01:00

Yes, the boards are faced with square edged plasterboard which can be decorated or skimmed with plaster.

What thickness of Styroliner® is required?2023-08-24T09:21:40+01:00

This will depend on two important factors. If the project is subject to building regulations, then there will be a need to achieve a certain thermal performance i.e., U value. For advice on meeting specific U values, please contact our sales team on 0114 249 5626. If the project is not subject to building regulations, then you can choose whatever thickness you can accommodate in your construction. The thicker the panel, the higher the level of energy saving.

How is Styroliner® delivered?2023-08-24T09:22:05+01:00

Styroliner® boards are stacked on pallets and will arrive on a commercial vehicle. Where small quantities are required then off-loading manually is likely. For larger volumes, on-site forklift facilities will be required. Special vehicles e.g. Hiab, can be prearranged with our sales office for an additional charge. Give us a call on 0114 249 5626 for more information.
