Roofing system

What Is ThermoRoof?

The Thermohouse roofing panel consists of two steel C-sections encased in a moulded panel of expanded polystyrene (EPS). Due to their tongue and grooved lateral edges, these insulated roof panels completely interlock with one another. This forms an airtight barrier between the external elements and the internal environment.

What are the benefits of ThermoRoof panels?

The ThermoRoof roofing panels are excellent for achieving energy regulatory requirements, saving money for the home owner and adding structural strength, warmth and value to the building.

  • Quick and simple to install due to their ease of handling and interlocking edges.
  • Lightweight and portable, generally removing the need for cranes.
  • Versatile nature makes the panes Ideal for any roof type or design load.
  • Unique design provides clear fixing points through to the steels within.
  • The attic space is completely insulated, available to be used as another living space.
  • The space is further increased by the absence of roof trusses.
  • Draughts are prevented ensuring the house is kept warm year-round.
  • Airtightness delivers considerable savings on energy bills.
  • Mould and rot resistance

How are ThermoRoofs Constructed?

ThermoRoof Panels are lightweight but extremely strong as they are each reinforced within by 2 steel C-section running their entire length. Compared to traditional roof structures, ThermoRoofs require minimal support. These lightweight panels can free span 3.5M or more dependent on location, and up to 12M with intermediate support in the form of purlins or knee walls. Generally, a wall plate and ridge beam will suffice, so this removes the need for space eroding rafters, A-frames, or trusses.

The panels interlock and are fixed into each timber/steel support below, through both of their steel C-sections. Once they are fixed in place, they can be finished in the traditional manner: primary battens, breather membrane, secondary battens and your chosen roof covering.
