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.
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.
