Insulating your basement floor with DuroFoam Insulation

February 4, 2013

Plasti-FabWritten by: Melissa Carruthers

As many of you are aware,  Plasti-Fab has an insulation product called DuroFoam, that can be used in many applications. Essentially DuroFoam is PlastiSpan but DuroFoam is laminated with a green side and a silver side. This allows for flexibility and durability in the product.

PlastiSpan and DuroFoam are closed-cell EPS insulations. PlastiSpan is available in 2′ x 8′ and 4′ x 8′ sheets; DuroFoam comes in 4′ x 8′ sheets. Both are suitable and recommended as the insulation component in the topic of our discussion: basement floors. They are both easy to cut and install.

Below is a video of our DuroFoam product being installed in a basement floor application.

    Thanks for aware it’s really great information, Essentially DuroFoam is PlastiSpan but DuroFoam is laminated with a green side and a silver side. This allows for flexibility and durability in the product. Insulation is one of the most important things for homes which is situated in cool and warm weather. The video you have added in this post, its sound great. Nice to see this post.
