SlabShield insulation was designed specifically for use under concrete slabs. We have also designed a thinner version of SlabShield for lightweight concrete applications. Both products give you a vapor barrier and significant thermal performance in one user friendly product. The products have a layer of closed cell polyethylene foam applied to both sides of a reflective layer. The closed cell foam is a vapor barrier and protects the aluminum from the chemical reaction that would occur with uncured concrete. All you need to apply SlabShield is a razor knife and tape (Tape is necessary for a complete vapor barrier to be achieved). Simply roll the product to the desired length and cut. Compare that to working with 4′ x 8′ board insulation and you’ll soon see the time savings of working with SlabShield. Another difference between SlabShield and the foam boards is its ability to mold itself to the contours of your grade. SlabShield is flexible enough to adjust to the high and low areas helping to create a stronger finished concrete pour. SlabShield also does not crack or crumble when faced with the normal abuses the job site throws at it.
The easiest and best way to stop heat transfer between ground and slab, for greater comfort and energy efficient living is to install SlabShield.
Build energy efficient structures from the ground up by using revolutionary ESP LOW-E® SlabShield. Developed with the ® same ESP LOW-E energy efficient® technology that goes into all ESP LOW-E Insulation products, SlabShield offers unique benefits not found in other under slab products. ESP LOW-E® SlabShield is engineered to not only help prevent heat transfer from ground to slab but also to provide a vapor barrier that protects basements from excess moisture.
ESP LOW-E® SlabShie|d is designed with a layer of closed-cell polyethylene applied to both sides of a reflective foil layer. The closed cell doubles as a vapor barrier and a protection for the aluminum against chemical reaction with fresh concrete. ESP LOW-E® SlabShield is puncture resistant up to 93 psi and crush resistant up to 70 psi. Unlike other rigid under slab insulation, ESP LOW-E® SlabShie|d adjusts and molds itself to the contours of the grade providing a better and stronger concrete pour.
ESP LOW-E® SlabShield is easy to apply and will not crack or break like traditional board insulation when walked on. It is lightweight and cuts easily with a utility knife. ESP LOW-E® SlabShield comes in rolls with innovative interlocking tabs that provide a perfect seam when using several rolls side by side.
