FOAMGLAS® Insulation General Information





FOAMGLAS® insulation: Economy and ecology, all in one.

Effective thermal insulation helps considerably in saving energy, and is therefore a must today.  When choosing insulation you must ask yourself these key questions:

  • Will it perform for the lifetime of the building?
  • Will its insulating properties remain unchanged over time?
  • What is its impact on the environment?
  • Is it fireproof?
  • Is it waterproof?
  • Does the insulating material convincingly combine economy & ecology?


FOAMGLAS® insulation comes out exceptionally well in this overall assessment. Long service life, safety, environmental compatibility and economic feasibility make FOAMGLAS® insulation the preferred insulating material for the whole building envelope.




A lifetime of high performance.
The ultimate insulation with outstanding physical qualities.

FOAMGLAS® cellular glass insulation - unrivalled in performance whatever the building system.


Where long-term effective construction, coupled with financial efficiency are demanded by owners and specifiers, the inherent qualities of FOAMGLAS® ensure that it is the only choice.


For flat roofs; standing seam roofs; green roofs or car park decks; interior, exterior or cavity walls; under or over concrete and hardcore floors, there is a FOAMGLAS® solution to ensure lifetime performance without degradation.


FOAMGLAS® is the only insulation material that is totally impervious to any form of moisture and which will not burn, or give off toxic fumes or smoke. It is dimensionally stable, has high compressive strength, and is rot, insect, vermin and acid resistant.


Manufactured only from crushed glass and carbon, FOAMGLAS® is totally inorganic and will not support the growth of mould, fungi or micro-organisms. With a co-efficient of linear expansion compatible with both steel and concrete.


FOAMGLAS® remains totally effective in the most demanding situations.  




FOAMGLAS® and the Environment


FOAMGLAS® insulation is completely free of CFCs, HCFCs, HFCs and other pollutants. There are no chemical binders and thus it offers a very low embodied energy.  If you are lookng for LEED or BREEAM credits, look no further as FOAMGLAS® can help you achieve these points.
