RAVATHERM UK‘s extruded polystyrene insulation, POLYFOAM™ XPS, has received a British Board of Agrément (BBA) certificate for its inverted roof system and floor board insulation.

These floorboard and inverted roof solutions have passed a series of extensive and independent assessments set by the BBA, which include laboratory tests, quality management inspections and on-site evaluations.

The BBA certification complies with Building Regulations and the National House Building Council (NHBC) Standards, and demonstrates outstanding design considerations, along with technical and installation guidance.

Based in Hartlepool, RAVATHERM and its POLYFOAM™ XPS was assessed on the durability, thermal performance, condensation risk and resistance to foot traffic on its inverted roof system. 

The BBA certificate also covers RAVATHERM UK’s POLYFOAM™ XPS Floorboard Standard and Extra, which can be specified as thermal insulation on ground-bearing or suspended concrete floors in new and existing buildings.

The Floorboard products can be chosen for both domestic and non-domestic us, remaining effective as an insulation for the life of the building.

Managing director of RAVATHERM UK, Stuart Bell, commented on the accolade: “A BBA Certificate is a mark of quality and reliability of a product used in the construction industry, providing reassurance that it is fit for purpose.

“The Hartlepool headquarters was a recent acquisition by RAVATHERM UK in January 2017, and the plant has been manufacturing high quality, strong and reliable XPS insulation in the UK for more than 30 years.  

“The BBA certificate showcases our continuous commitment to providing fully tested and accredited solutions to the marketplace, and ensures POLYFOAM™ XPS not only meets but exceeds our customers’ expectations.”
