OPTIM-R E Roofing System

Rigid vacuum insulation panel encapsulated in high performance PIR

Regulations are starting to demand lower energy use in buildings and the need for increased thermal insulation is becoming a priority.

Unless the industry finds new ways to construct today’s buildings in anticipation of tomorrow’s demands, increasing insulation levels could lead to more complicated, thicker constructions and ultimately a loss of space.

The solution is OPTIM-R E.
