board insulation

Definition

Construction

  • Lightweight thermal insulation, such as polystyrene, manufactured in rigid or semi-rigid form, whose thickness is very small relative to its other dimensions. Board insulation offers little structural strength and is usually applied under a finish material, although some types are surface-finished on one side. See also insulating board, insulation board.
