Styrofoam Deckmate Thermal Break Strips

Details

Dow Styrofoam Deckmate Thermal Break Strips are made from a high compressive strength 300 kPa Styrofoam extruded polystyrene (XPS) rigid thermal insulation board. Dow Styrofoam Deckmate Thermal Break Strips are designed specifically to reduce the thermal loss on metal deck roof applications.

Depending upon the construction method, in some metal deck roof construction the insulation blanket can be compressed which can reduce the thermal performance of the roof system. The use of Dow Styrofoam Deckmate Thermal Break Strips on top of each purlin above the insulation blanket will ensure that sufficient room is allowed for the insulation blanket to recover to its nominal thickness and that stated R-Values are achieved.

Dow Styrofoam rigid thermal insulation strips are a closed cell structure meaning that they won’t absorb moisture thus retaining their high thermal performance.

Testing has been conducted by the majority of the manufacturers of roofing systems throughout Australia and the addition of Styrofoam Deckmate Thermal Break Strips will not affect the warranties of these manufacturers. 

Dow Styrofoam Deckmate Thermal Break Strips are specifically designed with a high compressive strength and do not absorb moisture which tests have shown to be vital for this application.
