Plasti-Fab® is a Canadian owned company and a leader in the North American expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation industry. That they are now celebrating 50 years of excellence is testament to their ongoing commitment to providing quality products, industry expertise and superior customer service.
EPS has been recognized as a leading insulation material used in many diverse building projects. Over the past two decades, new EPS applications have spiraled, proving its ability to serve as a powerful design element. Plasti-Fab provides effective insulation products for constructing energy-efficient buildings, as well as lightweight and compressible fill for geotechnical construction projects, and component solutions for Original Equipment Manufacturers.
Plasti-Fab’s forward-thinking EPS insulation solutions have reduced energy consumption in homes across North America. Many of their products are an integral component in numerous LEED® certified buildings and Net Zero Energy Homes as well as award-winning homes for Habitat for Humanity.
Changes in the building code are placing more stress on effective R-value and energy efficiency. Plasti-Fab’s insulation products help meet these increasing demands, and retain their R-value for the life of the building.
The newest Plasti-Fab product, DuroSpan® GPS insulation, uses a graphite-enhanced raw material to reduce heat loss and create a more energy-efficient building envelope.
The Advantage ICF System® is a patented insulating concrete forming system (ICF) that provides structural strength, studding, vapour and air barrier, and external sheathing, resulting in reduced construction time and a quiet, energy-efficient environment. The Insulspan® Structural Plasti-Fab®: Insulation Experts Since 1968 Insulating Panel (SIP) System provides a proven method of constructing walls and roofs with a continuous layer of thermal insulation, resulting in significant energy savings.
Plasti-Fab EPS insulation products have also been used successfully in a wide variety of residential and commercial construction projects across North America.
Plasti-Fab provides technical expertise to help customers make the right choices. Their 100+-page Design Manual is one of the most comprehensive in the industry.
Operating nine manufacturing facilities across North America, Plasti-Fab products are available to customers using a wide range of distribution channels including building supply stores, construction specialty distributors and homebuilders in the Canadian and U.S markets.
Plasti-Fab’s facilities adhere to stringent manufacturing process controls and third party certification of all their products. Their insulation products have never contained HFCs, HCFCs or other blowing agents.
