Legerboard – Wall insulation (EPS) | Foam Concept

LEGERBOARD  panels are composed of Type II, 7/8”
expanded polystyrene (EPS) and a 7/16” oriented strand
board (OSB). The expanded polystyrene (EPS) provides a
thermal envelop for the structural wall, whereas the OSB
sheet reinforces the wall against diagonal distortion.

LEGERBOARD R4 panels are designed to break the thermal
bridge between the structure and the exterior finish
and conform to the National Building Code. Their solidity
facilitates the installation of exterior finishings.
