REVOLUTIONARY DESIGN, UNMATCHED VALUE

AN INCH AND A HALF … AN R-VALUE OF 50

 

R-50 Systems has introduced ultra-thin insulation solutions to the roofing market – revolutionary alternatives for commercial, industrial and government buildings. Architects, engineers and roofing consultants turn to R-50 products because they deliver:

·       Reduced lifetime energy costs       

·       Simpler retrofits    

·       Significantly lower construction costs  

·       Design flexibility

R-50 requires just 1.5” to match the R-value of 10-15” of traditional insulation. Imagine the possibilities… and watch our video for details.

PRODUCTS THAT DELIVER VALUE

INNOVATION TO MEET TODAY’S CHALLENGES

R-50 designed products exclusively to overcome a series of obstacles: stricter building codes, difficult-to-meet requirements for energy efficiency, rising labor costs, and more. Our signature products:

  • Rich-E-Board™ — an innovative insulated composite panel (ICP) system that delivers superior performance. Two polyisocyanurate foam cover boards sandwich a proprietary Vacuum Insulated Panel (VIP) – a patented design that delivers unmatched value in new roof construction – and eliminates the headaches and high costs typically associated with retrofitted roofs. Today, Rich-E-Board is a key component of Sika’s Sarnathin-50 system.

  • Vacuum Insulated Panels (VIPs) — a compact, insulated panel that employs a high-performance fiberglass core, vacuum sealed in a reinforced polyester barrier.

LOWER COST DESIGN OPTIONS

 

Rich-E-Board’s thin profile gives architects, designers and consultants an innovative alternative for designing or retrofitting a roof. The benefit: you achieve mandated R-values without costly and destructive building modifications. With R-50, you’ll meet or exceed stringent codes — without raising the roof to accommodate traditional insulation.

LONG-TERM ENERGY SAVINGS

Increasing a building’s R-value to R-50 can reduce electric bills by up to 8% and natural gas costs by 10% — a significant savings over a building’s lifetime..

CUTS LABOR COSTS SIGNIFICANTLY

R-50 Systems products are cut-to-spec and lightweight, lowering the cost of delivery and handling and reducing labor costs — both to and on the jobsite.

REDUCED CONSTRUCTION COSTS    

Conventional insulation requires 10- 15” of height to reach the required R-value, making it extremely costly when retrofitting buildings. R-50 Systems products meet or exceed those R-value requirements with a thickness of 1.5” or less. The advantage:  you avoid the expense, noise, dust and displacement associated with an extensive renovation.  

 

Architects and builders can deploy R-50 products in almost any commercial, industrial or government roofing project, including ones with very specific structural requirements like low slope roofs, or environmental challenges like extreme climate zones. Other key advantages:

SUSTAINABLE

Rich-E-Board is recyclable and reusable, achieving LEED 4.0 Recyclable Content approval, and because the panels are manufactured to specifications, they generate far less waste than standard insulation. Working toward a net-zero building? R-50 Insulation Systems is part of the solution.

DURABLE

R-50 products are resistant to water and mold, offering outstanding compressive strength, and carry a Class A fire rating — huge advantages over conventional insulation.

VERSATILE

With an incredibly slim profile — especially compared with multi-layer conventional insulation — Rich-E-Board saves space and expands the design universe. Because Rich-E-Board can be produced to various dimensions, it can be used in most building and wall applications.

PATENTED — AND PROVEN

Rich-E-Board is patented and consists of three main components: the proprietary Vacuum Insulated Panel (VIP), two polyisocyanurate foam cover boards that protect the panel, and the adhesive ribbons that bind the boards and panel together. The result: unparalleled performance in the field.
