Jablite is the UK's largest producer of EPS products for insulation and civil engineering applications

Inverted Roof Insulation


The Jablite Inverted Roof Insulation range of products is BBA-certified and approved to ETAG 031 (European Technical Approval Guidelines). It is supplied in 200 or 300 grade boards to meet the specified compression performance.

An inverted roof construction places thermal insulation above the waterproof layer. This maintains the waterproof membrane at an even temperature and protects it from the damaging effects of UV radiation or the effects of the weather. The specified thermal performance of the inverted roof is achieved through the roof design and the thickness of the insulation used.

Key Benefits
