  • ThermalBoard's thin profile makes it excellent for retrofits
  • ThermalBoard is excellent for small projects, whereas cement and gypsum are impractical and expensive in the same circumstances
  • Many jobs are lost due to resistance to pouring slabs or thin slabs that would not be lost with ThermalBoard
  • ThermalBoard can be installed in cold weather without fear of freezing

  • Double plating adds about 18 cents a square foot to the cost of a home and is needed with thin slab pours
  • Many jobs are lost to perception of slow response time of cement systems. ThermalBoard accelerates rapidly and is appropriate for control with a simple setback thermostat or can be remotely controlled for weekend use
  • Scheduling of ThermalBoard can be more closely controlled, no trucks to wait for!
