Northwestern Ohio Foam Products, a Wauseon, Ohio-based company that manufactures and sells high performance radiant floor heating insulation and building products, has announced their new product used for radiant floor heating.

BarrierX5 is a roll out radiant floor heating insulation and vapor barrier that is made with 1.25" thick 100% recycled extruded expanded polystyrene and heavy duty polyethylene film laminated to both sides. Like a foam cup protects your hand from the hot beverage it holds, BarrierX5 protects floor heating from heat loss and moisture. BarrierX5 under concrete foam insulation is a thermal block which insulates the concrete from the cold and dampness of the ground.

The product is strong and durable and will not collapse under the weight of the concrete. BarrierX5 comes in flexible 4'x60' rolls with a patented edge taping system making installation fast and efficient -save over 40% of reduced taped seams as compared to rigid boards. The unique design lets workers walk on it without breaking it apart keeping the X5's insulation properties intact while also letting the installation crew spend more time on other jobs without the need to repair broken boards or taping seams. The faster the installation time, the lower the wage costs leading to higher profitability.
