High-Density Polyiso cover boards are an important component in roof systems, providing a substrate for roofing membranes and protection for underlying insulation. When compared to other options, High-Density Polyiso cover boards offer many advantages:

  • Can be shipped with approximately three times more square feet per truck load;

  • Are significantly lighter than alternatives of the same thickness;

  • Require less crane time and are easier to maneuver around the roof which can decrease the hoisting, loading and staging costs;

  • Are virtually dust-free during the cutting process, eliminating itchy residue;

  • Can be cut without specialized tools; and

  • Can be lifted by a single worker.
