The installation of course requires well-trained staff with know-how in the subject. However, the excellent result after installation is seen in the thermal insulation, in the excellent tightness, in the seismicity of the construction, due to high resistance to pressures and in the resistance to time, maintaining its properties.

Due to their important properties, polyurethane panels are widely used in other construction applications, such as the roof covering of buildings for additional thermal insulation, roofs that cannot withstand large slopes, something that the polyurethane panel can withstand, even in cold rooms where the temperature must be controlled.
