InSoFast panels are made of expanded polystyrene, a non-toxic, inert material also used in traditional rigid insulation panels. This material has a higher insulation efficiency compared to fiberglass or cellulose insulation.

Unlike traditional rigid insulation panels, which fit between studs or joists, InSoFast panels only install on top of existing walls. The most common locations for installing InSoFast panels are basements, as these rooms typically have cement or cinder block construction, making traditional insulation impossible. InSoFast panels also add insulation efficiency to rooms with traditional wooden framing but thin or inefficient insulation.

InSoFast panels use a tongue-and-groove system on every panel, ensuring a snug fit. This system ensures that properly installed panels form a single, continuous layer over the existing wall.

InSoFast panels feature electrical raceways in all panels. Raceways are channels machined into the panels that allow electrical cables to travel to other locations in the home. Electrical raceways eliminate the need to drill to make way for electrical cables, while also preserving the integrity of the panels.
