 DAPE co. ltd. has been operating in the Czech market for 22 years and historically it is the first Czech manufacturer and supplier of thermal reflective and vapour-proof insulations, that are produced as a formation of polyethylene air- bubble foils or formation of foam layers and polished aluminium foils.

Thermal insulations have been produced in purely Czech plant in a town called Tišnov since 1991 and years of experience are significantly reflected in continuous improvement of their parameters and creation of new types with different possibilities of use.

By long-term research and development, DAPE company in collaboration with renowned experts managed to launch several types of thermal insulations that are highly effective in many applications and uses.

Unlike conventional thermal insulations, DAPE reflexive insulations have significant thermal-insulation effect which is due to high reflectivity of thermal radiation on very thin aluminium surfaces and at the same time serves as a vapour barrier (prevents from penetration of vapour into roof and wall constructions).


Benefits of DAPE insulations

  • Czech products with more than 20-year tradition
  • Certificated and field proved products
  • Energy and finance saving (3 in 1 - high ability of thermal insulation, vapour- proof insulation and reflection in one product) With the help of DAPE vapour-proof thermal insulation and air- gap, the heat radiating component is by 95% returned to the interior, thus leading to an increase in thermal resistance of structures. In summer in the contrary, thanks to the reflective qualities of DAPE thermal insulation, the  interior is protected against overheating (loft apartments and rooms)
  • Interruption of thermal bridges across the rafters – there is no need for thermal insulation of mineral or glass fibres under the rafters = saving for this isolation
  • possibility of electrical wiring in the air- gap before the DAPE vapour- thermal insulation - no mechanical damage of vapour barrier by puncture
  • DAPE vapour - thermal insulation is not in contact with the layer of view - a truly vapour layer without perforation of ceiling fasteners
  • Possibility of correct ending of vapour barrier on the wall is done by sealing tapes on the vapour barrier – masonry junction and by pressure strip or the sealant .The classical ceiling performance directly on the vapour barrier is difficult to be done and there may be a leak of water vapour into thermal insulation in the roof
  • reduction of interior overheating in summer – type ABA, ARKTIK,ANTARKTIK, POLAR
  • space saving- small thickness of insulation (up to 6 times thinner than conventional insulation) with high insulation capacity
  • simple applications (especially useful for DIYers
  • Less labour intensive due to the combination of two materials in one
  • low surface weight
  • complete solution including supplements
  • moisture-resisting, high durability (no aging when conditions are stable)
  •  universal use (roofs, floors, walls, ceilings)
  • highly flexible design (foil can easily adapt to any shape)
  • safe and fully recyclable products



DAPE insulations can be used in the following areas:

  •  thermal insulation of roofs, floors, halls (also inflatable sports halls, warehouses, etc.)
  • thermal insulation of wooden wall buildings
  • thermal insulation of residential containers
  • thermal insulation from side of interior
  • floor construction( under floor heating pipes)
  • behind heating
  • as additional insulation to the main thermal insulation
  • multiple uses in breeding ( bee keeping, poultry and cattle keeping, rabbit hutches, stables, hunting )
  • thermal insulation of greenhouses
