frequently asked questions


What are the large differences to consider when purchasing?


Thermal Insulation, Moisture Resistance, Fire Resistance, Density, Chemical Resistance, and Manufacturing; As PU is one of the best adhesives available it has a very strong bond to the panel skin and is made by high-pressure injection moulding. EPS needs to be bonded to the panel skin and this process often creates voids in the adhesion layer and results in delamination of the panel skin, causing reduced useful life span. For more info, see out product page.


What is the expected lifespan of AMBS’s products?


Our 40mm polyurethane panel-buildings have a lifespan of 20 to 30 years but are considered a permanent building solution with an unlimited lifespan provided that buildings are correctly maintained. To maximise lifespan, buildings must undergo regular maintenance.


What is the difference between a EPS and polyurethane panel?


Polyurethane is more expensive than expanded polystyrene, and most suppliers in the panel industry use expanded polystyrene due to the low cost and easy manufacturing.


What guarantee is offered on products?


We offer a one year guarantee on our products, for equipment manufactured by our approved supplier we provide the manufacturer’s warranty, which is generally 12 months from receipt of the materials.


What is the difference between prefabricated buildings and containers?


Prefabricated buildings are made with polyurethane temperature and sound insulated panels, whereas containers are standard sea freight shipping containers. Prefabricated buildings offer more flexible dimensions than containers, which are restricted to the standard container dimensions.
