As a member of TIASA (Thermal Insulation Association of South Africa), Datlink Insulation and Acoustics is required to re-new existing Fire Tests on their products every five years. This was done recently on ThermocousTex Fibre Blankets and ThermocousTex Boards. Both products maintained their original Fire Rating of “no-flame spread” and were rated with the B/B1/2 rating as before, which conforms to the legislation as set out in the Building Regulations SANS 10400-XA.
The Noise Reduction Coefficient (commonly abbreviated NRC) is a scalar representation of the amount of sound energy (acoustic energy) absorbed upon striking a particular surface. 35mmThick ThermocousTex Boards have a NRC Value of 0.85 and are available in white, marble, and black colours, all of which have identical acoustic performance. These boards are ideal for noisy environments where efficient, cost effective sound absorption solutions are required. Examples of applicable noisy environments are recording studios, church’s, airports, train stations, schools, sports centres, auditorium’s, etc.
Isoboard cavity wall insulation will prevent heat transfer and build-up to the inner leaf of sun exposed walls. Moisture within the cavity is prevented from condensing onto and penetrating through the inner leaf when IsoBoard is installed. The insulation restricts heating ingress to temperature controlled and passive cooled environments.
IsoBoard Insulation installed over purlin under roof sheet. — In South Africa, the bulk of retail and industrial buildings are steel-sheet clad frames, where 70% of the heat gain is through the roof. IsoBoard over purlin insulation is the most cost effective method of achieving thermal efficiency in these buildings.

Thermocoustex Fibre and Thermocoustex Metro Boards were specified and fitted in both Cape Town International and Kigali International Airports. The main benefits of using the fibre and boards as a combination are the substantial reductions in noise from outside air traffic and weather, together with the excellent sound absorption of “people noise” within the building.
ThermocousTex Fibre Blankets (Foil) were specified and installed over purlins on straining wires in the Bellville Station. This product was specified as it has both excellent acoustic dampening benefits (by preventing the steel roof sheets from vibrating) and excellent thermal insulation properties. These benefits have created an environment within the Train Station that is both thermally controlled and acoustically “calm”…
Datlink Insulation and Acoustics is proud that our products, ThermocousTex Fibre and Romatherm Insulation, were specified and supplied to two new schools in the Western Cape in March’15. ThermocousTex Fibre was installed over purlin on straining wires and sandwiched up against the steel roof sheet. This contact with the roof sheet prevents drumming of the roof sheet which creates an environment within the school that is not prone to losing teaching days from excessive rain, wind or traffic noise. Further to this drastic noise reduction is the fact that ThermocousTex has excellent insulation properties…
To reduce the unpleasantly loud and irritating noise reverberation within the most multi purpose school auditoriums, a simple retro fit solution using cost effective ThermoCoustex boards will resolve the problem. In this example, ThermocousTex boards were vertically suspended off steel wires spanning across the underside of the roof, and then clipped onto the wire at equal spacings resulting in vertical fins. These acoustically absorbing boards substantially reduced the reverberation times within the auditorium to acceptable levels…

Loss of heat through floors on concrete surface beds is experienced as a cold underfoot condition, particularly during winter when the supporting soils cool down due to hygroscopic action of water. In order for rooms to be heated or cooled energy efficiently, the floors need to be insulated from the surrounding soil bed to prevent soilbed from being heated.
