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.
Isoboard - the Inverted Roof Concept, also known as protected membrane or upside down roofing, ensures insulating both the water-proofing membrane and the reinforced concrete slab from extreme thermal stress. This is achieved by placing IsoBoard extruded polystyrene insulation board above, instead of below the waterproofing membrane.
IsoBoard thermal insulation is a high density, extruded polystyrene rigid insulation board, having a 100% closed cell structure. IsoBoard has been tried and tested internationally since 1970, and manufactured in South Africa since 1995, using a fully automated extrusion process, in accordance with international specifications and standards.

Mobiroof is an instant extensive Green Roofing system. It is especially suitable for roofs that are not able to support a full roof garden. Mobiroof is a clip together cassette system that can be easily laid onto the surface of a roof. Almost instantly a closed fully grown area is created with insulation properties. In the summer the temperature in the building will be markedly less because the sun will not heat the roof anymore, but will encourage the plants in the Mobiroof cassettes to grow instead.Beside insulation properties, a Green Roof has a number of benefits not found with a conventional roof. The planting improves air quality by CO2 reduction and also captures fine particles. UV radiation no longer reaches the roofing materials thereby considerably extending the life of the roof.Mobiroof can be applied to flat roofs and roofs with a slope up to 20 degrees. Above 20 degrees, additional measures must be taken to secure the cassettes. Because of the weight and dimensions of the cassettes, the system can very easily be applied to garages, dormers, extensions and sun houses.The Mobiroof cassettes are cultivated with several types of Sedum (including album, spurium, acre and hispanicum) and Mesembrianthemum cooperi. The cassette is filled with water retaining stones.
