The bulk polyester fibre blanket is supplied in roll form in various thicknesses. Romatherm is friendly to the touch, will not irritate the skin and does not affect breathing in any way. Romatherm has been tested by the SABS, for thermal performance as well as for fire propagation.
Thermocoustex plain board is a thermally bonded polyester board manufactured using recycled polyester (PET Coke bottles etc.) and is ideal for both thermal and acoustic insulation. Thermocoustex is suitable for domestic, industrial and commercial ceilings and offers excellent acoustic and thermal performance in one product.
Thermocoustex plain fibre is a thermally bonded polyester fibreblanket manufactured using recycled polyester (PET Coke bottles etc.). Themocoustex fibreblanket is an excellent thermal insulator, an excellent acoustic insulator from external noise, as well as an excellent acoustic absorber of internal noise.
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…
A poorly insulated roof and ceiling contributes up to 40% of the overall heat loss in winter. A cost effective way to greatly reduce this heat loss is to install a thermally efficient Romatherm insulation blanket into your ceiling or roof. Romatherm is manufactured from recycled PET bottles and supplied in various thicknesses to suit your home’s specific needs. Romatherm is easy to install, does not itch and is an ideal investment to secure a healthier living environment while greatly reducing monthly energy consumption and costs.
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…
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”…
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.
A combination of ThermocousTex Fibre Blankets and ThermocousTex Boards has been specified and fitted in the roof and ceilings to reduce external noise from rain, wind and traffic and absorb internal noise within the classrooms, hallways and open spaces. Noise reduction within the teaching and learning environments greatly improves learning progression, concentration and reduces stress in both teachers and learners. This results in improved academic performance and creates a more enjoyable environment overall.
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.
Romatherm is a cost effective polyester fibre insulation blanket that is produced from recycled PET bottles. Installing Romatherm will reduce electricity usage of energy-consuming heating and cooling systems, in turn saving money and reducing the impact on the environment.
The benefits of using Thermocoustex in churches are: Reduce sound reverberation for the congregation i.e. improved hearing and speech intelligibility. Reduced feedback on stage. Improved thermal insulation of the church in accordance with SANS 10400-XA and SANS 204. Noise reduction from outside sources such as rain, wind, aircrafts, traffic etc.
Datlink is proud to announce that they are part of the Western Cape Governments 110% Green Flagship initiative. This Flagship initiative has made more than the usual commitment towards a Green Economy. 110% Green has taken up the call towards building an economy that connects the well-being of our environment with the growth of our economy…
SANS 10400-XA requires that all new buildings have a legislated amount of insulation. Romatherm Polyester Insulation Blanket is a cost effective insulator that is quick and easy to install. Houses with insulated roofs and ceilings are simply more comfortable and healthier to live in. These thermally improved houses result in substantial energy savings which when multiplied by the number of houses in each community, greatly reduces the power demand on the already “strained” power grid in that area.
Thermocoustex: Eco-friendly thermal and acoustic insulation products used for train stations, film studios, schools, airports etc. Romatherm: Eco-friendly polyester insulation blankets with excellent thermal properties. Used for all buildings requiring effective thermal insulation.
Romatherm is a thermally bonded polyester insulation blanket manufactured using recovered and recycled polyester fibres. Romatherm is easy to handle and does not require any form of protective clothing or face masks during installation. Romatherm is suitable for use in domestic, commercial and industrial buildings. Romatherm has excellent “green” and “eco-friendly” criteria and is safe to use.
Polyester fibre insulating blanket, supplied in roll form in various thicknesses. Romatherm is friendly to the touch, will not irritate the skin and does not affect breathing in any way. Romatherm has been tested by the SABS, for thermal performance as well as for fire propagation. Romatherm does not contribute to flame spread and is not toxic. Romatherm can also be used above purlins to reduce the noise entering through roof sheeting…
A combination of Thermocoustex Fibre Blankets and Thermocoustex Boards were used on the walls, ceiling voids, below the roof and inside air conditioning ducts to achieve the acoustic requirements of the film studio, as well as comply with the SA10400-XA Energy Efficiency regulations.
Romatherm is a preferred choice for insulation solutions in schools due to the thermal and “non irritant” benefits offered by non-woven polyester insulation blankets. Romatherm is friendly to the touch, does not irritate the skin and does not generate loose fibres when being handled or installed, creating a clean environment for both teachers and learners.

Homes, like most buildings in SA, suffer substantial heat (or cold) losses due to insufficient (or no) thermal insulation. Romatherm is manufactured from recycled PET bottles and is cost-effective, safe to use, non-itch insulation that result in significant improvements in both living conditions and electricity consumption. Whether Romatherm is installed between the joists in the ceiling void of a flat roof, or within the ceiling void of a pitched roof, the thermal benefits and costs savings are substantial.
