Insulation reduces solar penetration in summer and heat loss during winter. Aerolite reduces heat flow through the ceiling by up to 87%, thereby improving comfort levels while reducing energy costs. Aerolite made from spun glass and therefore inherently fire-safe, lightweight, odourless, provides no substance for vermin, and reduces noise. Aerolite, being rot-proof, will also offer an indefinite life. Manufactured in four nominal thicknesses: 50 mm (R=1.25); 75 mm (R=1.88); 100 mm (R2.50); 115 mm (R=2.88). The higher the R-value, the better the performance.
Effect of fire
Inherently fire-safe. Non-combustible when tested in accordance with SABS test methods 0177:Part V: Class 1. Fire Index (SABS 0177 Part 111)
Lay insulation on the ceiling board, between ceiling joists and/or tie beams, fitted snugly with ends butted firmly together. The insulation should be left lying and not secured in any manner.
