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.
Eco-Insulation’s combination of exceptional thermal R-Values, sound insulation and its ability to cover 100% of the area being treated, ensure that indoor temperatures are ideally regulated, keeping interiors warm in winter and cool in summer, reducing heating and cooling costs. Eco-Insulation does not deteriorate or lose efficiency over time, and comes with a lifetime guarantee…
Cineplex ceiling tiles are manufactured from noncombustible inorganic Glasswool and bonded with an inert thermosetting resin binder. The tile is faced with a black non-woven glass tissue for optimal sound
absorption. Applications include suspended ceilings in commercial buildings such as cinemas.
The newly legislated SANS 10400-XA: 2011 and SANS 204: 2008 introduce the requirement for proof of compliance with the standards set out for energy efficiency in buildings. This means that architects and building developers need to ensure that new buildings and building refurbishments are designed to meet the prescribed energy efficiency standards; that a building’s performance in terms of energy usage is calculated and documented; and that the building is built to perform accordingly. Thermal insulation materials – for roofs, walls and floors – constitute a key element in building to achieve the required thermal resistance values (R-values) as set out in SANS 204.
Research in the USA, Australia and South Africa continues to present the many reasons why clay brick construction, so widely applied in South Africa for house construction, deserves its pre-eminent status in sustainable house construction.
For South Africa's climates, thermal modelling studies, validate that a walling material's R value is not representative of the thermal value for energy efficient house design properties of a material. This rep
