keyboard_arrow_downNew standards in insulation

By mid-2010 the new SANS 204 Energy Efficiency for Buildings standard will come into effect, requiring a minimum level of insulation in all buildings, by law. The new minimum specifications stipulate a total R-value for roofs and ceilings, depending on pitch and roof construction, which can be achieved by installing either a single layer of ceiling insulation, 60mm to 160mm thick, or multilayered ceiling insulation. Minimum requirements also apply to walls and windows.
