Modern insulation must deliver beyond the norm, with green requirements and optimised functionality becoming increasingly important.
Technopol SA is a local company with more than 25 years’ experience in the energy-efficiency and insulation industry, and has recently introduced its new LiteCore Building System. This energy-saving and functional insulated brick system not only speaks to the company’s core values of efficiency and excellence, but is also a showcase of its expanded polystyrene system (EPS) format, which plays a significant role in energy saving over the long term.
The company has been able to demonstrate how a previously negatively perceived material can be recycled to produce a thermally efficient and environmentally friendly product which positively contributes to its goal of zero landfill from its EPS processes and products.
Lammie de Beer, managing director of Technopol SA, says: “The Technopol LiteCore brick is an excellent thermal insulator. As its construction combines thermal mass and resistance, it regulates temperature fluctuations down to acceptable levels in most developments and in all climatic zones in South Africa.”
He adds that the insulation system is highly practical and customisable with a wide range of solutions to choose from to match the specifications and scope of the design.
The Technopol LiteCore Building System has the following benefits:
• The highest safety and excellent fire-resistant properties (two hours fire resistant).
• Does not contribute to the spread of fire.
• A non-toxic and environmentally responsible solution for green buildings.
• Is unaffected by weather conditions.
• Is water-, mould- and noise resistant.
• An R-value that is fully SANS 10400 XA compliant.
• Uses in house technology and R&D.
• Durable, quick and easy to install.
The Technopol LiteCore Building System can easily be adopted for use in more conventional building construction. It requires little skills set adjustments in terms of installation and easily delivering an energy-efficient, well insulated building that reduces the cost of heating and cooling, which is amounting to greener living.
The Technopol LiteCore Building System is one of the best passive temperature systems and the company is a proud member of EPSAS, TIPSASA and SAEEC.
