Launched in 2006 as a human-friendlier alternative to other commonly occurring insulation products on the market, Eco-Insulation has made good inroads into meeting the needs of specifying professionals and builders looking for eco-friendly, safe and energy-efficient thermal or acoustic insulation.

Official bodies and industry associations have also taken note of the company’s efforts, starting with the SA Productivity Award it received in the Western Cape shortly after its inception. This award was made due to the urgent sense of purpose and importance that the company attached to qualifying for SABS certification.

Thereafter came the excellence accolade that the company received during 2008, when it was granted the “Energy-Efficiency Company of the Year Excellence Award by the Southern African Energy-Efficiency Association; and more recently the company has received its product compliance certificate (PCC) from the Thermal Insulation Association of South Africa (TIASA), an essential requirement when specifying insulation for a project in accordance with SANS 10400-XA.

Eco-Insulation’s general manager, Richard Ellis, explains: “The PCC can be used along with the SANS 1381-6 certificate for 2011 when confirming compliance for customers who demand assurance that the use of our product will be acceptable to risk managers and underwriters, as well as to green building energy-saving compliance requirements. It is relevant to point out that there are other brands of insulation on the South African market that are not certified to SANS 1381, nor possess a PCC, nor are listed on the TIASA Fire Register. Hence in the event of an incident such customers may not be covered through their insurance when using these products.”

In the domestic retrofit and the housing development markets, the Eco-Insulation mailbox and consumer activist sites such as Hello Peter have been receiving positive comments from satisfied clients nationwide.

The proof of these claims can be found in the reaction of its customers. “Many thanks for a really extremely well executed and professional service from your installation team. We would like to ask that you extend our thanks to them, and also our appreciation of the exceptional professionalism on-site, and their timeous, neat and professional installation. They are gold in your hands. Thanks again.” – A satisfied retrofit client, July 2013

Eco-Insulation sees its success as being attributable to its dual focus on quality and on people. “Our dedication to quality is demonstrated by the awards we have received, and our commitment to people and the environment that they live in is demonstrated by the time and trouble they take in saying thank you and by the recognition we have received in the field of our contributions to sustainable living and energy-efficiency. See the newly launched website, www.eco-insulation.co.za, for an extensive list of recent customer testimonials,” added Ellis. The website also contains a host of user-friendly information about the topic of insulation and energy-efficiency.
