Factorylite® has excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties.

Legislatively compliant 

SANS 10400-XA mandates the use of a mechanical spacer system to prevent compression of the insulation blankets from roof elements. Insulation performance is reliant on multiple factors, one of them being the thickness of the blanket. Ash & Lacy’s reliable AshGrid™ Spacer System safeguards Factorylite® from compression and maximises the performance of the insulation roll, guaranteeing optimal performance and value for money. 


Issue: Fire safety and thermal comfort in metal buildings. 

Solution: Legislatively compliant metal building insulation solutions combine to deliver performance and safety.
