South African housing complex designers and commercial project developers are pressed hard by the rising energy costs and the new building regulations that govern the use of energy in new buildings and major refits.
In the case of energy-efficient homes and refits, clients are looking for energy-saving products such as Eco-Insulation, which is economical to install and offers substantial energy-saving benefits.
Eco-Insulation offers a turnkey professional installation service and is highly favoured by many clients. The product is pumped and sprayed into the roof. Specialised teams are also trained to remove any old collapsed insulation from the site and oversee its approved dumping. This is particularly important in the case of glass fibre, which is noxious to work with and provides a problem to contractors on site.
Eco-Insulation complies fully with the definitions of being green and sustainable. Due to its very low energy and low environmental impact recycling process, it probably has the lowest carbon footprint of all building materials.
Eco-Insulation is made from recycled newsprint collected from commercial waste streams. The product is treated with an approved environmentally-friendly flame retardant and supplied to the market via a network of professional installers in all the major centres – a one-stop turnkey service that integrates with the schedules of roofing contractors on site. The product is fire-rated (“No spread of flame”) and most importantly carries the SABS mark.
