Global Innovative Building Systems and Isover explain why it’s vital to specify quality insulation products in order to comply with green building specifications.
Global Innovative Building Systems and Isover have become renowned within the South African insulation industry. While there are numerous buzz words that architects as well as design and construction professionals hear on a daily basis (such as global warming, green councils and energy-efficiency), there are still a few basic principles that give clarity and meaning to it all.
Compliance with specifications, monitoring of thermal values and fire ratings are all high priority within the building industry. It’s true that many things can be done in order to meet green building specifications and achieve certifications, but few things are as efficient as the use of insulation on projects.
Global Innovative Building Systems offers a wide range of insulation products that cover a variety of applications where essential savings can be implemented. Be it in low temperature building applications which encompass the insulation of ceilings, factory roofs, HVAC or air-conditiong, and acoustics or high temperature applications in general industry including boilers, turbines, steam piping and ovens, to name but a few.
Saint Gobain Isover is a global leader in the manufacturing of thermal and acoustic glasswool insulation which is manufactured according to ISO 9001 Quality Management System standards. The plant also achieved ISO 14001 certification in 2012.
The quality of the insulation products that are specified, as well as the density and thickness ratios, will determine the efficiency of the final installation. All technical information is available in order to make an educated choice of product to fulfil and satisfy the philosophy of energy savings and reduce energy consumption.
