MAKE SURE YOUR PRODUCT COMPLIES

Specifiers and homeowners should  ask to see a copy of the relevant certification relating to fire and  performance when considering installing insulation.  For example, advertising a product as being “SABS tested” does not mean that the product is approved under SABS codes. Only products carrying the SABS mark comply with the relevant standard. Eco-Insulation is approved under SABS 1381-6 and therefore displays the SABS mark.

CONSUMER RIGHTS AND INSULATION

At Eco-Insulation, we welcome the introduction of the Consumer Protection Bill.

Consumer protection means that a whole lot of traditional raw building material suppliers, who have been skirting below the radar-zone for many years, could be forced to disclose the toxic nature of their product offerings.

Let's start with toxic emissions. Lurking around the household – in the attic and in the walls – for many years, has been formaldehyde. Far more than the innocuous “formalin” that most school biology students have used to preserve specimens, formaldehyde is classified internationally as a known carcinogen. Both in liquid and vapour forms.

How many architects, designer and project managers out there know that formaldehyde is a common “VOC” (Volatile Organic Compound) emitted from resins and binders? And that it is used in the manufacture of popular types of insulating materials – both bulk fill and composite.

No names, no pack drill, folks. Let’s just talk generic products. You are not going to want certain types of fibrous synthetic plastic or glass-based insulating materials NEAR your construction sites once the Consumer Protection Act forces manufacturers to disclose.

So, Eco-Insulation says “Start the Ball Rolling”. Telephone your supplier today and ask some questions about product toxicity, that you were previously too shy to ask.

As from October, you have the Law on your side !
