SPECIFY SUSTAINABLE GREEN PERFORMANCE ?

Eco-Insulation, positions itself at the forefront of thermal and acoustic insulation green performance as evidenced by the following benefits:
  • A low embodied energy content is a key element in classifying buildings materials as sustainable or green.
  • As a recycled building material the product has a very low environmental impact and low embodied energy due to a low energy manufacturing process.
  • The energy-saving performance of the product, once installed, is excellent – considerably benefiting the energy performance of the whole building. In certain building designs under extreme summer conditions, buildings have been observed to be up to 8 – 10 ยบC cooler, and considerably warmer in winter.
  • Eco-Insulation is made from 100% recycled newsprint - highly environment-friendly.
  • It is readily recycled when no longer needed in situ.
  • Significantly, it is one of few insulating materials to be fully biodegradable. In the case where downcycling is the only option, it can be put to use in various agricultural applications.
  • Eco-Insulation is a zero-emission product. This is a major advantage over many glass, plastic and composite offerings in the market.

EASY INSULATION FOR CEILINGS, ROOFS AND CAVITY WALLS

An easy-to-get thermal insulation option is available to improve energy efficiency in the home or office.

Eco-Insulation is easily specified by the architectural and building industry since its key technical details and specifications are readily available on electronic library services such as SpecXPert, Specifile Online, or on CAD materials support packages such as Autospec. 

Many architects and designers are turning to Eco-Insulation for use in ceilings or cavity walls because it is so incredibly easy to install. Due to a unique insulation installation pump developed by the company, the product can be efficiently installed with 100% coverage by dedicated sub-contractors either into new buildings or retrofitted into existing or old buildings. 

The beauty of our design is that access into the roof cavity is not essential to provide 100% coverage. Eco-Insulation, when pumped, assumes a fluid consistency that uniformly and easily delivers product right across the area where you are installing.

What's more, Eco-Insulation is a green building product that is SABS Approved and is Fire-Rated.

GUNNING FOR GREEN STAR?

With the release of the Green Building Council of SA's certification for South African buildings, a number of progressive developers and architects are designing sustainable buildings, or gunning for a Green Star Rating. 

Materials consumed or used in the building process is one of nine major categories of evaluation, hence increasing relevance for green building materials. Other significant categories, related directly or indirectly to the performance of materials are Emissions and Energy.

At the recent GBCSA 3rd Annual Convention 2010, held in Cape Town, South Africa's Green Building Council announced significant progress in rolling out a Green Star Multi-Unit Residential rating tool, scheduled for year-end in pilot form, and progress towards the Existing Building rating tool. The existing buildings tool is dependent on the rollout of a national energy benchmarking system -  as a first step.

Energy performance, with the usage of appropriate building material is hence critically important to the designer's range of green building choices.

What has this to do with Eco-Insulation?
