Studies have shown that cellulose may actually protect a building from damage by fire better than other loose fill products - it is denser and limits the oxygen necessary to burn structural members. It also acts as a massive heat sink.
In South Africa, architects, developers and specifiers may specify Eco-Insulation cellulose thermal roof insulation with confidence. The product is approved under SABS 1381-6 and therefore displays the SABS mark. Eco-Insulation is also fire-rated B/B1/2, meaning "No Spread of Flame"..
