FACT IS: ECO-INSULATION THERMAL IS A TOP PERFORMER


It is surprising how much misinformation exists in the insulation market, some of it spread with mischievous intentions.




For example, we recently came across an instance where a real estate agent was informing the market that cellulose insulation loses its R-value, and thereby its effectiveness because it settles with time.

Of course, this is pure nonsense. Our product has been tested and approved under all South African Climatic zones as defined by the CSIR and also the SA Bureau of Standards. All factors are taken into account when our installer team pumps insulation into your roof.

We are proud holders of the Certificate of Compliance from the Thermal Insulation Products and Systems Association of South Africa (TIPSASA). In order to get this rating and accolade, we achieved our SABS mark of approval and passed several tests as conducted by CSIR approved laboratory facilities. And that includes a full fire rating in our class of occupancy also.




Eco-Insulation is laid in your ceiling or wall in a way that ensures if compliance with the Regulation A20 Classification and Designation of Occupancies applicable to Energy Efficiency XA Energy usage in buildings (SANS).

What the real estate agent did not share with readers in his article, was that Eco-Insulation cellulose fibre insulation is one of few products that actually achieve 100% coverage above the ceiling area being insulated. This cannot be claimed by any other common 'thermal blanket' insulation, which is often laid in a careless way and allows draughts to penetrate the open spaces, giving the ceiling or roof hot and cold spots.

Eco-Insulation installers have access to sophisticated open-source software thermal imaging devices, which allow them to identify hot or cold spots in the ceiling or wall that is being insulated.

So if you have any questions or hear misleading information of this kind and want clarification, do ask us. We are waiting to help you on 0860 105 231.

PS. Our brand is so respected that we are often called in to repair poor insulation installations done by other operators, which are clearly not working.

ECO-INSULATION - ENDED 2019 ON A HIGH

With electricity shortages, looming electricity and fuel price increases and an increasingly unstable climate, South African developers have been turning more and more to eco-friendly, pumped-in cellulose product, Eco-Insulation.

Why is this?

In today's construction industry, installer efficiency and above-average performance is the name of the game.  Developers and direct clients don't want to be worried about come-backs, late arrivals on site and other delays.

As a TIPSASA member company, Eco-Insulation follows the highest standards.

Developers and project managers use us because we provide the vital link to SABS 10400-XA compliance - the national building standards, which are mandatory for all plans passed by local authorities. Eco-Insulation provides the R-value in the roof. Simple as that!

We are Gapping it!

This is Pelican Park, near Zeekoievlei, Cape Town, where we were fortunate enough to be awarded with a contract to fit Eco-Insulation into a number of new Gap homes under construction.


Gap housing is best described as those residential units whose prices fall between those supplied by government and those delivered by the private sector. A perceived gap exists in the monthly income requirements for the prospective owner of between R3 500 for government housing and R15 000 for private. Theses levels of income are too little to enable them to participate in the private property market, yet too much to qualify for state assistance.

Eco-Insulation was contracted to install ceiling insulation to specification SANS 10400 XA Code of Practice.This means that product had to be pumped into the ceiling of each residential unit to a thickness of 135 mm. Each housing unit (pictured) which vary in size between 48m2 to 74m2 in area and are constructed in compliance with the SABS Energy Saving codes of practice.

Are you a housing developer? Just a word of advice. Beware of unscrupulous insulation sub-contractors who under-quote the good established brands and then recover their discounts by using less material - i.e. installing less insulation or insulation to a lower installed depth than that specified by the authorities.

Eco-Insulation is a proud holder of the Product Compliance Certificate issued by our industry association, Tiasa. In fact we were one of the first brands to receive this certification.

ECO-INSULATION / ENGINEERING NEWS INTERVIEW



According to popular industry and professional journal, Engineering News, insulation promotes an eco-friendly approach to heating and cooling.

Eco-Insulation GM Richard Ellis says this is because the company’s insulation product, which has the same name as the company, provides a passive, non-energy dependent method of keeping buildings comfortable for their occupants.

“Our Eco-Insulation product traps existing heat inside a building, eliminating the need to burn gas, or to use electric or paraffin heaters.  For cooling, the insulation stops heat from entering the building, which eliminates the need for air conditioning or using electric fans,” he explains.
