IsoBoard, high density extruded polystyrene rigid thermal insulation board, with 100% closed cell structure!
IsoBoard‘s highly effective thermal insulation qualities are equalled only by our versatility in new construction and renovations to the building envelope. The inclusion of IsoBoard thermal insulation contributes significantly to predictable temperatures and human comfort, reducing the need for artificial temperature control. This means cost savings from reduced energy consumption and by implication lower carbon emissions.
IsoBoard has an almost indefinite life-span if installed correctly. It can be used as a ceiling, to insulate older buildings at foundation level, retrofit to flat roofs, applied between or over rafters, trusses and over-purlin and installed in wall cavities. In fact, it can be used wherever aesthetically pleasing, efficient, water resistant, and cost-effective insulation material is required. IsoBoard applications are as wide as your imagination!
Installing effective building thermal insulation such as IsoBoard will:
- Achieve a comfortable living or working environment within your home or building, usually between 21° and 28° Celsius, which requires the least intervention to heat and cool.
- Enable energy efficiency, and achieve legislated compliance, using the minimum amount of energy for heating and cooling interventions to achieve comfortable living, or specified temperatures for commercial or agricultural activities. This also contributes to reducing personal or commercial greenhouse gas emissions, i.e. lowering your carbon footprint. The National Building Regulations SANS 10400XA require new buildings to conserve scarce energy resources.
- Save money on heating and cooling energy costs. The investment in thermal insulation is usually repaid within two to four years, meaning real savings in successive years. This is especially true with IsoBoard insulation, which can be expected to last the life of the building with the minimum of deterioration in thermal performance.
- Improve health and productivity. Good thermal insulation will reduce internal condensation and provide stable internal temperatures, contributing to your health, well-being and productivity. In commercial and particularly agricultural applications, yield and input cost is often directly dependent on effective temperature control.
