Why insulate using IsoBoard?
Besides for the extensive versatility in application IsoBoard has performed extensive testing to ensure safety and durability
IsoBoard does not support flame spread
IsoBoard has been tested for your piece of mind
IsoBoard is a good choice from a safety point of view: IsoBoard has proven qualities in a fire situation, predominantly that it does not support flame spread. (Fire classification SANS 428 is B/B1/1 Horizontal and Vertical). Although the gases released during a fire (CO 2 and CO) are toxic in high concentration, the volume of board that must be simultaneously burnt in a confined space to achieve a toxic condition makes this scenario unlikely. Many other building components and contents are far more toxic when burning, such as wood.
The board does not support mould growth, or contain food for vermin.
Ease and cost effectiveness of installation: The lightweight nature of the board, its strength, length and flexibility, as well as the tongue and groove edge profile make IsoBoard one of the easiest and cheapest insulators to install, particularly when combined with its ability to be used in exposed applications.
Durability: IsoBoard can reasonably be expected to last for the life of the building, with minimal fall off in thermal performance. Depending on the building type and purpose, this can mean significant energy cost savings over the life of the building.
Versatility of applications: IsoBoard has more application alternatives than any other insulator. The physical properties of the board can be installed in almost any roof liner, ceiling, cavity-wall or under floor application, and it can often be repaired in place when damaged, and painted if required. It is the ultimate “Boer-maak-n-plan” product from an installation point of view, as there is always a way.
Moisture transfer resistance: The fact that IsoBoard is effectively waterproof allows its use in inverted roof applications, as well as in very high humidity applications within agriculture, aquaculture and manufacturing plants. IsoBoard is suitable for use in residential applications where moisture and condensation are prevalent, such as kitchens, bathrooms and economical housing.
