RECYCLED AND 100% ECO FRIENDLY ROOF INSULATION WITH A LIFETIME GUARANTEE

PRODUCT INFORMATION

THERMGUARD CELLULOSE FIBRE INSULATION

THERMGUARD Cellulose Fibre Insulation is made from recycled newsprint mixed with additives to make it fire retardantand insect and rodent resistant. Thousands of tonnes of newsprint that could otherwise have been sent to landfills are milled into our light cellulose fibre insulation with optimal density, which is blown onto the ceiling in your roof.  Cellulose fibre insulation fits effectively into all the hard to reach nooks and crannies, ensuring the best possible coverage for superior results.

COOL IN SUMMER & WARM IN WINTER

Heat moves naturally from areas of high to lower heat within your house, and all the building materials used in your house either absorb heat or help to transfer it. If your home is heated in winter, that hot air will continually try to move to the outside of your house, where the air is cooler. In the summertime, hot air from the outside will constantly try to flow into the cooler space in your house.

PRODUCT INFORMATION

  • FIRE RETARDANT

    THERMGUARD is treated with fire retardant additives and withstands the heat of a blow lamp without melting or emitting toxic fumes. Where our building insulation has been present in fires it has actually afforded protection against spread and reduced damage. Fire tested in terms of SANS 428 and classified B/B1/2.

    SOUND PROOFING

    Cellulose fibre is a very effective soundproofing material. THERMGUARD is four times as dense as glass fibre and therefore has excellent acoustic values. Noise pollution from traffic and airplanes will be significantly reduced in the home once THERMGUARD is installed. The layer of roof insulation will also prevent sound travelling between rooms through the roof space. When installed at 100mm, and thicker, Thermguard will have a Noise Reduction Co-efficient of .80 – .90. This means that .80 – .90 of the sound will be absorbed by the insulation.
  • 100% SEAMLESS COVER

    Cellulose fibre is loose-fill insulation and is blown onto your ceiling. As a result it gets into all the hard to reach nooks and crannies of your roof, providing a totally seamless blanket where no heat gains and losses can occur. Any gaps in roof insulation would reduce its effectiveness, but with THERMGUARD, you will never have this problem.

    SUPERIOR INSULATION

    With the installation of modern machinery from the United States, THERMGUARD has been able to reduce the density of the product by 20%. This allows more air to be trapped between the fibres giving you, the customer, a lighter, less expensive product with superior insulation values.
  • INSECT AND RODENT REPELLENT

    The additives in THERMGUARD, while harmless to humans, irritate insects and rodents, hence they will not live in the fibres. As a result, fitting our product is actually an effective form of pest control in your roof.

    PACKAGING

    THERMGUARD is supplied in bags made from mainly recycled plastic, thus ensuring that it reaches your home in a totally dry state. These empty plastic bags are once again sent for recycling.
  • NON ALLERGENIC

    THERMGUARD will not cause problems for allergy sufferers.

    LIFETIME GUARANTEE

    THERMGUARD offers a lifetime guarantee.

EMBODIED ENERGY

The embodied energy in a product is the energy which was consumed during manufacture. THERMGUARD has a very low embodied energy as the major raw material, waste paper, has an effective value of zero because it merely has to be transported to the factory rather than to landfill sites. The milling of the product is a relatively low energy process. By contrast, processing of raw materials for mineral fibre manufacture requires extraction and crushing of finite mineral resources by energy-intensive methods.
