Global Innovative Building Systems have become renowned within the South African insulation industry. While there are numerous buzz words that architects, design and construction professionals hear on a daily basis (such as global warming, green councils and energy-efficiency), there are still a few basic principles that give clarity and meaning to it all.
Compliance with specifications, monitoring of thermal values and fire ratings are all high priority within the building industry. It’s true that many things can be done in order to meet green building specifications and achieve certification, but few things are as efficient as the use of insulation on projects.
Benefits And Features:
- Energy-Efficiency – Meets required standards by reducing heat loss/gain due to inherent thermal insulation properties.
- Acoustic Properties – Offer exceptional acoustic properties and enhances indoor environmental quality by the absorption of noise.
- Fire Properties – Non-conbustible material tested EN standards and achieves a Class 1 fire index rating.
- Environmental Sustainability – Glasswool is made from a combination of naturally occurring silica, fluxing agents and up to 80% recycled glass. Glasswool has a zero ozone depleting potential (ODP) and no CFCs or HCFCs are produced in the production process.
Global Innovative Building Systems offers a wide range of insulation products that cover a variety of applications where essential savings can be implemented, be it in low temperature building applications which encompass the insulation of ceilings, factory roofs, HVAC or air-conditioning and acoustics or high temperature applications in the general building industry including boilers, turbines, steam piping and ovens to name but a few.
