Marley Building Systems launches new thermal insulation range
Released 12 March 2018
Marley Building Systems is expanding its product solutions range to bring an even more comprehensive offering to the South African market and to neighbouring countries.
The new thermal insulation range, called Marley Polywool Insulation, will complement the company’s existing Siniat gypsum ceiling solutions.
The energy efficiency standards of SANS 204 require that all new buildings and extensions have insulation installed. “Safety is our number one priority,” says Nthatisi Vilakazi, Marley Building Systems’ Product Manager for Siniat Gypsum, “and the introduction of Marley Polywool Insulation will make it convenient for our customers to now purchase insulation for every square metre of gypsum ceiling boards that they install.”
Marley Polywool Insulation is fully compliant with the SANS 10400 National Building Code. It carries the SABS mark of approval (MARK 9586/15037) and complies with SANS 428 with a fire rating of B/B1/B2, meaning that the material is combustible at 750 degrees and will not spread flame. Furthermore, the material carries the Agrément South Africa certification, and is a member of the Thermal Insulation Association of South Africa (TIPSASA). Architects, contractors and government departments can be rest assured that Marley Polywool Insulation has the green light as a fully accredited product.
The eco-friendly nature of Marley Polywool Insulation makes it a natural choice. Not only is it non-allergenic and a non-irritant, it is produced from recycled PET (plastic) bottles. Marley Polywool Insulation is 100% safe! It is non-toxic and has no chemical additives. Furthermore, it is also completely odourless.
Marley Polywool Insulation can be used in both residential and commercial projects, ensuring the thermal comfort of a building’s occupants whether it is hot or cold. The thermal resistance, or R-value, of the insulation varies according to the material’s thickness which ranges from 40mm to 135mm. The standard width is 1 200mm, but a width of 750mm can be manufactured to accommodate client requirements.
“Efficiency drives innovation and we believe that Marley Building Systems has sought the right thermal insulation solution with Marley Polywool Insulation,” Nthatisi comments.
“This of course is in line with our positioning as the South African subsidiary of Belgian industrial group, Etex, to be a leading supplier of innovative, sustainable and complete building solutions.”
“Our aim is to create today the solutions for the buildings of tomorrow.”
