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.
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.
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.
THERMGUARD is treated with fire retardant additives and withstands the heat of a blow lamp without melting or emitting noxious 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
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.
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.
THERMGUARD will not cause problems for allergy sufferers.
