Typical uses of IsoBoard in building projects

 

Retail and Commercial

IsoBoard has been used successfully on retail projects of all sizes, including: Gateway – Durban (over-purlin under roof-sheet), Century City – Cape Town (under-soffit with nail-up), The Crescent Center – Umhlanga (Nail Up Ceiling concealed fixing).

The thermal performance of numerous office parks and buildings has been enhanced with IsoBoard laid over the water-proofing and concrete deck, under ballast of pavers or stones. Examples of this application include KPMG offices and the Sheraton Hotel in Pretoria.

With IsoBoard the cost of achieving comfort in retail and commercial applications is reduced due to the reduction in heat gain under hot conditions. In cold conditions, heating energy is conserved.

Industrial

Used in diverse industrial buildings, such as for food processing, liquor and pharmaceuticals, IsoBoard helps control internal temperatures, which extends the shelf-life of the product. Where temperatures can be maintained within the range of human comfort, productivity is also enhanced. For this reason IsoBoard has been used to retrofit large structures in the motor, engineering and textile industries.

Typical examples where IsoBoard has been installed over-purlin for large structures include Eagle Ottawa in Centurion, Texray & GMS in Swaziland

Government and Education

Government Use Hospitals in Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal and Limpopo Province have been insulated with IsoBoard. The product has been used at: The Pretoria Academic Hospital, St Anne’s in Pietermaritzburg (inverted roof application), St Rita’s Meadowlands Clinic in Soweto (over-purlin).

Schools in Botswana have made extensive use of IsoBoard as a ceiling or roof-liner to ensure comfort in this extreme climate. Academic results from children at properly insulated schools in KwaZulu-Natal have shown improvements from 16 – 35%. The MTN campus in Randburg makes use of IsoBoard behind aluminum spandrels.

Residential

Residential Use IsoBoard fitted using the Nail Up method creates aesthetically pleasing insulated ceilings. It is very effective in damp environments such as bathrooms and sculleries.

Affordable Housing

Low Cost Housing Use In the Southern and Western Cape condensation belt IsoBoard is widely used in low income subsidy housing, where it is installed as a roofliner, over rafters or purlins, under fibre-cement roof-sheeting.

IsoBoard reduces the ingress of moisture and mould growth through the walls.
