Thermgaurd

Thermguard is the original Cellulose Fibre Insulation in South Africa. It is manufactured with over 30 years of product development and industry knowledge. Fit the original proven product.

Eco-Friendly
Thermguard is made from 80% recycled newsprint in a low energy process, making it an extremely eco-friendly product. Preserve the planet with Thermguard

Thermal Properties
Thermguard will prevent up to 91% of the heat generated in the home from escaping upwards through the ceiling in winter and will keep 88% of summer heat out as well.”

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

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.

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.

Soundproofing 
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.

Insect & 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.

Non-Allergenic 
THERMGUARD will not cause problems for allergy sufferers.

Lifetime Guarantee 
THERMGUARD offers a lifetime guarantee.

Inexpensive 
THERMGUARD is competitively priced.

How Insulation Works

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. Insulation works to prevent this transfer of heat.

Air is a poor conductor of heat and hence it is an effective insulator, as long as it is not allowed to move. Due its fibrous nature, cellulose traps large volumes of air which acts as a barrier to heat movement.
In summer, the heat beats down on your roof, often making the temperature in your home unbearable. By installing THERMGUARD, you will be able to prevent the heat flowing downwards into your cooler home by up to 89%! Depending on where you live, this will make your home naturally more comfortable to live in, or in very hot areas, reduce your air-conditioning bill considerably. In fact, the insulation will pay for itself within 3 years of installation.

During the freezing winter months, heat is generated in your home by using electric and gas heaters, or in your fire place. THERMGUARD will keep your home warm by retaining the heat generated inside the house, thus reducing your energy costs and improving your comfort. When fitted at 135mm, the reduction in heat flow in winter will be an amazing 92%!
