THERMGUARD is an established and trusted thermal insulation product manufactured in South Africa. Since production began in 1984, THERMGUARD has been successfully insulating buildings for 33 years in households and industry, countrywide. It is truly the tried and tested frontrunner, eco-friendly product that has stood the test of time.
THERMGUARD Cellulose Fibre Insulation is made from recycled newsprint mixed with additives to make it fire retardant and insect and rodent resistant. Thousands of tonnes of newsprint that could otherwise have been sent to fill up landfills are milled into our light cellulose insulation product with optimal density, which is blown onto the ceiling in your roof. Cellulose insulation fits effectively into all the hard to reach nooks and crannies, ensuring the best possible coverage for superior results.
Why is Insulation Important to You?
Ceiling insulation reduces the flow of heat through the roof by up to 92%. By preventing heat gains and losses, THERMGUARD will keep your home naturally temperate and more comfortable year round. You will not have to rely on your air-conditioners and heaters as much, if at all, and this translates into significant savings on electricity bills.
As Green as it Gets
THERMGUARD is remarkably good for the environment. Not only does it slow the burning of fossil fuels by saving electricity in your home, it is made from 80% recycled newsprint, which could otherwise go into landfills. THERMGUARD also has an extremely low embodied energy. This prevention of greenhouse gases at both the consumer and producer end of the product lifecycle is known as a “double green” effect. THERMGUARD is delivered to you in bags made from recycled plastic, making every aspect of our product environmentally friendly.
THERMGUARD has a countrywide network of approved contractors who install our product according to our instructions. Assessment of your ceiling, safe covering of downlighters and appropriate placement of insulation are all key areas where our professionals have a wealth of expertise. Ceiling insulation is only as good as its installation because any gaps would decrease the effectiveness of the material installed. Don’t allow anyone but the best into your home. THERMGUARD is equipped with 33 years of industry knowledge and experience.
