Sisalation has proved effective and beneficial in building in the comfort factor, keeping the home and office space cooler in summer and warmer in winter. This increases the productivity of staff in factories and industrial and commercial buildings.
Sisalation also prevents moisture from penetrating into the ceiling by outside weather conditions such as rain, humidity or precipitation – all factors which negatively impact on the performance and durability of a building and its component parts. Sisalation will additionally inhibit the growth of mould and mildew and decrease the effects of damp which may lead to serious illnesses or structure failure.
Dust-proofs – keeps allergies under control
Keeping the building as dust-free as possible can be a crucial factor in reducing allergens in the air we breathe, thus reducing allergy and asthma symptoms.
Fire retardant – improves fire safety
Sisalation fire retardant products have been tested by the SABS and have a fire performance classification of B/B1/2/HV -SP&USP – with or without sprinklers in horizontal and vertical installations
The use of Sisalation will impact positively on the environment. It reduces environmental pollution, and the consumption of natural resources and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. It also reduces noise pollution by retarding under tile wind and airflow and contains no ozone depleting substances.
Economical – it saves money
Easy to install Sisalation is user-friendly, maintenance-free and long-lasting. Used as an exposed roof lining, the foil’s high reflectivity greatly improves lighting.
Energy efficient – invisible energy saver
It is estimated that approximately 80% of the energy bill of a homeowner is due to heating costs, therefore reducing energy needs makes financial sense. Sisalation reduces the amount of energy needed to heat or cool a building, decreasing electricity usage and subsequently bills and paying for itself over and over again.
