The non-combustible metal building insulation solution that meets legislative requirements

In the fast-paced world of modern construction, energy efficiency has become a paramount concern for builders and property owners alike. The drive to create sustainable structures has led to the development of innovative solutions that not only enhance energy efficiency but also promote cost savings and environmental preservation. In this regard, Isover’s Factorylite® and the AshGrid™ Spacer System by Ash & Lacy emerge as an innovative solution in the realm of metal buildings, offering an array of benefits that cater to the specific needs of factories, warehouses, and other industrial structures.

At the heart of this cutting-edge solution lies the commitment to energy efficiency in line with the SANS 10400-XA legislative requirements. Factorylite® and the AshGrid™ Spacer System address the ever-increasing demand for reducing energy usage and conserving resources. The Factorylite® product range stands out with excellent thermal insulation properties, providing thermal comfort to building users in energy-efficient manner. Along with thermal performance, this ggglasswool insulation is available in white metalised foil, black metalised foil and reinforced foil facings, providing builders with versatile options to meet the aesthetic requirements of different projects.

Complementing Factorylite®, the AshGrid™ Spacer System plays a crucial role in optimising energy efficiency within metal buildings. As required by SANS 10400-XA, this mechanical spacer system ensures that the insulation is installed correctly, eliminating any gaps or thermal bridges that could lead to energy wastage. By creating an effective thermal envelope, the AshGrid™ Spacer System and Factorylite® prevent the escape of energy, keeping the interior comfortable and protected from external weather conditions.

Beyond its energy-saving capabilities, the Factorylite® and AshGrid™ combination also enhances the overall sustainability of metal buildings. The durability and longevity of these materials reduce the need for frequent replacements, minimising waste generation and conserving valuable resources in the long run. Factorylite® and the AshGrid™ Spacer System is a non-combustible solution, along with being sustainable, this solution offers a layer of safety to the building users. In conclusion, the Factorylite® and AshGrid™ Spacer System by Ash & Lacy present a compelling case for the adoption of energy-efficient practices in metal buildings. Along with an array of facing options catering to diverse metal building projects, Factorylite® excels in providing effective thermal insulation while significantly reducing energy consumption and associated costs. The AshGrid™ Spacer System ensures proper installation of the bulk insulation, guaranteeing the optimisation of the building’s energy efficiency and overall sustainability. By incorporating this innovative solution into the construction of factories, warehouses, and other metal structures, we can pave the way for a more sustainable future in the construction industry.
