ISOBOARD CEILINGS SOUTH AFRICA
In commercial and residential properties, heat flow can be a major problem. Selecting an insulation product to reduce heat flow is crucial for comfort as well as lowering heating and cooling bills. ISOBOARD ceilings are one of the products that can be used to keep you cooler in summer and warmer in winter. While reducing energy bills.

Most of the external heat that flows into a building comes in through the roof. So it makes sense to reduce the flow of heat through the roof structure as much as possible. ISOBOARD ceilings can be used to enhance energy efficiency as well as enhance the visual look of the ceiling.
WHAT IS ISOBOARD?
ISOBOARD is the name of the insulation product. ISOBOARD is a high-quality, rigid, extruded Polystyrene foam manufactured in South Africa. Providing much higher R-values than a standard rhino board ceiling. It is manufactured with microscopic gas-filled cells which resemble a honeycomb. This also gives it strength, making it rigid.
ISOBOARD CEILING R-VALUES
Below is a list of the ISOBOARD R-values available in South Africa. The thicker the product, the higher the R-value and cost. Take that into consideration when selecting the thickness.
- 25mm – 1.04
- 30mm – 1.25
- 40mm – 1.66
- 50mm – 2.08
- 60mm – 2.50
- 70mm – 2.92
- 80mm – 3.33
WATER AND WATER VAPOUR
ISOBOARD will only absorb 0.20% water by volume. Heat flow resistance will reduce by a maximum of 3%. Its closed cellular structure provides exceptional resistance to water vapour permeability. Heat flow resistance due to vapour penetration can reduce by a maximum of 8%.
BENEFITS OF ISOBOARD CEILINGS IN SOUTH AFRICA
ISOBOARD ceilings have many benefits over traditional ceilings. A traditional ceiling does not offer much of an R-value or insulation. Although it costs more than a traditional ceiling, it’s worth the price.
- Extruded Polystyrene foam offers low thermal conductivity
- High resistance to water vapour diffusion
- High resistance to water absorption
- The density distribution is consistent
- Ageing resistance
- Resistance to bacteria
- Resistance to microorganism growth
- Its a strong and sturdy product
Making use of extruded polystyrene foam is a cost-effective way to insulate. The ISOBOARD prices will vary on the thickness and R-value of the product. The thicker the board, the higher the cost of ISOBOARD per board. Another thing to consider is the installation difficulty. Installers will charge more if it’s in a difficult spot to install.
