One very important part of the new Sans legislation on R-value of Roof Insulation and Ceiling Insulation. New legislation covers the whole of South Africa. There are compulsory R-values for the different regions in South Africa. Read more on the important facts of Roof Insulation R-value 

How Can Compressing Insulation Alter the R-value? This is important!

R-value of insulation can be significantly compromised if it is not installed properly. Compressing or using any other method to decrease the thickness of insulation decreases its ability to effectively resist conduction. Anytime insulation is compressed, such as when it is stuffed into a too small area, it is unable to give you the full value of its R-value. Insulation that has baggage or boxes packed on top of it will automatically reduce the Insulation R-value to that of the compressed thickness. All the more reason to get experienced, skilled installers like Roof Insulation to do it for you.Aerolite Think Pink must never be compressed as this will effect the R-value.
