How To Install Aerolite DIY

How Does Aerolite Insulation Improve Indoor Temperature?

Many homeowners ask this question. Historical surveys and data show that 40% of all heat movement is via the ceiling into the roof space. We lose a further 35% via the windows.

So when the heat build-up in the roof spaces enters the home via the ceiling, indoor temperature can be increased from 5-8 degrees. Fitting 135mm Aerolite Insulation will block 90% of the heat gain via the ceiling.

We will reduce heat loss and gain with windows by either having Solar Film Installed or heavy curtains to block this heat gain or loss. Unless your home has double glazed windows, in this case, you won’t have window heat and loss.

The benefits of eco-friendly insulation


Because Aerolite blocks 90% of heat flow in or out of the house via the ceiling, we are improving indoor temperature by 5-8 degrees in summer and winter. We lose more than 35% of all heat entering the home via the ceiling. It, therefore, makes sense that 135mm Aerolite ceiling insulation will block that heat loss.

Installed R-value of 3.78 to block 90% of all heat via the ceiling entering the home. And acoustic benefits and soundproofing with an NRC 1.1 Noise Reduction Coefficient.

The Aerolite is Non-combustible with a Class A/A 1/1 fire rating.

SANS compliant insulation saves energy by reducing heating and cooling by creating a more even indoor temperature.

Aerolite is the only insulation specified for Schools, Hospitals and Shopping malls because it is the safest insulation for areas with high volumes of people.

Glasswool insulation does not support vermin. 

There is a world of difference between SABS approved, and SABS tested. Most manufacturers claim SABS approval for SABS tested insulation. Aerolite is one of the few manufacturers that are SABS approved.

All thermal Insulation Products must achieve specific R-values for the region. As of January 2012, Thermal Insulation in roofs is compulsory in all new homes.

Biosoluble fibres are guaranteed asbestos and ceramic fibre-free. These fibres dissolve in bodily fluids such as those found in the pulmonary alveoli. They are less biopersistent, meaning they are eliminated more quickly by the body while maintaining their excellent thermal insulation and fire protection qualities.

Aerolite Insulation does not readily absorb water or retain water.

No environmental impact on the manufacture and delivery of Aerolite Insulation.

The production of Aerolite does not contribute to Global Warming. The insulation reduces global warming with many years of energy saving.

Aerolite Insulation Improves Indoor Temperature 4 - 8 degrees


Because Aerolite improves indoor temperature in the home by blocking the heat flow up or down during summer and winter, the Think Pink reduces your heating and cooling needs.  As a direct result, Aerolite results in a reduced need for heating and cooling. 


1. Insulation R-value

Importantly R-value is what it’s all about. Therefore the higher the r-value of the roof insulation, the better. An R-value of 3.70 achieved on the 135mm Aerolite will reduce heat flow up or down as much as 90%. 

2. Insulation Fire Rating

Equally important is fire rating. For the record, Think Pink Aerolite has a Class AA 1/1 Non-combustible. Also, I believe it is the only South African manufactured thermal insulation for roofs with this rating. 

3. Home Comfort

We can improve indoor comfort with a more even temperature in summer and winter. For this reason, installing thermal insulation with a higher R-value is essential. And this will enhance indoor temperature by 5-8 degrees.

4. Safety Of Insulation

Aerolite is Hygroscopic and Biosoluble. The safety of the insulation is essential. For example, the World Health Organisation gives Aerolite Insulation a “111” rating. It is one of the safest thermal insulation products for homes

How Aerolite Insulation Works in homes

How Soft Touch Aerolite Insulation Works

Aerolite Soft Touch insulation provides high resistance to heat flow and sound through the building envelope. It limits the impact of the outside temperature and noise, helping maintain a stable and comfortable living environment. We know hot air rises and cold air sinks. Essentially, the Insulation creates a barrier between the hot air and the cooler indoor temperature in the roof space.

Aerolite is thermal and acoustic ceiling insulation that maintains a comfortable living environment, keeping you cooler in summer, warmer in winter, and safer, quieter and happier all year round.

Selecting the right roof insulation is essential to achieve the benefits of thermal insulation.

  1. Ensure your Aerolite has the requite R-value. (Up and Down R-value)
  2. It is essential to install thermal insulation between the beams to achieve the best result. Several factors in the roof space can and will affect the performance of the Thermal Insulation.
  3. Lastly, the most important factor is the Fire Rating. Insulation with an A/1 fire rating is the best.

Firstly, the World Health Organization gives Aerolite Insulation a safety rating: 111. As a result, the insulation is as safe, if not safer, than some pickled vegetables.

Secondly, there are many health benefits to installing quality insulation in the roof space. So how will there be a health benefit in the home with insulation?

As we know, insulation acts as a barrier between the cold in winter and the scorching summer days. Installing Aerolite improves indoor temperature by 4 – 8 degrees in summer and winter. Reduce the impact of flue or colds at bay with a more even indoor temperature

When it is cold out, we most certainly don’t go out in the cold underdressed as we end up in the doctor’s rooms sooner rather than later. The same applies to your home. Keeping a more moderate even temperature reduces the potential for allergies and flues and colds.

Additionally, the use of whirlybird roof ventilators will reduce the flow of dust in the roof space.

We must insulate all-new homes following the new SANS legislation. At this point, the legislation does not affect the thermal insulation of existing homes. However, there is a push to have existing homes insulated at the end of the sale. 

  • If your home is uncomfortably hot in summer, ceiling insulation will reduce heat gain via the roof space by 90%. 
  • Once again, your home’s cold ceiling insulation will reduce heat loss via the ceiling by 90% in winter.
  • Noisy Neighbors. In addition to the comfort factor, Noise Pollution is third. Without a doubt, Aerolite Insulation is one of the most advanced insulation materials for noise reduction.
  • So your energy bill is too high. For example, 135mm Aerolite Insulation will reduce the need for expensive heating and cooling.  For this reason, Think Pink Insulation will pay for itself in 3 years on energy saving alone.

On a cold day or night, just before you step out the door, what is the one thing that assures you of warmth and comfort?

You are right, a coat.

Winter jackets are manufactured from wool, gabardine or cashmere. Inside, they are lined with polyester or other materials, which help keep heat close to the body.

Just like you need a coat on a cold day or night, your home also needs to be enveloped with insulating materials to keep the cold away and retain heat within.

Insulation has been around since the pre-historic people built shelters or sought natural refuge in caves to protect themselves from the elements.

Today, you can create a barrier between the harsh weather outside and the environment in your home with aerolite insulation. As the perfect ceiling insulation with acoustic properties, it will protect you and your family from extreme temperatures, plus keep your home warm and cosy.

Want to enjoy tremendous energy savings for the next 50 years? Think Pink thermal insulation is the right solution for you.
