How Does Aerolite Work

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 manufactured from wool, gabardine or cashmere. Inside, they are lined with polyester or other materials which help to 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 delicate 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 keeping your home warm and cosy.

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

what is aerolite

What is Aerolite?

It is a superb ceiling insulation material that is pink in colour and has acoustic properties. Usually bonded with an inert thermosetting resin, the final product (Aerolite) is made available in compression packed rolls. Making it very easy for installers to cut and install the Acoustic Ceiling Insulation in your home. As this insulation is non-combustible Ceiling Insulation material, it has the highest fire rating classified as A1. Meaning the insulation material will not combust, melt or smoke. Will Not Burn.

Popularly known as Think Pink Aerolite (as a result of its pink colour), the insulation material has been used for the last 75 years to insulate homes from the harsh weather elements and prevent heat from escaping the interior of the house. As a result, Aerolite has helped to promote energy efficiency among homeowners by eliminating the need for running heaters and AC machines all day and night to keep the interior of the house warm (winter) and cooler (summer).

Select Aerolite Insulation With a Higher R-value

R-value refers to a measure of how well an insulating material can resist the conductive flow of heat. Popularly known as the Thermal Resistance of an insulating material, it takes into account the following factors: The thickness of the insulating material as well as density. Take note compressing the Aerolite will reduce the R-value to the compressed value.

When it comes to Aerolite thermal insulation – the wonder acoustic Ceiling Insulation material – this value measures the ability of the insulation material to resist the flow of heat. For better performance, it’s highly advisable to select Think Pink Aerolite insulation with a higher R-value. As a result, you and your family will enjoy the following benefits: Improves your indoor experience by absorbing noise from inside and outside your home.

Higher R-value saves more on high energy costs. Therefore, resulting in a cooler home in summer and a warmer home in winter. Insulation enhances the level of comfort in your home. Increases the value of your home which is a plus when it comes a time to sell.

aerolite has great sound proofing benefits

Sound proofs your home

The use of glass wool bonded together with the thermosetting resin has created an acoustic ceiling insulation material with astounding absorption properties. Installing aerolite in your ceiling will lower the level of sound entering or even leaving your home. The Insulation has been woven together allowing aerolite to absorb sound.

Aerolite has an NRC 1.05 (Noise Reduction Coefficient). As an acoustic ceiling insulation material, the insulation can absorb higher tones better than lower pitches.

aerolite insulation does not sustain vermin

Aerolite Does Not Attract Vermin

Traditional insulation materials have been known to be less efficient when it comes to reducing heat or retaining heat in the home.

Also, they act as a source of food for rodents and provide the perfect material for the whiskered intruders to use when making their nests.

The presence of the whiskered intruders in your ceiling poses a health hazard to your family. Not only will your family be prone to infections but the infections will escalate to disease.

Unlike traditional insulating materials, Aerolite stops the whiskered intruders in their tracks. It can achieve this by providing a poor breeding environment for the critters. Besides, the use of glass wool together with the thermosetting resin is not a good source of food for them.

Aerolite insulation also does not promote or allow the breeding of bacteria, fungi or mould.

It’s Non-combustible

Aerolite has a fire rating of A1 thanks to the use of glass wool as the main material. The material is bonded with a thermosetting resin which helps to ensure efficiency when it comes to insulating your home. Its A1 rating follows the Euroclass system as per EN 13501-1. Aerolite has also been certified to be fireproof under Class 1 fire index rating – SANS 10177 Part 3 and SANS 10177 Part 5. As a certified non-combustible insulating product, Aerolite cannot burn, melt or smoke.

Has a 25-50-year lifespan

Aerolite has a 25-50-year lifespan which means your ROI will be recovered in less than 3 years. In addition, the use of Aerolite as your preferred Ceiling Insulation material will recompense the change in temperature in your home.

This happens without your power bill increasing and the cooling systems not being used to enhance your indoor environment. In addition, Think Pink Aerolite does not have any ozone exhausting potential which means it will not harm the ozone layer. As a result, you will play your part in reducing damage to the environment. In fact, this insulation will give a lifetime of comfort and energy saving.

aerolite is non combustible

Don’t Let Your Home Go Up In Flames

Our homes regarded as the single most expensive investments we make for most average families. It is essential to make the right choice when insulating your roof space. Any Roof Insulation installed incorrectly is not only a waste of money it can also be a risk to your investment. (The Home)

As a result, installing Think Pink Aerolite with a Fire Rating A /1 MAKES SENSE. (AEROLITE WILL NOT BURN).

Consequently when installing insulation in the roof space ensure that your Roof Insulation is fitted above the insulation wherever possible.

Make Sure Your Installer Is Aware of These Dangers

It is, therefore, essential to install products like Aerolite with its class-leading Fire rating. Class A/1 means Aerolite will not BURN. In fact, this insulation has one of the best Fire ratings of all.

Installing low fire rated insulation products in the roof space is a risk. The Roof Space will reach temperatures more than 70 Degrees C. On hot summer days, electrical wiring, as well as downlight and fireplace flues, are also considerable risk.

Importantly knowing how to handle these factors is very important in any home. In fact, downlight reaches temperatures more than 250 DegC with most insulation types this would be a problem.

Some installers of low-quality insulation products with poor fire rating will often fit metal or plastic cones around the Insulation for some protection. The cones on its own is another fire hazard. As the heat build-up in the cone can start melting the wires of the downlight, and this can be a massive fire hazard in any home.

Think Pink has an A/1 fire rating so we will cut a small breathing hole as per the new SANS legislation in SA even though this insulation is non-combustible.

Whats so Awesome About Aerolite?

Keeps your home cool in summer and warm in winter.

The roof is exposed to the rays of the sun pretty much all day. As a result of the exposure, the roof space will absorb the heat and radiate it into the interior of the house.

As a result of installing Aerolite insulation in your home, it will prevent the transfer of heat from the outside into your home.

Insulation is installed on the ceiling, and will, therefore, act as a barrier between the roof and the interior of your home. As a result, you will enjoy the following additional benefits: Ensures consistent temperature all through the year. Eliminates the need for buying expensive AC. Reduces greenhouse gas emission and global warming effects

Can You Get By Without Installing Roof Insulation In Your Home?

Surely you can get by without installing Insulation in your Roof. However, this will be at a high cost.

Having the correct thickness Insulation installed will mean many years of energy saving for homeowners. In fact, all the Ceiling Insulation products that we stock will have a lifespan of at least 30 years. Therefore, resulting in a lifetime of energy saving and home comfort with insulation.

How Does Roof Insulation Work?

In fact, Roofing Insulation is about three main criteria. Let’s have a look at what this means and how this will affect your home. Sticking to these fundamental principles will give homeowners years of energy saving and home comfort.

Roof Insulation R-value

In fact, R-value today is essential. Having a low R-value means having low energy saving.

The higher the R-value, the more effective the insulation properties. R-value is the ability of given insulation to reduce the ability of heat loss or gain.

The higher the R-value, the better the insulation properties will be. In fact, R-value is the ability of given insulation to reduce heat flow in or out.

Install Roof Insulation Correctly Or Throw Money Away

As mentioned earlier on this page Roof Insulation Installed incorrectly is wasted money. Installing the insulation directly on the ceiling space between the main beams is essential. In fact, all Roof Insulation must be fitted directly on the ceiling between main beams. The entire roof space must be covered.

Do not install the Insulation following the roof pitch. In fact, installing insulation following the roof pitch will give a nice cool roof space but almost no benefit in the home.

However, this does not apply to what is referred to as a flat roof.

Install Roll Form Roof Insulation

Installing roll form insulation in your ceiling space makes sense as the insulation covers the entire roof. The main reason why we recommend roll form insulation is that this will not get affected by the wind. Roll form insulation is packed tightly between the beams to seal off correctly.

Blown-in loose fibre or cellulose will be affected by winds. In many homes where we remove these insulation types, we find the insulation has moved significantly. In fact, this leaves your home compromised with regards the insulation value. Loose paper or cellulose insulation is difficult to install the correct thickness in the roof space. The reason for this is we have to rely on the eye of the installer blowing the insulation. This, as we know, can’t be an exact science.

Roll form Insulation is a specific thickness and density, so you know what you get for your money. Aerolite Thermal Insulation Makes Sense. The Aerolite Thermal insulation products designed for optimum Thermal Insulation benefit. Installing Thermal Insulation without great thermal Insulation properties is a waste of money. All Thermal Insulation products are rated on R-value. In fact the higher the R-value, the better the insulation properties.

In fact the higher the R-value, the better the Think Pink Aerolite. Think Pink Thermal Insulation is available in thicknesses from 50mm to 135mm.
