Solutions for Sustainable Buildings

The quality of the insulation products that are specified, as well as the density and thickness ratios, will determine the efficiency of the final installation.

Why Choosing Quality Insulation Products Matters?
Global Innovative Building Systems and Isover have become renowned within the South African Insulation industry. While there are numerous buzz words that architects as well as design and construction professionals hear on a daily basis (such as global warming, green councils and energy-efficiency), there are still a few basic principles that give clarity and meaning to it all.

Compliance with specifications, monitoring of thermal values and fire ratings are all high priority within the building industry. It’s true that many things can be done in order to meet green building specifications and achieve certifications, but few things are as efficient as the use of insulation on projects.


Benefits And Features:

  • Energy-efficient: Meets required standards by reducing heat loss/ gain due to the inherent thermal insulation properties.
  • Acoustic properties: Offer exceptional acoustic properties and enhances indoor environmental quality by the absorption of noise.
  • Fire properties: Non-combustible material tested EN standards and achieves a Class 1 fire index rating.
  • Environmental sustainability: Glasswool is made from a combination of naturally occurring silica, fluxing agents and up to 80% recycled glass. Glasswool has a zero ozone depleting potential (ODP) and no CFCs or HCFCs are produced in the production process.


Global Innovative Building Systems offers a wide range of Insulation products that cover a variety of applications where essential savings can be implemented. Be it in low temperature building applications which encompass the insulation of ceilings, factory roofs, HVAC or air-conditioning, and acoustics or high temperature applications in general industry including boilers, turbines, steam piping and ovens, to name but a few.

All technical information is available in order to make an educated choice of product to fulfil and satisfy the philosophy of energy savings and reduce energy consumption.

Global Innovative Building Systems has been supplying insulation products and providing technical support to the South African building industry for over 30 years, and they are looking to expand into Africa within the near future.
