ISOTHERM is a thermal insulation made from PET bottles which have been recycled. It’s a non-toxic thermally-bonded polyester which makes it great for the environment. ISOTHERM is perfect for roofs, walls, hot water pipes and geysers. Here are the three most useful applications:

Thermal Insulation for Ceilings

When ISOTHERM is used as a thermal insulation for roofs it saves a lot of energy and on top of this is maintenance free. It will help to keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter, saving on heating and cooling costs. ISOTHERM, as well as being safe to install is also very easy to install as it comes in rolls of 750mm and 1200mm wide rolls; perfect for normal housing construction. Installing ISOTHERM thermal insulation for ceilings is extremely easy if you follow these easy steps taken from the official

ISOTHERM website:

• Measure the distance between the roof beams or trusses and select the right roll of Isotherm.
• Cut the ISOTHERM to the correct size before entering the roof space with industrial scissors or shears.
• Make sure you only walk on the crossbeams and balancing boards and not on the ceiling boards.
• Position the ISOTHERM correctly above and in close contact with the ceiling ensuring it fits snugly between the roof beams and trusses.
• Ensure continuous insulation by carefully butting the ends of the rolls together or overlapping them. check more information from
• Make sure you allow a 150mm gap around flue pipes, ceiling fans and recessed lights.
• Wrap ISOTHERM around geysers and water pipes to increasing energy saving efficiency.
• Don’t block ventilation points with insulation.
• Use any off-cuts to fill in gaps, crevices and corners.
• Don’t put ISOTHERM in direct contact with metal chimney fabrications or flues.
• Don’t forget to insulate under the geyser and above the trap door.

Thermal Insulation for Walls

The reasons for using ISOTHERM in your walls are the same as why you would use it as thermal insulation for roofs. Just like with your roof, installing insulation in your walls will help to keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter helping to reduce energy costs. When it comes to walls ISOTHERM is designed for hollow walls such as interior dry walls, timber walls, and steel frame walls. When installing in these hollow walls you don’t have to worry about ISOTHERM sagging as it is specifically designed not to. Installation of ISOTHERM in walls is very much the same as when installing it in your ceiling with one extra point to remember; be sure to position the ISOTHERM behind conduits, cables and plug points so that they remain exposed.visit this link for more details.

Geyser Blanket

Another great use for ISOTHERM is as a great geyser blanket. By keeping your geyser insulated, the water won’t have to be reheated constantly meaning you will use less electricity. Geysers can account for a large portion of your electricity bill so it’s a good idea to reduce this with insulation. By installing ISOTHERM around your geyser and pipes you can save yourself money.
ISOTHERM has many uses from thermal insulation and walls to helping make your geyser more energy efficient. As well as saving you money it also helps to save the environment making this thermal insulation for ceilings a great choice for any home, whatever your specific needs may be. more ISOTHERM FACTS
