Sisalation Reflective Foil Radiant Heat Barrier
Sisalation significantly resists radiant heat flow due to its reflectivity, low radiant heat absorption and low emissivity (ability to re-radiate heat). Installed in conjunction with an airspace, shiny foil surface is an excellent reflector of all long wave and radiant heat – as much as 95% of radiant heat is kept out. Additionally, it is a poor re-radiator of heat. Should it be heated or come into close or physical contact with a warm surface, it will only re-radiate about 5% of the heat, compared with approximately 90% that ordinary surfaces would radiate at the same temperature. Sisalation aluminium foil insulation is manufactured according to ISO 9002 quality systems and is a SABS approved product. It has two firsts behind its name – first to be awarded the SABS mark and first to produce a fire retardant product in South Africa.Tried and tested for over 4 decades, Sisalation has stood the test of time and maintained its position as a leader in the reflective foil insulation market. It is specified by builders, architects and quantity surveyors with confidence.
Sisalation Water Vapour Barrier, Dust-Proofer and Under Tile Wind/Airflow Retarder
Installed as an under tile membrane, Sisalation has the added benefit of being an insulator, dust-proofer, airflow retarder and water vapour barrier all in one replacing the need to install an under-tile waterproof membrane.
