Summit XPS is part of Swartland’s Summit range of insulation and decorative products, and its commitment to 100% local, green products.
Insulation is no longer just a nice-to-have: SANS 10400-XA building regulations stipulate that proper insulation is a legal requirement for any new structure.
Daneel Pretorius, Category Manager for Swartland’s Summit range, says XPS (Extruded polystyrene) foam board creates a single layer of thermal- and moisture protection on walls, roofs, or floors, greatly boosting buildings’ overall energy efficiency.
“XPS’s production process results in a closed-cell structure with excellent long-term strength and durability, making it suitable for a wide gamut of commercial, residential, agricultural, and industrial thermal insulation applications,” says Daneel. He describes its benefits:
Daneel says, “Insulation is the easiest, most economical way to reduce energy consumption for heating and cooling a new or existing building. Improve its insulation before investing in air-conditioning units, heaters, or even in green sources of energy, such as solar panels or solar water-heating.”
He concludes: “The Summit XPS Insulation Board offers excellent long-term thermal resistance. It offers the best-in-market performance and national after-sales service, which the building industry has come to expect from Swartland.”
