Imison‚Äôs technology reduces your carbon footprint. Large developments could benefit from carbon credits and trading. Imison offers to pursue the possibility for prospective clients via its partnerships.
IMISON AND THE ENVIRONMENT
a.¬†¬† ¬†Efficient Materials
i.¬†¬† ¬†Replaces bricks: Imison uses an Expanded Polystyrene core inside building panels.¬† This eliminates the use of bricks and reduces cement usage by up to 90 percent ‚Äď materials that cause 7 percent of environmental greenhouse gases.
ii.¬†¬† ¬†Energy efficiency:
- EPS is accepted by the European Union‚Äôs standards as an energy efficient construction material.
- The thermal qualities of EPS are also recognised by the SANS-204 standard for energy efficient materials¬† - published by the SABS recently.
- Imison‚Äôs wall panels have the following thermal ratings:
a.¬†¬† ¬†R-value:¬† 3,05 m2 C/W
b.¬†¬† ¬†U value:¬† 0,31 W/m2 C
iii.¬†¬† ¬†Temperature control: these properties make homes up to 6 degrees warmer in winter and 2 percent cooler in summer (interior temperature ‚Äď without ceiling insulation and with standard¬† doors/windows), leading to electricity savings.
iv.¬†¬† ¬†Weight:¬† Imison‚Äôs panels are significantly lighter than bricks, requiring smaller vehicles for transportation with corresponding savings in fuel and emissions.
v.¬†¬† ¬†Moisture insulation: Imison‚Äôs EPS panels give walls complete insulation against water (rain) transfer, preventing mould and rot.
vi.¬†¬† ¬†Acoustic rating: Imison‚Äôs EPS panels have the same acoustic rating as a brick/mortar wall (resistance to sound transfer).
vii.¬†¬† ¬†SABS, approved.
