STC was calculated based on the test performed by Mechanical Engineering Testing & Consulting at the University of Adelaide. Once Green Insulation™ is installed within plasterboard or brick veneer walls. Our STC values are competitive to the sound barrier products in market.

Fall arrest Properties

Reflecta-Cell and Reflecta-Guard reflective aluminium bubble foil insulation both use a double high strenth scrim to deliver the toughest, strongest and most durable foil insulation available anywhere.

To test the performance of Green Insulation™ to be used as a fall arrest barrier, tests were conducted in accordance with the Australian Standard AS4040.4–2006: (Resistance to impact). The test is intended to simulate the accidental falling of a person onto a plastic building sheet incorporated into a roof structure. The test method specifies a bag with a nominal 300mm diameter base, filled with 25kg of dry sand to be dropped from a height of 2.5m above the impact position of the specimen.

Compliance:

Reflecta-Guard™ & Reflecta-Cell® resisted impact of a 25kg sandbag from a drop height of 2.5 metres, at the first impact position, when laid over a metal roof with purlins set at a 1500mm span at both 0 and 18 degrees roof pitches. This included the use of fasteners, 10gx40mm wafer-head self drilling screws, spaced at a nominal 160mm centres, using 50mm flat washers, along the width of the material or sheet end at the roof edge or end purlin.

Fasteners and washers were also located at every other purlin, at the sheet edge. The insulation material was fixed to the roof structure to give a 50mm sag at the span midpoint, below the horizontal plane of the top face of the purlin.
Green Insulation™ strongly recommends that you refer to your local Occupational Health and Safety guidelines, to use our products as a fall arrest.

 

Important note about Reflecta-Shed. We do not provide test results for Reflecta-Shed. Reflecta-Shed uses similar outside aluminium layers, and also our patented protective coating. The main differentiation between Reflecta-Shed insulation and our other products is that it does not include the centre fire retardant. Reflecta-Shed is NOT compliant for BCA uses. However, Reflecta-Shed is a purpose manufactured high quality, high performance foil insulation specifically designed for value when insulating sheds. Most sheds constructed privately do not need to be BCA compliant, Reflecta-Shed is your best alternative here.
