As per the latest analysis of sophisticated satellite data taken taken from June 1 to August 31 this year by Greenpeace, Mpumalanga is the “worst” nitrogen dioxide (NO2) air pollution hotspot across six continents. It shows that Johannesburg and Pretoria are also affected by NO2 pollution‚ which is blown across from Mpumalanga by regular easterly winds. The senior climate and energy campaign manager for Greenpeace Africa says that air pollution is a global health crisis, with up to 95% of the world’s population breathing unsafe air. Our government urgently needs to come up with an action plan that protects millions of people. But it is not only the Government who can develop a plan, it is you and Volcanic Wool who both can do it today. Being a nature creation, Volcanic Wool Product help to decrease the harmful emissions into the atmosphere and the Greenhouse effect. When you use our product to insulate your home, you will use less energy to cool and/or heat your house. By doing this you will contribute into new and better ecology-friendly world where your kids will breath in fresh and clean air.

When talking about noise, the first question raised in our minds is most commonly external noise on a Friday night coming from loud music blasting from the neighbor’s party next door or the sound of bikes and cars driving along the road at full speed.

Another devastating fire accident has occured this Thursday, July the 26th at a shopping center in Boksburg. The complex is a superior decor, fashion, medical, health and retail centre. The cause of the fire is not known and three shops were completely destroyed due to the fire. No injuries or fatalities were reported but the financial loss due to inventory, equipment and infrastructure being destroyed was truly devasting to the businesses impacted. Volcanic Wool products are designed to combat the issues faced from the above scenario. VW insulation can be used for industrial, private and commercial buildings. The melting temperature of VW insulation products of 1000ºC and its A1 fire rating which drastically limits flame spread would have made a material difference, allowing the structure to remain stable for a longer period of time and limit the flame spreading to additional shops and businesses.

Ultimate building industry development makes us face not only the benefits but the biggest fire incidents as well. Our country is also in the list. Last October a chain store in Cape Town has incurred a loss of several million rands after a 1‚000 m2 warehouse burned down. Fortunately, this time it was without fire deaths. The entire premises were destroyed and the steel structure have been compromised. According to the city’s fire and rescue spokesman‚ four fire engines‚ three water tankers and 32 firefighters were dispatched to extinguish a blaze that engulfed a 1UP Cash & Carry warehouse in the Kraaifontein area. But with the fire like this (even without the deaths) it is not only the premises that you loose. In the situation of the water crisis and the water restrictions implemented in September the issue is quite dramatic. All this makes us think about the right insulation material to be used both for industrial and civil construction activities. Volcanic stone wool insulation products are made of 100% stone that is the natural fire obstruction material. It can stand the temperature up to 1000ºC and it can retain the fire spread saving lives and properties. You can learn more about it here
