Foamular – green roof garden presentation

Applying Foamular into Green Roof garden systems was the key topic at a seminar presented to the Newcastle branch of Australian Institute of Architects.

On the eve of February 23, Foamular Product Manager Mike Nagle imparted his knowledge about the environmental benefits of green roofs by using Foamular Insulation material to guarantee maximum energy efficiency in the structure of Green Roof Gardens. It was an informative presentation, as the gathered architects began to recognise why Foamular continues to grow and present itself as the favoured brand when it comes to Extruded Polystyrene Insulation.

Glen Spicer, the Chairman of the Newcastle Division, Australian Institute of Architects, was impressed with the information provided on Foamular and insulation:

‘Mike provided an excellent presentation at the New Technologies in Building Products Seminar. It was very informative and provided both good background information on the Insulation industry as well as on specific Austech insulation products.’

Green roofs have been increasing in popularity in Australia over the past 10 years. Leading business groups and Australian wide city councils have been dynamic in endorsing the benefits of green roofs since 2008. Green roofs not only offer environmental advantages but also exhibit architectural brilliance and are physically captivating.

Green Roofs are just one of the many applications of the Extruded Polystyrene Foamular. As more architects and builders are opting for Foamular over its competitors, it has become clear that Foamular is superior in the reduction of moisture absorption, its high R values and ability to maintain its thermal and physical properties.

More information is available via the Foamular website including the application of Green Roof Gardens. Foamular is exclusively available throughout Australia from Austech Building Products.
