One of the best practices to reduce energy loss is good insulation, and if this practice is ignored the optimisation of the HVAC equipment is defeated. “Insulation is not just a peripheral but rather is one of the critical components of HVAC equipment, without which the purpose of cooling or heating is defeated,” said Rizwan Shaikhani, Group Director of Rubber World Industries. “It also impacts energy-efficiency goals and acoustics.”

Elaborating on the benefits of insulation, Shaikhani said: “Good insulation prevents energy loss and optimises the equipment. If proper insulation is used, it also reduces utility bills. Considering the efforts invested by the UAE government to address the growing need for energy efficiency, insulation plays a key role to contribute towards this campaign.”

Highlighting the essential characteristics of the insulation solution offered by Rubber World Industries, he added: “The Gulf-O-Flex Tube insulation is an environmentally free, flexible elastomeric thermal insulation. It is manufactured without the use of CFCs, HCFCs and HFCs. It is also formaldehyde free, dust free, fibre free and resists mould and mildew.”

On the safety aspect of the product, Shaikhani said, “Gulf-O-Flex sheet insulations have a flame-spread index of less than 25 and a smoke-developed index of less than 50, as tested by a third-party testing lab.”

Speaking on how the company has evolved in the region, Shaikhani said: “Over the years, our philosophy has always been based on our commitment to research and develop high-performance products and engineered solutions. We have always used cutting-edge technology to ensure the longevity of the product.”
