The application of Foamular in Green Roof Garden systems  was the highlight topic at a seminar presented to the Australian Institute of Architects, Newcastle branch, on the evening of February 23.

Foamular Product Manager Mike Nagle addressed the environmental benefits of using Foamular insulation material in the application of Green Roof Gardens to ensure maximum energy efficiency in the systems. It was an informative presentation, as the gathered architects learnt why Foamular continues to grow and present itself as the chosen 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. Since 2008 City Councils and influential business groups in Australia have become active in promoting the benefits of green roofs. As well as the environmental advantages, green roof gardens display architectural prowess, brilliance and are physically appealing to the eye.

More and more architects and builders are choosing Foamular as their preference due to its ability to reduce moisture absorption, maintain its thermal and physical properties whilst preserving its high R Value.
