An overview of our turnkey solution

Intastor’s unique advantage is the ability to provide custom design consultation, installation and insulation to match specific client needs. Our turnkey services include:


Intastor’s manufacturing capacity is approximately 30 000m2 of panels each month, based on a single shift, 5-day week basis. We manufacture insulated modular panels, insulated roofing panels, modular wall panels for roofing systems used in cladding walls.

Our expanded polystyrene insulation is manufactured by our sister company, Isolite at their plant whose capacity is more than 450m3 per day, equivalent to 12 000m2 of 40mm panels per day with a state of the art block mould efficiently producing high quality EPS blocks

We are your ideal choice for temperature controlled space enclosures. For your next project which needs include the design, manufacture and installation of insulated panels for refrigerated or environmentally controlled space, contact us.

Roofing and Sheeting Solutions

Intastor produces insulated roofing panels with the highest structural strength, ease of installation and aesthetics.  This allows clients to fast track the cladding of roofs without the expense of extensive supporting trusses and beams.  Recommended spans typically conform to the standards set by the TPMA.  The sheeting product likewise compliments the roofing system for use in cladding roofs, walls and other vertical structures and can be produced in two different profiles by simply placing the outer finish of the material on the reverse side.


Intastor’s sister company IsoLite provides the insulation manufactured at its state of the art fully automated block moulding plant. The result is consistently high quality blocks within the specifications set by the industry.  These blocks are then passed through a fully automated cutting line which uses vibrating heated cutting wires.  This produces a high quality finish to the final product without corrugation of any kind.  IsoLite is a member of EP SASA and is certified to conform to their standards.

Fire and safety

Extensive testing has been done on the structure by FireLab who performed a full scale burnout test to simulate the behaviour of the structure when on fire.  Items of furniture were placed inside the building and set alight by simulating a typical paraffin stove fire.  The tests indicate that the structure allows adequate time for occupants to escape from the building and that the structure only collapsed after 25 minutes.

Skill development and training

The ICE TRA low cost housing project, not only provides an interim solution for the transition of people from shack dwelling to traditional housing, but also provides an opportunity for skills development in the poorer areas of South Africa and its neighbouring countries through local community projects. We take pride in supporting the development of skills training through our training programs.

Qualified and knowledgeable staff

Our qualified professional staff brings years of hands-on industry experience and is dedicated to stringent quality control, superior performance and customer delight, right from the  planning stages to project completion.
