Property developers, YoHome, envisioned their latest residential development in Benoni, Gauteng, as a lifestyle space where people can live and relax in a safe environment.

The modern, farm-style security development in Vlei Road, Rynfield consists of 29 three-bedroom, open-plan houses with spacious rooms, built-in cupboards, designer kitchens and modern finish es. Amenities include a communal area with a braai area, a kids play area and a garden nursery, facilities that will give the community a sense of belonging and contribute to its integration.

“Our vision is to design exceptional properties with the custom­er in mind,” says YoHome CEO, Stephen Duggan. “By providing an exceptional product of value and quality, our customers don ‘t have to compromise on style and quality.”

LAMBDABOARD was installed as a vertical cladding to insulate the walls and ensure all-round thermal comfort.
LAMBDABOARD boasts a superior R-value per 25mm thickness, and therefore the design U-value of the insulation system can be achieved with a minimum thickness.
LAMBDABOARD comes in dimensions of 20mm to 150mm in thickness, and 1 220mm in width. The length can be cut to a maximum of 13 500mm.


According to Duggan, YoHome has brought the number one method of residential construction in Latin America to Africa. “This con­struction method is three times quicker than traditional building methods and three times stronger than brick,” he says.


To meet the relevant thermal requirements as set out in SANS 10400XA, a suitable insulation product was needed.

“Long-term thermal performance was important to ensure that not only the first step was met (i.e. council approval), but  rather that a sustainable low-carbon footprint was achieved for optimal saving and low cost of ownership,” Duggan adds. “Only one product, Rigifoam’s LAMBDABOARD, ticked all of these boxes and passed with flying colours!”

“Rigifoam is extremely happy to be partnering with an innovative team that shares the same values and has its sights firmly set on the horizon,” affirms Lyle Jeffery from Rigifo am. WR
