All have very similar r-values, it is more a question of budget and preference. Isotherm is made by Brits, they are a well-known and recognised insulation supplier in South Africa. Aerolite is made by Isover who is also a well-known company worldwide. Think Green Insulation is made only in Johannesburg.
