BY MAKING THE SWITCH TO EARTHWOOL
Can insulation really feel THIS good?
Knauf Insulation’s new Earthwool® products don’t look or feel like any insulation you’ve ever experienced, that’s because the natural brown colour represents a level of sustainability and ease of handling never before achieved with glasswool in Australia. The colour and super-soft feel of this glasswool comes from a revolutionary sustainable binder which does not contain the petro-based chemicals, added formaldehyde or arti cial colours commonly used in glasswool insulation.
Polyair Performa XHD is a high grade radiant heat barrier and extra heavy duty sarking in one product. It boosts the thermal performance of roofs and walls while improving the comfort and energy e ciency of a home.
Polyair Performa XHD is a multi layered thermo reflective insulation and extra heavy duty sarking in one product. Its special antiglare coated foil reflects up to 95% of the sun’s radiant heat while the foam inner core and inward facing foil reduces heat transfer through the product.
Polyair Performa XHD is manufactured in Australia under the quality management system of ISO 9001:2008 and the environmental management system of ISO 14001:2004. The products are manufactured to be extra heavy duty and are designed speci cally for the hot Australian climate.
A patented multi pure aluminium foils incorporated onto double 8mm thermo cellular (Fire Retardant) polyethylene bubbles, with a unique internal reflection mechanism in each bubbles structure, with high performance copper aluminium foil on top side, and silver aluminium foil on bottom side. Optional: 18 microns aluminium and reinforced net.
Both, external and internal aluminium surfaces with and without copper antiglare, reflecting 95% and 97% of radiant heat respectively. PolynumTM Ultra products are made of a unique Foil-bubbles-Foil-bubbles-Foil structure providing a built-in HIR (High Internal Reflection) with the aim to minimizing Radiation, Conduction and Convection heat transfer. PolynumTM products are easy to transport, store, handle and install. PolynumTM superb thermal performances against heat flow provide excellent energy efficient solutions. PolynumTM comply with mandatory Australian Standards and Building CodeofAustraliacertificationbenchmarks.PolynumTM productshavebeen certified by Ecospecifier and are engineered to comply with the ABGR and Green Star Rating Scheme.
Polynum Ultra is the 16mm thick foil great under metal roofs to give a thermal break.
The Hot House (below) is a test box i built to show how much a foil barrier improves insulation with 15 deg indifference after 30 minute of 250 watt heat lamp
Another product we tend to use is Polyair Performa made by Bradford.
