With the development of Pink Batts third generation insulation, an improved indoor air quality can be created.Pink Batts third generation insulation now has both the Finish RTS M1 and North American Greenguard indoor air quality certifications. M1 and Greenguard indoor air quality certification gives assurance that products meet strict chemical emissions limits (including minimal levels of VOCs and formaldehyde), to help create healthier indoor environments.
The product meets other high independently assessed industry standards including the New Zealand Environmental Choice, accessed on waste mimimisation, energy management, manufacturing process and durability and performance characteristics. The glass wool used to manufacture Pink Batts insulation is a safe bio-soluable formulation that is not the same as fibreglass or asbestos. The product has also been accessed by the New Zealand Asthma Foundation’s Sensitive Choice Programme, so it’s safe to install in the homes of those suffering from asthma, as well as offering other health benefits.
The third generation has also resulted in a reduction in the amount of dust produced by Pink Batts insulation, meaning greater comfort for those handling and installing the product. Pink Batts insulation now feels more pleasant, while still retaining the performance and durability characteristics that have kept it New Zealand’s favourite insulation over the last 50 years.
