ecoinsulation Thermal Ceiling Insulation

ecoinsulation Thermal Ceiling insulation with DriTherm technology is made using a silicone treatment that is added to the during manufacture to upgrade the moisture resistance of the glasswool insulation, and provide guaranteed water resistance for 50 years.

The R7.0 ceiling batt is extra thick, allowing it to be installed in a single layer with no notching to meet new H1 compliance standards.

ecoinsulation Thermal Ceiling insulation is made using:

  • Up to 80% recycled glass
  • ECOSE Technology — binder with no added formaldehyde
  • TwinTech — dual forming technique for a smooth finish on both sides
Key Features
  • DriTherm technology — silicone treated glasswool for increased durability
  • TwinTech — smooth finish on both sides
  • High thermal performance — year round comfort
  • Excellent acoustical properties reduce sound transmission in the home when properly installed
  • Non-combustible
  • Saves energy — lower energy bills
  • No added formaldehyde

Scope of Use
  • ecoinsulation glasswool has been appraised by BRANZ as a thermal insulation material for framed or part-framed ceilings and roofs of domestic and commercial buildings
  • The insulation is pre-cut to suit a wide range of thermal insulation requirements and framing set-outs
  • Comes in a range of R-Values — see Product Schedule
Limitations on Use
  • ecoinsulation glasswool must be stored under cover and in dry conditions
  • Heavy objects must not be stacked on the packs. The packs must be stored in an orientation that avoids excessive compression of the product.

See BRANZ Appraisal 1049 for full information.
