Mammoth NOVAhush Acoustic Insulation

Mammoth NOVAhush Acoustic insulation is made in New Zealand from 100% lofted, thermally bonded polyester fibres. Acoustic blanket and sections are designed to help reduce sound intensity at all frequencies and performs as an acoustic infill material by providing sound absorption within the cavity.
