Pink Batts SnugFloor Underfloor Insulation
Description

Pink Batts SnugFloor is a range of glass wool underfloor products designed to reduce heat loss in new and existing homes with suspended floors. When installed it also eliminates draughts through exposed floorboards and assists in meeting the requirements of the New Zealand Building Code for different designs and environments.

Key Features
  • Can provide a construction R-­value value more than double the minimum required by the Building Code
  • Unique strapping system to keep the insulation in place
  • Lightweight and flexible, ideal for use with joists that are uneven or out of kilter allowing for quick easy installation
  • No complicated wire sheathing required, as Pink Batts glass wool does not react with PVC covered wires
