Ceiling Insulation Types

There are number of ceiling insulation types that are used in the construction stage of a residential of commercial building. The insulation you will require is dependent on the type of ceiling that you are constructing or have in place.

For new buildings, insulation is mandatory and must comply with your Building Sustainability Index (BASIX) and the thermal requirements defined in your development application (DA).

Before deciding on the type of ceiling insulation you require, you must define what the R-Value requirement is and actual the ceiling system that you have.

The choices available to you include insulation batts, insulated plasterboard, ceiling overlays and acoustic ceiling panels and tiles.
