Earthwool Underfloor Insulation
The EarthWool® underfloor insulation is a new generation of softer and sustainable glasswool insulation. Advanced compression packaging reduces handling time and the risk of damage in transit and on-site.
The product is specifically designed for overhead installation in tight crawl spaces. Eureka supplies an Ultra High Performance (high density) R2.5 batt. This batt is non–itch and provides a snug friction fit between joists.
EarthWool underfloor batts provide a cost-effective thermal and acoustic barrier for energy-efficient construction. It is perfect for the DIY handyman as the consistent quality, low dust, and clean-cutting resilient fibres make fabrication easy and installation fast.
Earthwool products made using ECOSE® Technology benefit from a binder which has no added formaldehyde and is based on renewable bio-based materials instead of traditional petroleum-based chemicals. The technology has been developed for Knauf Insulation’s glasswool and rock mineral wool products, enhancing our environmental credentials whilst maintaining the thermal, acoustic and fire performance and mechanical properties.
ECOSE Technology gives a distinctive new look to Knauf Insulation’s Earthwool products - a natural shade of earthy brown, with no added dyes, bleaches or artificial colours. Earthwool is also less dusty and has a much softer and friendlier feel whilst retaining its rigidity and stiffness properties. The ECOSE Technology binder is up to 70% less energy intensive than the formaldehyde binders used in traditional glasswool insulation. As there is no formaldehyde or phenol used in the manufacturing process for Earthwool, it also improves the indoor air quality of buildings where these products are installed (compared to conventional glasswool products).
Knauf Insulation’s Earthwool® products provide Australia with a new choice of highly sustainable insulation.
