Glass Wool Insulation

Cavity wall glass wool insulation is a material with a set of highly applicable physical properties that make it perfect for home insulation or industrial insulation applications. Glass wool insulation is another name for fibreglass insulation. It can sometimes be referred to as glass fibre insulation or fibreglass batts. Glass bottles are melted at extreme temperatures and then spun into fibres. The resulting material has millions of microscopic air pockets created within it, which is the main reason for glass wool insulation’s excellent insulating properties.
Glass wool insulation is produced either in rolls or in slabs. It can be produced with different thermal and mechanical properties depending on the composition and requirements. It can also be produced as a material which may be sprayed or applied in place onto the surface to be insulated. Whether used for cavity wall insulation or as loft insulation, glass wool insulation is a choice that will last and provide the kind of thermal insulation any homeowner is looking for.

Features of Glass Wool Insulation

  • Glass wool insulation comes in rolls that can simply be unrolled between joists, making it very easy to install.
  • It has good insulating properties, helping to keep heat in during the winter and heat out during the summer.
  • Most cost effective insulation solutions
  • Glass wool insulation also provides good acoustic qualities.
  • Glass wool insulation is resistant to fire.
  • During the manufacture process, about 70-80% of the glass wool is produced from recycled glass.
  • Glass wool insulation is resistant to insect infestation.
