Natural insulations are suitable for all types of buildings. However, their breathable and moisture-buffering qualities make them essential in the restoration of historic, solid wall constructions.
The use of natural insulations is becoming increasingly popular with architects, specifiers and homeowners who are looking for alternative solutions due to the growing concern for the environment and the need to ensure improved levels of health and comfort alongside the need to improve energy efficiency within new and existing buildings.
Natural insulations can be used in wall, roof and floor build ups and in a similar way to conventional insulation materials. Unlike many conventional materials, our range of natural insulations do not create a hazardous environment during fitting. Natural insulations are safer to handle and provide a healthier environment and improved air quality due to the lack of toxins and pollutants as opposed to synthetic alternatives.
For new builds, natural insulation has the capacity to protect against summer over-heating and has a positive influence on indoor air quality making them an attractive alternative to conventional materials.
