Black Scrim is made from 100% Polypropylene and is useful when adhered to or laid over an exposed surface such as glass wool or polyester insulation which has been used in…
Thermal & Sound Batts are manufactured from thermally bonded polyester fibre with a minimum of 80% recycled fibres. They are manufactured to comply with AS/NZS4859.1
Earthwool® Internal Acoustic Wall Insulation products reduce unwanted noise from outside and also limit sound transmission from room to room or office to office.
High Density Glass Wool Wall Batts provide excellent acoustic performance in home and office walls, reducing sound transfer from outside or between adjacent rooms.
Nu Wave’s 4 Zero barrier is the same as the “Base” product but with a flexible aluminium film facing which gives the barrier excellent fire resistant properties when tested to AS 1530.3
Most commonly used to silence noise in walls, timber floors and ceiling spaces, particularly over office partitions in commercial buildings.
The heart of the Nu Wave range is the dense polymer technology that has been proven to reduce noise in heavy industrial plants.
The problem noise from Waste Pipes disturbs residents in buildings. Nu Wrap 5 Acoustic Lagging for Pipes provides the solution to this problem.
For noisy pipes in buildings, Nu Wrap is the effective and easy to install solution. Also suitable for ducting and ventilation fans.
A range of acoustic insulation to suit varying requirements such as ceilings, partition walls or plant rooms as acoustic baffles and acoustic silencers, in cinemas and sound studios.
Ceiling Baffle is specially designed for use above partition walls in suspended ceiling cavities to reduce room to room sound transmission.
Polymax MSB is designed to increase the acoustic performance in commercial and industrial applications manufactured in a range of densities and thicknesses to suit.
The thermal performance of a batt is dependent on the thickness. If you have an R 3.0 batt at 175mm thickness this will not fit into a 75mm or 90mm thickness wall stud. Compression of the batt will result in loss of thermal rating and can exert undue pressure on the wall cladding.
Insulation is rated on either its thermal or acoustic value. If a thermal batt is rated at R3.0 for example, there is no difference in performance whether it is polyester or glass wool. It is rather a personal or a financial choice.
The polyester is not suitable as it wraps around the fixing screws required for installation.
If you have a timber stud frame, you must use a breather foil or breathable building membrane. For a steel framed home a 6.5mm foil faced foam product with an R value of R0.2 must be used in order to satisfy the thermal bridging requirements. There are 6.5mm products in the market that do not meet these standards so choose carefully.
