Where to use 100% Sheepwool Comfort Insulation
- Loft & Attic
- Ceilings and between floors
- Ground floors
The sheep wool range is made from 100% pure wool fibres and which ensures a superior thermal performance over glass or mineral wool products.
The insulation rolls are made from a fully breathable material that will maintain its thermal efficiency even in the harshest climates.
According to the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) it is estimated that 30-35% of home heat loss goes through the roof of a home and about 7-10% through floors.
With energy rates on the rise it is essential to counter the price hike with proper insulation.
Features & Benefits of the Sheep Wool Insulation Rolls
Sheep Wool Insulation rolls are made from 100% Natural Sheep Wool, - they are safe to handle and install without special handling or protective equipment.
Please note other mineral wool insulation products are available elsewhere but most of these are not 100% Sheep Wool
Due to its high moisture content, wool does not support combustion and will extinguish itself in the event of fire when the source of flame is removed. It can absorb and break down indoor air pollutants, such as formaldehyde, nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide thus providing a 'clean air' environment at all times.
Sheep wool insulation rolls are the environmentally friendly, green way to insulate.
It is a sustainable and renewable resource that will reduce your carbon footprint.
It also requires only a fraction of the energy to produce in comparison to other insulation materials.
Easy DIY installation.
Please note: the recommended depth for attic insulation is 300mm
