Frequently Asked Questions

There are several key reasons that cellulose insulation is a superior product for buildings. It has higher R-per-inch values than most comparable mineral fiber materials, reduces air-leakage, is not as subject to convective heat loss, has lower cost relative to competing products of similar thermal efficiency, is fire safe, is made from more than 80% recycled material, is environmentally friendly, is approved by all major code bodies, and is well-tested and field proven.

Cellulose insualtion is argaubly the safest organic building material since it is always treated with persistent fire retardants. The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission does not believe cellulose insulation is a hazardous product. Fire statistics do not support the claim tha cellulose nsulation is a hazardous product. Scientific studies of actual fires and demonstration burns have proven that the dense fiber structure of fire-retarded cellulose actually slows the spread of fire, protecting ceiling joists & plaster from the spread of fire. This results in a fire being contained at its ignition point, thus preventing further damage.

Yes. Cellulose has a clear advantage over batt-type insulation, which is cut off-site & sometimes doesn’t snugly fit the space between ceiling joists. This installation problem is known as thermal bridging or thermal short-circuiting and can substantially reduce insulation batts’ effectiveness.
This problem is common throughtout the world, because it’s always difficult to fit insulation battes into ceilings with no gaps between the batts & the ceiling joists. For example, installing an R3.0 insulation batt in your ceiling with a 4% gap between the batt & the ceiling joist reduces the batt’s insulation performance by 50% to R1.5. by choosing ‘no-gaps’ cellulose insulation, you’re home is guaranteed to receive the insulation performance as advertised.

Yes. By using cellulose insulation, we are able to create a tighter building envelope. This means your maintenance and operating costs on heating and cooling systems will be reduced because a more consistent room-to-room temperature is created. In some cases, you will even be able to downsize your heating and cooling systems by using cellulose insulation

One must understand that the main function of cellulose insulation is to resist the flow of heat that generates in the roof. A minor leak will be absorbed by the cellulose fiber that acts as a sponge without any problem. However, as soon as you notice a wet spot on the ceiling, call the roof specialist for assistance.

Cellulose insulation is cost effective, adds to housing affordability, meets codes, is easy to install and helps differentiate your business as an enviromentally friendly member of the development industry.

Research and cost analysis shows that cellulose insualtion performs better and costs less than competing forms.
Homes with cellulose insulation are comfortable, healthy and fire-safe.
In addition since it is an enviromentally friendly product – – consisting or recycled materials – – consumers know they are helping the planet.

Cellulose… naturally. The Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) of the environmental impact of all insulation products during their total life of a building) shows that cellulose is the world’s leading enviromentally friendly insulation. It’s satisfying for consumers to know that a house insulated with cellulose insulation will:

  • Use less energy to heat or cool your living space, and therefore…
  • Pay for itself in around 5-7 years due to reduced energy bills.
    Importantly, cellulose insulation also contributes to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through the use of less fossil fuel-based (e.g coal) energy resources.

Excellent. Because it’s and organic material, cellulose is treated with fire retardants. It is the only common wood fiber based residential and light commercial construction material that always receives such treatment. This process makes cellulose insulation one of the safest construction materials on the Australian market.

Cellulose is a market leader in the reduction of noise between rooms, including between upstairs & ground floor rooms. Most sound between rooms travels up through ceiling & is reflected down into adjoining rooms./ Cellulose can reduce up to 66% of sound between rooms, making your living environment substantially quieter. Cellulose is the world’s most enviromentally friendly insulation because :

  • It’s manufactured from 83% environmentally friendly recycled materials
  • he energy used in its production ( i.e its embodied energy) is up to six (6) times less than other insulation materials
  • It’s rated as having the world’s-best insulation product life cycle analysis

By installing cellulose insulation in your home, you’re joing millions of satisfied consumers world-wide.

Yes. Cellulose keeps a home cooler in the hot tropical climate like Malaysia. A home’s inside temperature may change by as much as 6-8 degrees, therefore giving you a more comfortable living environment all year round.

Yes. Cellulose is easily installed by our trained staffs. Cellulose insulation’s benefits include:

  • It’s dense but lightweight and will not put undue strain on ceilings.
  • It prevents the common batt insulation problem loss of performance due to poor installation.
  • It provides an energy efficient insulation seal for you ceiling which means less use of your fans, coolers and air conditioners, resulting in low energy bills.

Yes. Cellulose insulation complies with all Australian State and Federal building regulations and is engineered to:

  • Comply with AS/NZs4859.1 ‘Materials for the thermal insulation of buildings’, which is the Australian product standard for cellulose insulation.
  • Last the life or your home.
  • Resist rodent & vermin infestation.

Our products are manufactured in accordance with all relevant product & installation Australian Standards and are audited and licensed by Quality Assurance Services (QAS), an independent licensing organisation approved by the Australian Building Codes Boards (ABCB).

No. Cellulose is treated with non-toxic ‘harmless-to-humans’ fire retardants which also repel vermin and insects.
