Manufacturing Thermguard Insulation uses an amazing 80% recycled newsprint, which is one of the largest parts of our waste stream. This waste is otherwise discarded in landfills thereby creating greenhouse gasses. It is extremely environmentally friendly, has no harmful synthetic additives and is 100% organic and biodegradable. The embodied energy (energy used to manufacture Thermguard) is 15 times lower than glass-fibre based insulation materials and almost 33 times lower than polyurethane (plastic) based insulation materials.
Thermguard ceiling insulation provides a 100% seamless cover as it is pneumatically blown into the ceiling and is a dry product. It offers a greater performance value (R-Value) than all other bulk insulation materials on the market. Its loose fill ensures it reaches all tight corners and hard to reach nooks and crannies within the roof space. These hard to reach areas are more prevalent in low pitched or complicated roofs. As a result, no gaps are left for unwanted air leakage or draughts through the ceiling.
