Polyester fibre insulation roll
NOVAfloor Underfloor Insulation is high density insulation for use under the floor and is made from 100% polyester in NZ.
It incorporates a blend of technical fibres for thermal performance and a high percentage of recycled fibres for sustainability.
NOVAfloor Underfloor Insulation is friction fitted between floor joists and is proven to stay in place where you need it – snug under your home floorboards. Fitted correctly, NOVAfloor Underfloor Insulation won’t fall out.
Like NOVAtherm Ceiling and Wall Insulation, NOVAfloor Underfloor Insulation is safe and healthy. Polyester fabric is commonly used for clothing – the All Whites 2010 World Cup shirts were made from 100% recycled polyester (about 8 plastic bottles per shirt). It won’t irritate you or make you itchy. And installation is safe – NOVAfloor underfloor insulation eliminates the need for stapling that has caused deaths from electrocution.
NOVAfloor underfloor insulation has an R-value of R1.4. More importantly when it is installed under the floor in your home it maintains its effectiveness under adverse conditions. Tests have shown that polyester insulation blankets used under the floor do not perform as well due to air flow under the home, even under light wind conditions.
What’s more, NOVAfloor’s underfloor insulation heavy duty formulation cuts out draughts coming up through the floorboards, and has excellent acoustic characteristics, especially in homes with exposed floor boards. NOVAfloor contains no glues so there will be no fumes or odours.
