NATURAL HIGH PERFORMANCE WOOL INSULATION

 

Compared to other insulation products on the market, wool proves itself to be superior in every way possible. Wool improves indoor air quality, manages moisture, absorbs sound, and is a healthy alternative to the otherwise toxic insulation options.

IMPROVES AIR QUALITY

  • Wool insulation does not off-gas harmful chemicals.
  • Wool fibers serve as an air filter.
  • The amino acids in wool insulation bond with harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde, nitrogen oxide and sulphur dioxide on a molecular level.
  • Wool is hypo-allergenic – making it well-suited for those who are chemically sensitive.
  • The EPA suggests that indoor air quality is 2-5x worse than outdoor.

ABSORBS SOUND

  • Wool exceeds other forms of insulation as an acoustic buffer.
  • Sheep’s wool absorbs 90 & 95% of airborne sound.
  • Unique visco-elasctic properties of wool assist in the conversion of sound energy to heat
  • The fibrous nature of a wool fiber means that, unlike many other materials, wool products can reduce airborne sound, surface noise and sound transmission all at the same time.

MANAGES MOISTURE

  • Wool fibers manage moisture by absorbing and releasing moisture against 65% relative humidity.
  • Wool prevents condensation by generating heat from energy, making it warm when wet.
  • Moisture is inevitable; wool’s inherent management capabilities allow for longer lasting products.
  • Wool is a keratin and will not support the growth of mold.’
