Energy efficient underfloor insulation

Austech are proud distributors of NRG Greenbatts, an insulation product that gives a smart solution to the problem of under floor insulation in new homes but can also be retrofitted into existing homes.

The products insulation system has been designed to be quick and simple, while also being self-supporting in most situations. This makes it especially useful in pole homes and timber framed houses. NRG Greenbatts are so easy to install that you can do them yourself, no need to pay a builder! 

There are a range of different sizes and thicknesses available to fit almost any floor joist system, while offering varying thermal values to match your specific needs. With thicknesses available from 50mm to 85mm, you can pick the system that best suits your property. .

The high R-value is achieved with a snug fit between joists to create a pocket of stabilized air. This protects the home from the extremes of temperatures under the floor, making it a more comfortable place to live.

The stabilized pocket also helps to eliminate the flow of air between the floorboards, preventing a cold breeze from cooling your house in winter. This can also help with damp reduction since moisture soaked water vapor can no longer pass into the house directly through the floorboards.

Greenbatts also contain a fire retardant and will not support a flame; furthermore, if it is involved in a fire it only has a level of toxicity similar to that of burning wood so you can rest assured that your home is safe.

NRG Greenbatts are an extremely versatile product and can easily be used for tricky insulation jobs, including walls, tight ceilings and sheds since it is extremely light weight, self-supporting insulation and works with many surfaces.
