Blown-In Wood Fiber Insulation Benefits
Blown-in wood fiber insulation is a solution that fulfills construction and sustainability needs. It provides insulation solutions for residential and commercial buildings in attics, ceilings, and more.
R-values are assigned to insulation products prior to installation and it is important that they retain those values to provide the functionality of insulation. Blown-in wood fiber insulation has stable R-values with interlocking loose fill insulation fibers which reduce air pockets, risk of settling, and a changed R-value.
Blown-in wood fiber insulation is often blended with borate during the manufacturing process. The addition of this compound allows the product to achieve an ASTM E84 Class A flame spread and smoke development index. Both blown-in wood fiber insulation and borate are non-toxic materials, making the end product a safe and environmentally-friendly solution.
Energy Saving by Nature
Blown-in wood fiber insulation can save energy during installation and after installation. Fill insulation products have more insulating power per pound, saving valuable energy when using insulation-blowing machines. After installation, blown-in wood fiber insulation cuts energy costs with its low thermal conductivity and high heat transfer capacity for different climates.
Wood fiber can absorb and store (and later release) moisture, resulting in increased interior comfort. Moisture passes through, reducing the risk of mold, rot, and allergens. Timber products also effectively redistribute unwanted condensation or moisture build-up evenly.
Stand-alone and assembly solution for reducing airborne and impact noise.
