Naturally effective


Comfort, warmth and clean, healthy air are something we all expect from our home insulation. But what about the long-term health of our greater environment? A toxin-free insulation product is a kinder option for the planet.

Eco Insulation offers pure wool insulation for clients seeking a warm, eco-friendly home, says general manager Paul Apperley.

"Wool is a safe, natural insulator – it's nontoxic, sustainable, recyclable and user-friendly to install. Our options include Ecofleece, a soft, natural New Zealand wool insulation blanket," says Apperley. "Ecofleece is designed to fit snugly into the walls and ceilings of new and existing houses. The high-grade wool has excellent acoustic and humidity control qualities, and is also competitively priced."

For hard-to-reach spaces, Ecowool is a pure wool, loose-filled option. This is designed for insulating low-pitched roofs and confined ceiling spaces, and installed professionally using a machine-blower.

A third option is Ecotherm, a polyester product, designed for underfloor insulation.


Eco Insulation won Best Emerging Business Category in Westpac's North Shore Business Excellence Awards in 2003.
