Eco Insulation and Knauf Insulation are pleased to report that the Earthwool range of ceiling insulation has been approved for use in the EECA Warm Up New Zealand subsidised insulation programme for retrofitting ceilings. EECA aim to insulate over 300,000 homes in the coming years. The introduction of the Earthwool range in conjunction with Eco Insulation means more houses will be able to be installed with less cost to the New Zealand taxpayer:
Stuart Dunbar - General Manager for Knauf Insulation Australia & NZ, together with Nick Hall of Eco Insulation opening the first container of Earthwool. Stuart notes: "This is an exciting first step introducing New Zealand to the exciting range of insulation solutions from Knauf Insulation. Working closely with the Eco Insulation team, we look forward to the Earthwool range of insulation being installed into EECA and Housing New Zealand projects throughout the country".
The Eco insulation Waikato team have been installing our ecofleece range into education facilities. Selected by customers based on thermal and health benefits, the product can be used in walls and ceilings. The range of products is manufactured from recycled sheeps' wool.
We know our products have been developed to save energy and where possible using recycled content. But are we doing enough to deliver a sustainable and cost-effective insulation range for New Zealand? Looking around the world for alternate and innovative suppliers we've met Knauf Insulation. This German company has developed and introduced ECOSE® Technology - no added phenol or formaldehyde - binder technology into the insulation sector. We are bringing this exciting range to New Zealand. Watch this space.
