Expol - Energy efficient under floor insulation
Austech is introducing a new product range from Expol , giving a smart solution to the problem of under floor insulation in the new homes that can also be retrofitted into existing homes.
The new range of insulation meets and surpasses current Australian standards in under floor insulation, with an R-value of 1.4 when used under a typical wooden floor. This means a saving of 12% on the average households heating bills.
Expol insulation had been designed to last, and as a result comes with a 50 year warranty.
The products insulation system has been designed to be quick and simple, with a unique "spring" system, meaning it is self-supporting in most situations. This makes it especially useful in pole homes and timber framed houses.
There are four different sizes, with an exclusive "Flexi cut" system, meaning it can be shaped easily using simple tools, to fit almost any floor joist system
The high R-value is achieved with a snug fit between joists creating stabilized air. This protects the home form the extremes of temperatures under the floor, leaving homes a more comfortable place.
The Stabilized air also acts as a draught reducer, eliminating the flow of air between the floorboards. This ability can also help with damp reduction; since moisture soaked water vapor can no longer pass into the house through the floorboards.
Expol under floor insulation is a fire retardant, and will not support a flame; furthermore if it is involved in a fire, it has a level of toxicity similar to that of burning wood.
Expol is 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 and works with many surfaces.
