Wool insulation batts
Wool insulation makes up a very low proportion of the market in Australia, around 1%. On price alone it can't compete with the fibreglass and polyester products on the market.
That was until now, with consumers growing awareness of the hazards of synthetic products, wool is now coming back into favour as an insulation product for ceilings and walls in homes.
The thermal and acoustic properties of wool are second to none, exceeding the synthetic products available. Other advantages of wool are it's natural fire resistance as well as it not having any of the health and safety issues associated with the synthetic products during installation.
