Starting with waste newspaper as the raw material, at Carlow Insulation we process the paper into its original fibrous state and formulate the material to give the required structure and properties needed for each particular application, i.e. wall, warm roof and attic insulation for timber frame structures and attic insulation for brick and block construction.
Cellulose is a non hazardous material manufactured from recycled newspaper, and is an incredibly effective insulation and what’s more it’s installed quickly and easily, simply by pumping it into place by approved installers. There’s no cutting and no access problems as one size fits all and you need less of it. You are combining ultra high insulation performance with true sustainability and environmental responsibility.
As material cellulose is extremely fire resistant through the addition of simple inorganic salts. It’s also free from harmful or toxic substances including VOCs, CFCs and added formaldehyde, it’s also resistant to biological and fungal attack, it’s treated against insects and is unattractive to vermin.
