How are glasswool batts installed?
 
Glasswool batts come in standard widths and lengths that match standard ceiling joist spaces. The batts are usually brought into an existing ceiling access and batts are snug fit between ceiling joists to ensure maximum thermal insulation is achieved.
 
What is the price per square meter?
 
The installed cost will vary from house to house depending on accessibility and access within the roof space. For a true indication of final cost you will need to arrange for a FREE quote with one of our consultants.
 
 
How safe is glasswool?
 
Glasswool and rockwool insulation products are not hazardous and are safe to install in your home or in other insulation applications for the life of the building.
 
Glasswool & rockwool insulation products have been comprehensively researched, and in 2002 the World Health Organisation concluded that after more than 30 years research, including studies on over 60,000 insulation workers, there is no long term serious risk to health from exposure to insulation fibres.
 
To further ensure the safety of our products, Our manufacturers changed the formulation of glasswool and rockwool insulation in 2001 to now use what are known as "bio-soluble fibres". Insulation fibres are now less bio-persistent than the dust we breathe in every day walking down the street and are not considered to pose any risk to health. You can identify bio-soluble fibres by the FBS-1 logo on our packs.

Bradford Gold glasswool and Soundscreen Rockwool is also supported by the National Asthma Council and is identified through the Sensitive Choice logo.

Can insulation be installed directly on top of my plasterboard?
 
Yes it can, there are some loose fill products that will exceed the weight recommendations by plasterboard manufacturers. All of Builders Choice glasswool products are safe to install on plasterboard ceilings.
 
Is glasswool insulation compatible with down lights?
 
Builders Choice Insulation ceiling insulation is non-combustible. Additionally, glasswool ceiling insulation will not increase the fire load in your roof space. Care should be taken around down lights to ensure sufficient space is provided to allow transformers and lights natural ventilation to cool (required by Australian Standards).
