    About Fibreglass Insulation

    Composed of fine glass fibres, fibreglass, or glasswool insulation as it is sometimes known, is a popular choice in residential, commercial, and industrial applications. It works by trapping pockets of air between the fibres, creating a barrier that reduces heat transfer. One of the key advantages of fibreglass insulation is its versatility. It can be installed in walls, ceilings, and underfloor to enhance energy efficiency and maintain a comfortable indoor environment. Additionally, fibreglass insulation is fire-resistant and does not absorb moisture, preventing mould and mildew growth. Its durability and cost-effectiveness further contribute to its widespread use, making it a reliable and efficient solution for enhancing thermal performance in buildings. At PlaceMakers we offer Pink Batts insulation and Eliment inulsation in our Fibreglass range.

    COST $8.50 - $15
    INSTALLATION PPE gear must be worn over arms and legs and gloves, mask and eye protection are required.

    Pink® Batts® was originally known as New Zealand Fibre Glass Limited with its Auckland factory being built in 1961.

    In 1973 the Pink® Batts® product name was trade marked at the same time separating the brand from its Australian counterparts and recognising its New Zealand heritage and future.

    Pink Batts is the only glasswool insulation manufacturer in New Zealand – using local suppliers, employing kiwis and supporting the New Zealand building industry. Their products are still manufactured on the same Auckland site but regularly injected with fresh ideas in product design and plant efficiency.
