Understanding Insulation

Polyester and/or Pink Batts are a bulk fibre insulation which holds large pockets of air within its structure, reducing dramatically the transfer of conducted and converted heat.The thermal efficiency of an insulation product is stated as an R value which is a measure of the bat’s resistance to heat flow and will depend on the type of material, its thickness and density. Polyester and Pink Batts are available in the appropriate R values and offer a practical solution to insulating your home.
