Ecocel : Key Features
Ecocel is Natural
Ecocel is made from natural fibres derived from recycled newspaper which might otherwise end up in landfill.
Ecocel is Warm
Studies show that buildings insulated with cellulose show a 30% to 40% reduction in energy demand when compared to those insulated with man made mineral fibres.
Ecocel is Airtight
When cellulose is installed to a density of 55-60 Kg/M3 or more, it acquires a unique air-sealing ability, eliminating both conductive and convective heat loss.
Ecocel is Fire Safe
The borate-based fire retardants in cellulose are non-toxic and provide a high level of fire resistance, meeting all protection standards and in effect providing a fire stop.
Ecocel : Key Benefits
Ecocel is Cost Effective
Ecocel provides a sustainable solution to energy efficiency without increased costs.
Ecocel is Sustainable
Cellulose has a very low embodied energy – the energy used in manufacturing the product. This is in contrast to man-made, mineral fibre insulations, which consume huge amounts of energy.
Ecocel is Energy Efficient
A U-Value is a means of measuring heat loss. A lower value means less loss. A timber framed wall with 300mm of dense packed cellulose can achieve a U-Value of 0.12 or lower.
Ecocel is Hygroscopic
In other words, it can absorb and release moisture, allowing the building to ‘breathe’, thus promoting a healthy living environment.
