Bradford Gold Glasswool insulation for walls is specially designed to deliver optimal thermal performance in external wall cavities. Up to 25% of the heat from your home is lost through the walls in winter, and almost the same amount of heat can enter in during summer. Glasswool wall Insulation acts as a barrier to slow down this process and makes a substantial difference to the temperature you feel inside so that you can live more comfortably.
R-value is the measuring tool we use to rate the level of insulation's thermal resistance. The higher the R-Value, the more effective the insulation is. Bradford Gold wall batts & Gold High-performance wall batts are available in R-Values from R1.5 – R4.0. The core material is glasswool, which is made up of very thin glass fibres that are spun like fairy floss to create millions of air pockets. These air pockets are poor conductors of heat and resist the flow of air through the insulation.
