Wall Insulation Types

Sydney Wall Insulation CompanyThere are number of wall insulation types that are used in the construction stage of a residential or commercial building. The insulation you will require is dependent on the wall system and construction. For new buildings, insulation is mandatory and must comply with your Building Sustainability Index (BASIX) and the thermal requirements defined in your development application (DA).

Before deciding on the type of wall insulation you require, you must define what the R-Value requirement is and actual wall system that you have. The choices available to you include wall insulation batts, Sisalation and a broad range of air cell based products.
