England – 27/10/2011– If you have wondered where those plastic bottles you recycle end up one answer is in recycled insulation.
The world of building insulation does not sound exciting, but it is. It is a very innovative industry that is constantly coming up with new, more economical and more effective materials. Recycled insulation is the latest in this long line of innovative products. As the name suggests it is wall, loft, floor or roof insulation that is made from recycled materials.
There are many kinds including products made of recycled paper, wood fibre and plastic. By far the most popular of these is loft insulation that is made from recycled plastic bottles.
Why clients love recycled insulation
Most people make a big effort in their lives to live be eco-friendly. This fact is the main driver behind the rising popularity of recycled insulation. Not only do people want to take the time to separate their rubbish and recycle they also want to use recycled products as often as possible.
However, recycled insulation does far more than give people a good feeling it is also better than standard insulation. Loft insulation that is made from 85% recycled plastic bottles is extremely easy to install. It is non itch and can be installed without a mask or gloves. Because it has no free floating fibers even people with allergies can have it installed. It is resistant to mildew, mold and pest infection, plus, because it is made of plastic is not affected by water. This means it can be rolled out over existing insulation and fitted to the underside of roof tiles, between the rafters. It is designed to last for 50 years. 1.5 tones of carbon emissions are saved for every tone of recycled bottles used to make this kind of insulation, so it really does save the planet.
YBS Insulation has been selling all kinds of insulation to homeowners and builders for decades and even they are surprised at the huge demand for this product. They sell the Eco-wool brand of recycled insulation and found that demand for this new product was instant.
