    What is sustainable insulation?

    Durable insulation refers to insulation materials and techniques that have the least possible impact on the environment throughout their life cycle, from production to disposal. These insulation materials are designed to promote energy efficiency by reducing heat loss, thus lowering energy costs and CO2 emissions. Sustainable insulation plays a crucial role in reducing the carbon footprint of buildings and promoting sustainable construction practices.

    The different types of sustainable insulation

    A popular form of sustainable insulation is made from recycled textiles, often from old cotton denim fabrics, as is the case with Metisse. This material is transformed into fibres that are then compressed to form insulation panels or rolls. It offers excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties and helps reduce textile waste.

    Another sustainable insulation option is made from recycled paper and cardboard. These materials are processed into insulation products such as cellulose insulation. Cellulose insulation is composed of recycled newspapers and cardboard treated with flame retardants, then blown or sprayed into walls, floors, and ceilings.

    Both recycled textiles and recycled paper/cardboard are examples of sustainable insulation materials that contribute to energy efficiency and environmental protection in the construction sector.

    Recycled Textiles - Cotton Insulation

    Insulation made from recycled textiles is suitable for various applications, including walls, roofs, and floors. It is easy to install, safe, and non-irritating to the skin, making it an environmentally friendly choice for new construction and renovation projects.

    Using recycled textiles as insulation material helps reduce the ecological footprint of the construction sector. By transforming textile waste into a valuable construction material, natural resources are preserved, and the production of new materials is reduced, thus reducing the environmental impact.

    Recycled Paper - Cellulose Insulation

    Cellulose insulation, made from recycled paper and cardboard, offers excellent thermal and acoustic insulation properties. It can be blown or installed in walls, floors, and ceilings, making it a versatile and effective insulation solution for various construction applications.

    In addition to thermal insulation, cellulose insulation also offers excellent acoustic properties. It can reduce sound transmission and contribute to a comfortable and quiet indoor environment, making it an ideal solution for acoustic insulation projects in homes, offices, and other buildings.

    Recycled paper and cardboard are generally cheaper than many traditional insulation materials, making cellulose insulation an affordable option for construction projects with a limited budget. Furthermore, recycled paper and cardboard are widely available, making them an easily accessible source of insulation materials.
