100% wool insulation

GreenWool-100%NZ™ is 100% genuine sheep wool. GreenWool™ is not exposed to synthetic contamination of any sort. Unlike some other machine blown wool products, GreenWool™ is not blended with any other synthetic fibre. Material is not procured from any source that processes both wool and synthetic fibre, thereby ensuring a totally natural product.

GreenWool™ is a natural wool fibre lofted insulation that has been treated and processed to provide a cost effective efficient insulation.

GreenWool™ can be installed in ceilings of existing and new homes or offices.

GreenWool™ is installed by only approved installers using a machine blowing technique that provides a full blanket effect.

GreenWool™ can get into spaces that traditional blanket or batting type products can’t. So when the roof line is low or access is challenging GreenWool™ will ensure there is total cover.

Machine installation takes advantage of wools natural bonding properties ensuring that the product maintains its loft and will not shift. This provides a superior and long lasting thermal insulating performance.

Green Sheep® operates a strict code of practice which monitors and ensures product is installed correctly by qualified Installers. This will provide a guaranteed thermal insulation rating.

Unlike synthetic products, the wool fibre is hollow which enables air to be trapped naturally. The finer the wool fibre is, the more fibres there are in a given weight of wool. This results in a greater volume of trapped air, hence the improved thermal efficiency. GreenWool™ is installed at thermal values ranging from R2.6 up to R5.0.

New Zealand made Wool insulation from Terra Lana out performs other ceiling insulation products because of it's breathability (ability to absorb moisture and 'heat' a room or release moisture and 'cool' a room), it has no nasty health effects and is 100% environmentally friendly so you know you are doing the right thing by specifying it.

Terra Lana's ceiling insulation batting is perfect for retrofitting in older buildings and offers outstanding performance in new structures. Ceiling insulation can be supplied in pre cut slabs but is usually sold in standard width rolls and can be made to order if non standard dimensions are required.

Designed for ceilings and external walls of homes and commercial buildings, Terra Lana ceiling and wall insulation is available in a range of thicknesses, widths and R values to suit your region and the building's construction type.

Insulation works by trapping air; just think of a double glazed window and the air trapped between the panes of glass. GreenWool™ insulation forms an amazingly effective thermal barrier and has proven acoustic performance. This is why it is important that the insulation is not compacted and is the right fit for your ceiling. If the product does get wet, once dry it will retain the insulation value it had prior to getting wet.
