The Eco Insulation Canterbury team have installed Jet Stream MAX, high performance blown glasswool insulation into the Marriott House. This is the first Passive House for Christchurch, and based on the design will not require any heating for the house to perform both in winter and summer for the owners. Jet Stream MAX is a dry blow-in insulation from Knauf Insulation that is silicone treated, non-combustible glasswool. Designed for injection into walls, ceilings and closed cavities. The system creates a thermal, acoustic and fire-resistant barrier. The product comprehensively fills gaps, voids and hard to reach areas around pipes, electrical wires and fixtures.
ecoslab is a system for slab edge insulation that assists in minimising heat loss, improved comfort, and also assists in attaining Homestar™ points. ecoslab is a system to deliver a protected slab edge continuous insulation in one process. It includes the core insulation (Climafoam XPS) together with sealant and protective durable outer render to withstand the rigours of the external ground placement.
