Glasswool Ceiling SupaBatts Data Sheet
B&B Insulations Glasswool Ceiling SupaBatts are a resilient and compressible insulation manufactured from the controlled felting of glasswool bonded with a thermosetting resin. The batts provide both thermal and acoustic insulation while also being soft and easy to install in the home. Glasswool Ceiling SupaBatts will not burn.
Glasswool Ceiling SupaBatts have been developed to provide efficient and cost effective insulation to the home owner. They are designed to reduce energy costs by keeping heat out during summer and heat in during winter.
Glasswool Ceiling SupaBatts are supplied in two conventional widths to suit standard housing construction: 430mm width for joists spaced at 450mm centres, as well as 580rnm width for joists spaced at 600mm centres. Glasswool Ceiling SupaBatts are installed by laying them on top of the ceiling in between the ceiling joists. They are also suitable for installation under floors for added energy savings.
