FAQ

What is Aerolite?

Aerolite is a pink, high quality, Glasswool thermal & acoustic ceiling insulation that is bonded with an inert, thermosetting resin. The strong, resilient, flexible blankets are supplied in compression packed rolls and are easy to cut and install.

What is Aerolite made of?

Fiberglass insulation is made from very fine strands of glass held together in a thick, random mat. Between the fibres are many small pockets of air. Aerolite insulation is manufactured from a combination of sand and up to 80% recycled post-consumer glass that would otherwise go to landfill. On average our fiberglass contains 50% recycled… Continue Reading

How does Aerolite work?

Heat flows naturally from a warmer to a cooler space. In winter, the heat moves directly from all un-insulated spaces to the outdoors and adjacent unheated attics, garages, and basements – wherever there is a difference in temperature. During the summer, heat moves from outdoors to the interior. Continue Reading

How effective is Aerolite?

Because Aerolite forms a highly efficient thermal barrier, it excludes solar heat gain in summer and retains heat generated within a building in winter. It reduces heat flow by up to 91% and can lower the temperature in summer by up to 5°C. What’s more, Aerolite’s insulation efficiency is unaffected by its orientation to, or… Continue Reading

Does Aerolite provide soundproofing?

Aerolite has excellent sound absorption properties thus reducing external noise leaving your home much quieter. Sound striking a hard surface is bounced off. When it strikes a layer of fibreglass, it enters the material and encounters friction, which changes the sound energy into heat energy. A sound absorption co-efficient of say 0.95 implies that 95%… Continue Reading

What is meant by R-Value?

R-value refers to a material’s thermal resistance, or how well it is able to retard heat flow. The R-value indicates the ability of a material to “resist” the flow of heat. The higher the R-value, the better an insulator will perform. R-Value is the reciprocal or inverse of conductivity or conductance. 1/R = c (conductance)… Continue Reading

Is Aerolite Eco-Friendly?

Yes! Aerolite insulation is manufactured from a combination of sand and up to 80% recycled post-consumer glass that would otherwise go to landfill. On average our fiberglass contains 50% recycled glass. Thanks to its resilient properties, Aerolite can be compressed by a factor of up to ten at the time of packaging and palletizing. This… Continue Reading

Does Aerolite pose any health risks?

Used for more than 70 years, ISOVER glass wool products have been proven themselves as popular, ecological and safe to use insulation materials that are probably the most well documented and tested building materials in the world. Continue Reading

Does Aerolite reduce energy costs?

Thermal insulation must be included in the design of all new buildings. This, in combination with energy saving techniques, makes it possible to save up to 78% of a building’s energy consumption for space heating, cooling and hot water services. Continue Reading
