Biofib Duo – Flax and Hemp Wool Insulation
Made from natural common flax and hemp fibres, the Biofib Duo range is specifically designed for healthy and comfortable insulation for your home. It combines the recognised qualities of hemp and flax, which gives it a high thermal efficiency, for optimum protection against cold in the winter and heat in the summer but also good sound insulation for a calm and serene atmosphere.
Due to their plant structure, hemp and flax plant fibres are naturally able to regulate moisture. This means that they are able to absorb part of the ambient moisture and release it when the atmosphere is too dry. Biofib duos ability to breathe is a natural air-conditioning system for rooms and protects materials that are sensitive to moisture (such as plaster),
Biofib duo is therefore ideal for the breathing wall concept applied to Timber Frame Houses. Natural and anti-allergenic, Biofib duo is easy to install (not irriting to the hands and eyes and no dust in your respiratory system). Once installed, it gives your home a healthy environment without producing volatile organic compounds.
This insulation is manufactured from fine Hemp fibres in slab form but also in rolls making it an ideal substitute for glass fibre insulation because as a natural product it can be tolerated well by the skin and causes no itching. Hemp has been used by mankind for thousands of years. It has always been considered a valuable raw material for clothes, paper, oil and medicine. In recent years the demand for more cost effective natural construction materials has allowed for the regeneration of the hemp industry.

Styrodur C Green Insulation Board
Effective thermal insulation with Styrodur C makes an important contribution towards reducing emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), the main greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. Styrodur C reduces energy consumption, with the result that investment in thermal insulation can be recouped within a short time.?Buildings that are insulated with Styrodur C are more healthy and comfortable to live in, and the fabric of the building is protected from the effects of high and low temperatures and from moisture. This prolongs the life of buildings and enhances their value. Styrodur C is the environmentally friendly insulating material with added value. Styrodur C is environmentally friendly, because its cells are filled with air.
