Wool can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture and still hold its thermal performance.
Wool’s ability to ‘breathe’ gives it the performance edge enabling Terra Lana insulation to outperform synthetic fibrous insulation of the same thermal rating.
By actively absorbing and releasing moisture in the form of vapour, Terra Lana insulation performs like a thermal mass, moderating the change of temperature within a home to create a more comfortable environment.
Wool is only fibre with this inherent quality used for insulation in New Zealand. This coupled with good design helps contribute to risk mitigation in Skillion ceilings.
Warmer, drier home through winter, cooler during summer.
Terra Lana Wool Blend Insulation is BRANZ appraised (Appraisal 682) for performance.
