Knauf Insulation will showcase a range of innovative and high performing thermal and acoustic insulation solutions at BuildNZ, 23-25 June 2019. Christoph von Spesshardt, Director of Public Affairs at Knauf Insulation, will also present a seminar on energy efficiency in buildings on the first day of the show.

Alongside in-situ insulation solutions that can be used as sustainable solutions for energy efficient, thermally comfortable and healthy buildings, Knauf Insulation will also launch a new, non-combustible glasswool solution for façade applications.

The new Knauf Insulation façade roll is a superior solution for improving the thermal and acoustic performance of cladding systems. It comes with a black fabric facing that provides protection from windy conditions and the silicone treated glasswool will resist moisture.

DriTherm® will also be shown in a masonry cavity wall display. DriTherm® was developed for masonry walls and is silicone treated to ensure moisture resistance, which is backed by a 50 moisture resistance guarantee. Like all Earthwool® glasswool insulation products, DriTherm® has inherent thermal, acoustic and fire performance.

Knauf Insulation will also showcase its blow-in glasswool solutions for high performing homes. Since its launch in New Zealand in 2015, Jet Stream® MAX has been specified for a number of high profile homes, which have been designed to achieve high thermal performance and energy efficiency. The installation process for Jet Steam® MAX enables designers and homeowners to achieve outstanding thermal performance as it reduces thermal bridging by fully-filling all gaps and voids and it can be installed at a high density in order to achieve high R-Values.
