Benefits of Bradford Optimo Insulation
Bradford Optimo Insulation reduces heat loss and is an excellent sound absorber. By insulating your underfloor with Bradford Optimo, you can reduce your energy bills and the need to use heaters and air conditioner units as frequently. An uninsulated floor can be cold and uncomfortable to walk on despite temperatures being warm inside. Insulating your underfloor means that the floor itself is warmer as well as the temperature in the room. Bradford Optimo can also dampen the sound of foot traffic, creating a quieter space to relax in. Approved by the National Asthma Council Australia Sensitive Choice Program, Bradford Optimo helps to reduce triggers that cause asthma. With a 70-year product performance warranty, Bradford Optimo insulation can help you achieve a 6 star energy rating home for many years to come.
What Bradford Optimo Insulation size do I need?
To determine the right width needed, you will need to measure the distance from the middle of one joist to middle of the next joist. The measurement will be either 450mm or 600mm. For a 450mm joist width a 415mm batt size is needed and for a 600mm joist width a 565mm batt size is needed. Measure your joist height to determine your R-value. The depth will be either 75mm or 90mm.
• Width 450mm & Depth 75mm = R2.1
• Width 450mm & Depth 90mm = R2.5
• Width 600mm & Depth 75mm = R2.1
• Width 600mm & Depth 90mm = R2.5
