ENVIRONMENTAL AND HUMAN HEALTH ADVANTAGES
- fibres form no possible health risk
- biodegradable and disposable
- low load on the environment
- no pollution of air and water,
- no emission of harmful chemicals like formaldehydes,
isocyanates, organohalogens, (H)CFCs, etc.
- total process: good energy balance
- the annually regrowing crop is an inexhaustible resource that does not contribute to global warming.
even better; during its growth it converts the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) into oxygen (O2).
- roll form reduces the amount of seams (points of heat loss)
and speeds up installation process (one piece from ceiling to floor)
- roll form is an excellent solution, specifically for older buildings with varying joist widths,
where it is necessary to cut pieces of different sizes
- plate form can be easier to handle in places difficult to reach
- no need to wear various inconvenient personal protection means
to avoid irritation of the eyes, skin and lungs
- areas need not be forced ventilated during installation.
- very good thermal and acoustical insulating properties
- flax insulation offers excellent temperature buffering characteristics,
resulting in gradual temperature changes for a comfortable indoor living climate
- very good “breathing” properties due to its hollow-fibre composition
which can have beneficial effects on surrounding constructions as well.
