Underfloor insulation for wooden floors

Underfloor insulation for wooden floors – Introducing Warmafloor!

Warmafloor insulation is a polyester fibre underfloor insulation for wooden floors manufactured specifically for placing between floor joists, against the underside of the floor. Warmafloor has been installed since 2002 and is tested to NZS4859 standards. This underfloor insulation for wooden floors has superior strength in both directions compared to some other typical polyester floor insulation blankets or batting.

The home insulation rolls are uniquely sized to facilitate handling in confined sub-floor spaces and can be torn readily to suit joist length providing great installed insulation R-values.

Homes with no underfloor insulation for wooden floors have a thermal resistance of R0.6, which can be improved to R1.5 or R1.8 with a Warmafloor insulation blanket system correctly fixed against the floor, between the floor joists (in most buildings with a continuous sub-floor perimeter wall). It also reduces floor draughts through flooring gaps between uncovered timber polished floors. Warmafloor underfloor insulation blanket is unaffected by humidity or water. Even if it is wetted, its thermal insulation resistance will be completely restored, when dried. Warmafloor underfloor insulation for wooden floors does not represent a health risk to installers or occupiers of insulated buildings and does not promote corrosion on metal building components.

The key to high performing underfloor insulation is:

1 – Easy to install

2 – Resistant to moisture

3 – Must be securely held in place

4 – Have a proven track record

5 – Meet H1 requirements

6 – Installation in line with the insulation Standard NZS4246

Warmafloor insulation has been designed to meet these key criteria. It is easy to install with no gaps and will remain in place for the expected lifetime of the building.
