Vermiculite The Natural Insulation

Vermiculite Loft Insulation From Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire

Vermiculite loft insulation is growing in popularity as it is not only very easy to use but, because vermiculite is a completely natural product, it is much more envi­ron­men­tally friendly than traditional insulating methods.

So What Is Vermiculite?

It is a natural material of thin flakes which are very light and which also contain traces of water. When exposed to heat, i.e., when heat rises into the loft, the flakes expand to provide very effective and high quality loft insulation.

Vermiculite loft insulation is odourless, clean and easy-to-handle. The material is very effective at stopping heat loss and, in warmer tempe­ratures, is also a coolant.

Vermiculite loft insulation comes in bags or sacks which are simply emptied and raked into the gaps between the joists and the ceiling / loft floor a lot easier  than the  usual blanket insulation which  is supplied and fitted in rolls.

And, best of all for those of us who are fed up with the irritating skin rashes when using fibreglass blankets, vermiculite loft insulation does not irritate when touched and is fibre-free.
