Did you know that up to 30% of heat loss or gain is through an un-insulated ceiling?

Our engineered blow-in insulation solutions will increase the thermal performance of your ceiling, saving you money and making your home more comfortable all year round – warm in winter and cool in summer. If you have existing insulation, it can be topped up to increase overall performance and if you have none, we recommend insulating your ceiling to the highest R-Value, also known as it’s ‘thermal resistance’. This is the measure of the insulation’s ability to resist the transfer of heat. By doing so, you will benefit now and in the long term both in comfort, and your heating and cooling bills.

Product Information

Jet Stream MAX® is a high performing, engineered blow in glasswool insulation for ceilings in existing homes.

It has exceptional thermal performance and a proven track record in North America and Europe.

  • Excellent thermal performance
  • Save on energy costs
  • Non-combustible
  • Trusted insulation solution
  • Excellent coverage – fills all gaps and voids

Earthwool® Batts are also a great solution for existing ceilings where there is good access and existing insulation has been removed, or where consideration needs to be made for electrical cabling.

The Earthwool®  Ceiling batt range includes a selection of R-Values to provide builders, designers, installers and DIYers the opportunity to choose the best thermal performance for their project. Earthwool® Ceiling batts will improve the thermal comfort and energy efficiency of the building in which they have been installed thus keeping it cool in summer and warm in winter.

Super-soft to handle and install, Earthwool® is made using up to 80% recycled glass and with ECOSE®Technology, a sustainable, bio-based binder that contains no added formaldehyde.

Ceiling Application

Jet Stream MAX® is an ideal solution for insulating ceilings in existing homes with all ceiling types. It can be installed in ceilings where there is no existing insulation or as a top-up layer over existing insulation.

It provides a high level of thermal performance by providing a continuous layer of insulation, which reduces thermal bridging. Jet Stream MAX should only be installed by Approved Installers to ensure the highest quality and installed performance.

Earthwool® Ceiling batts are a new generation of super-soft, sustainable Glasswool for the thermal insulation of ceilings. They come in pre-cut rectangles at either 430mm or 580mm widths to suit most ceiling joist centres and can be installed into un-insulated ceilings or use to top up over existing batts. Earthwool® Ceiling batts can also be installed by the capable home-handyman and are available from our online store.

Recommended Thicknesses/R-Value

How is Jet Stream MAX Installed?

The insulation is blown into the ceiling space by Approved Installers. Jet Stream MAX will be installed in your ceiling to form an even layer of insulation that meets your specific thermal performance requirements. The process is quick and clean and will provide minimal disruption – it will be completed before you know it. The installation of insulation will only be carried out once a full assessment of the suitability of the property and area to be insulated has been completed.

Our products are CodeMark certified

CodeMark is the highest level of product compliance in Australia, which is your assurance of the product’s suitability for use in your home and that it will perform as it should. CodeMark certification will also provide a smooth compliance pathway with local building authorities.
