Autex GreenStuf thermal insulation

Product Description

Autex GreenStuf® is a New Zealand made range of quality 100% polyester acoustic and thermal insulation. GreenStuf® is non-irritant, non-toxic and thermally efficient insulation for residential, commercial and industrial applications.

GreenStuf® is manufactured using a minimum of 45% already recycled fibre (from PET plastic) and is recyclable. All Autex Insulation products are manufactured under a "zero waste policy" where off-cuts and waste are recycled back into the production process.

GreenStuf Pads for Walls and Ceilings
GreenStuf Pads are designed for the thermal insulation of timber-framed buildings and can be used in ceilings, internal and external walls and mid-floor cavities. They come as insulation segments pre-cut to fit standard timber-framing. Thermally bonded into shape, they are designed to be self-supporting in walls and ceilings and require no stapling into place.

GreenStuf Roll Form
GreenStuf Roll Form is an insulation blanket suitable for thermal and acoustic insulation of residential buildings. It can be used as a roof blanket, in ceilings, internal and external walls and in mid-floor cavities. GreenStuf Roll Form is also idea for insulating the ceiling of existing homes. Installed as a blanket it can be simply rolled out over the top of the ceiling joists to create a warmer, drier home in winter and a cooler home in summer. Insulating an older home is the single most effective thing you can do to create a warmer, direr, healthier and more energy-efficient home.

GreenStuf Skillion Roof Blanket
GreenStuf Skillion roof blanket has been specifically designed to provide high thermal performance in restricted spaces such as skillion roofs. GreenStuf Skillion Roof Blanket comes in a range of performance options and pre-cut to fit standard timber framing widths.

GreenStuf Masonry Wall Blanket
GreenStuf Masonry Wall Blanket is designed for the thermal and acoustic insulation of strapped and lined concrete and masonry walls. GreenStuf will not wick moisture through concrete or masonry wall reducing the potential for mould and moisture damage.

GreenStuf Underfloor
GreenStuf Underfloor is designed to provide thermal insulation under exposed joist floors of new and existing timber-framed buildings. GreenStuf Underfloor reduces heat loss through floors and assists in reducing drafts caused through joins in the floor boards. It comes in a range of thermal performance options and as rolls pre-cut to fit standard exposed timber joist floors.

Tool Credit Points Available Contribution Symbol Contribution Potential Detail
Homestar   MAT - 1  9   tick  1 merit  

This credit rewards the use of eco-preferred and responsibly sourced materials. Insulation products are one of thirteen possible construction types eligible for 1 merit each.

The Autex GreenStuf thermal insulation range includes products certified by Environmental Choice NZ, thus satisfying the requirement of this credit.

All Autex GreenStuf products are manufactured in the same manner as the ECNZ certified options. In accordance with the TC and CIR document published on the NZGBC website to date, the lower R-value versions of GreenStuf thermal insulation may also contribute towards points.

  EHC - 6  15   circle  Contribution potential  

This credit rewards the good thermal performance of the overall building design, encompassing insulation, glazing, orientation, ventilation and massing.

Thermal insulation products are strongly encouraged in the walls, ceilings (and under floor) to level that are higher than required by Building Code to help achieve a better thermal performance of the building.

  EHC - 7  4.5   circle  Contribution potential  

This credit rewards the minimisation of moisture accumulation and condensation within the property. Minimum levels of insulation are required to pass the mandatory requirements. Assuming the floor has an R value of at least R1.5, using Greenstuf insulation can easily help achieve at least R 1.5 final construction value for walls and ceiling which provides 0.5 points..

By increasing the insulation level to at least final construction values of R2.0 for wall, floor and ceiling and including efficient windows with R0.3, then this can provide an additional 1.1 points.

The remaining points relate to moisture control, extraction, drainage and ventilation. Please refer to Technical Manual.

Please note : final R-Values for the building are dependent on the construction type of the walls/roof/ceiling and must be designed for accordingly by the Architect/Engineer.

Depending on the size of the project, compliance with NZS 4218:2009 and/or NZS 4243:2007 may need to be demonstrated.

Symbol Manner in which the product may contribute towards points
Products must meet specific criteria (e.g. Paint VOC emissions, carpets, etc)
Products may help achieve points by their very nature, if they are specified and included in the design in accordance with Green Star NZ requirements (e.g. bicycle racks)
Products may help achieve an outcome but they must be used in a specific manner (e.g. lightingcontrol and zoning systems) OR this product can contribute towards the outcome but many other products or factor influence that same outcome (e.g. Potable Water Calculator)
