Why choose Black Mountain Natural Insulation?
Carbon Zero or Less
Black Mountain Natural Range of insulation products have a part to play in the carbon cycle. NatuWool and NatuHemp both absorb carbon which cannot be said about some other man-made glass fibre type insulants.
Black Mountain Natural Insulation present no health risk to both the installer and residents of the building. They also have the ability to absorb moisture that reduces the risk of consequent moulds and bacteria activity.
Manufactured in the UK, Black Mountain Natural Insulation Products use raw materials that other industries like the textile industry would dispose of. The energy used in the manufacturing process is very low, 80 – 90% lower than some man made products.
By allowing the structure to breathe whilst maintaining thermal resistance Black Mountain Naturals help to conserve the building, improve air quality and maximise thermal efficiency.
Natural Insulations are often the preferred choice by organisations such as Historical Scotland, The National Trust and English Heritage. The hygroscopic nature of Black Mountain Insulation can actually draw moisture out from the timber and other fabrics of the building.
NatuWool, NatuHemp and NatuFlex can all be installed in different building applications. They have the capability of reducing energy loss and providing building inhabitants with free passive energy absorbed from solar gain, whilst the high thermal mass helps reduce peak temperatures.
