Benefits of thermal insulation for commercial HVAC, pipe and industrial applications

Reduces heat loss and increases energy efficiencies

By maintaining a stable temperature, thermal insulation helps HVAC, machinery and other industrial applications work more efficiently.

Increases worker safety

Protects people working in industrial facilities from safety hazards posed by pipe carrying hot liquids or gases.

Easy to install

Available in various lengths and thicknesses, including pre-moulded piping and custom insulation, for easy installation for all types of applications.

What are the different types of thermal insulation?


Glasswool insulation is made from up to 80% recycled glass that’s melted and spun into a flexible mat, then compressed to the desired R value. Glasswool is economical and highly resistant to humidity, aging, corrosion, and rust. Plus, it’s also fire safe, and complies with Australian standards. Use in commercial and industrial buildings. Also available in pre-moulded, easy to install cylindrical sections for all types of pipes.

Glasswool Insulation

Polywool Insulation is a thermally bonded polyester blanket with good thermal control and acoustic absorption properties. Safe and easy to use, the polywool insulation material has minimal chance of creating or releasing dust, as the fibres are not brittle and cannot be broken or crumbled into small breathable particles.

Polywool Insulation

Rockwool insulation is designed to provide thermal insulation for all types of pipe and passive fire protection applications. Compared to other insulation materials of a similar thickness, Rockwool is lightweight, while providing a higher R-value. This makes it an economical insulation choice.

Rockwool Insulation

Foam insulation has a high insulating value relative to its thickness. It also offers good protection against condensation and heat loss and is also fire-resistant.

Foam Products

Reflective foil insulation works to reflect radiant heat. It’s particularly useful in very hot environments.
