Insulation for Every Need

Thermal Solution
Weathershield, a specially manufactured insulation, refined to develop maximum advantage of inherent physical properties.

Weathershield is a loose-fill, fibrous insulation manufactured from selected paper stock just like other everyday building materials such as asphalt shingles, backer board, ceiling tiles and drywall papers. Each bag of Weathershield displays Environment Canada's ECOLOGO, classifying it as an "environmentally friendly" product"

Weathershield may be hand poured or pneumatically placed using a blowing machine and delivery hose. Machine application ensures that the material is properly conditioned, and placed at the required design density.

A loose-fill, injected or spray applied thermal or acoustical insulation. Loose-fill is appropriate for horizontal or moderately sloped attics up to 4:12 pitch. Injection may be used to fill areas such as flat or sloped ceilings and vertical walls. Spray applied may be used in open stud cavities or steeply sloped attic surfaces. Choose the most appropriate method of installation to achieve the desired thermal and/or acoustical performance. Used for new construction or retrofit.

Acoustical Solution
Sound waves, like heat, always follows the path of least resistance. If there are leaks in the acoustical insulation, then the wall assembly will not provide a good sound barrier. Poor fitting batt insulation can contribute to these sound leaks.

Weathershield because of its dense fibers and ability to fill irregular cavities has excellent sound attenuation properties.
