Benefit: Thermal Performance

Maximising the Fletcher Insulation Thermal Performance Advantages

Extensive research and empirical evidence firmly establish the impact of insulation on a building’s thermal efficiency. Studies conducted in Australia consistently demonstrate that effective insulation significantly reduces heat transfer, resulting in a more stable and healthier indoor environment and substantial energy savings, reducing carbon emissions.

According to the Australian Government’s Department of Climate Change, Energy, the Environment and Water, insulation can save up to 45% or more on heating and cooling costs in residential houses. And the benefits of energy savings extend across diverse built environments, including schools, universities, offices, warehouses, hospitals, medical centres, retail complexes, hospitality and entertainment venues, as well as transportation hubs.

Quality and Thermal Performance Go Hand-in-Hand

At Fletcher Insulation, we take great pride in offering high-quality insulation products that have a proven track record of delivering true thermal performance.

The Significance of Our Codemark Certification

Fletcher Insulation proudly holds Codemark certification for thermal performance in our key glasswool product lines. This certification provides numerous benefits for architects, builders, installers and certifiers.

  1. Quality Assurance: Codemark certification independently verifies that our product quality, processes, standards, and installation instructions meet the stringent requirements of third-party assessment for compliance with the National Construction Code (NCC).
  2. Streamlined approval processes: Codemark certification can reduce time and effort spend on individual assessments, leading to quicker project timelines and potential cost savings.
  3. Risk Mitigation: With Codemark certification, there is a level of protection against potential product issues. In the event of a problem, stakeholders can rely on certification as evidence of due diligence in product selection.
  4. Facilitating Collaboration: The use of Codemark certified products promotes smoother communication and collaboration among architects, specifiers, builders, installers and certifiers.

In summary, our Codemark certification signifies that our products have undergone rigorous third-party assessments, ensuring they meet the highest standards for thermal performance and compliance with the NCC. This certification provides architects, specifiers and builders with added confidence in the quality and suitability of our thermal insulation solutions for their projects.
