Wanting high R-values? Choose Pink® Batts® high performance Insulation
Published: 21 April 2021

With Pink® Batts® insulation, you will find a solution to best fit your project requirements. Pink® Batts® insulation is 100% Kiwi made. Not only do we have the stock always ready to roll out the factory door to your building site, we also offer the widest range of insulation to suit the varied needs of Kiwi homes and buildings.

Insulation with high R-value increases the thermal resistance of the elements – wall, roof and underfloor – of the building where it is installed.

For new houses, minimum standards of insulation are defined by the requirements of our building code. However, just like many others we advocate to go beyond the minimum and ensure better thermal performance and energy efficiency. It makes good sense to stay ahead of the imminent changes to our NZ Building Code, and ensure you create a warm, dry and comfortable space.

Highest R values

We offer the highest ceiling R-value possible – Pink® Batts® Ultra® R 7.0 Ceiling- the highest industry value for the glass wool insulation category.

For walls, both 90mm and 140mm thickness are available. Installing 90mm insulation in a 140mm framing space will not take advantage of the thermal benefits achieved by using our 140mm insulation range.

The Pink® Batts® insulation 140mm wall range has higher R-values that go up to R4.0 and can achieve a higher thermal performance than when thickness is restricted to 90mm where R2.8 is the highest R-value achieved.

Application Pink® Batts® Ultra® Range R-values
Ceiling R 4.0, R 5.0, R 6.0, R 6.3, R 7.0
Wall 90mm R 2.6, R2.8
Wall 140mm R3.2, R3.6, R4.0

Both our 90mm and 140mm wall range additionally offer a Narrow wall option for framing spaced 400mm between studs. Sized to the framing dimensions, the Narrow wall option decreases the number of cuts required during installation.

Additionally, some of our products have a Steel wall option – 610mm – that will fit nicely in between the steel framing.

Steel and Narrow wall products can have an impact on reducing waste on site, improving the quality of the installation and reducing the time taken to get the job completed.

Special range R-values
Narrow wall R 2.2, R 2.6, R 2.8, R 3.2, R 4.0
Steel wall R 2.6, R 2.8
