New width for Pink® Batts® wall Insulation

wall width page

If you’ve ever questioned why Pink® Batts® wall insulation is 580mm wide requiring awkward and time consuming trimming to fit standard 600 centers, you’re not alone.

  • Old building practices meant that 580mm insulation used to be the right choice to account for variations in frame spacing.  

  • Now Pre-nail framing is used which is more accurate, so providing 580mm insulation is no longer necessary and the extra width means installers are continually required to trim 10-15mm strips off their insulation.

  • Not only is this time consuming but it creates more waste. 

It’s an issue we’ve been aware of for a while and that we’ve been working hard on rectifying, so we are very happy to be able to let you know that from early next year new 560mm Pink® Batts® wall insulation will be available.
