Wood Fibre Insulation

Woodfibre insulation provides thermal insulation both in summer and in winter. Wood is a precious raw material with an excellent attenuation value. A high thermal insulation power allows not only to have an excellent living comfort, but also to save energy.

Thermal insulation both in summer and in winter

One advantage that is particularly noticeable in winter: thanks to the woodfibre, the home retains its comfortable warmth for a long time, because the extraordinary thermal-insulating characteristics of woodfibre materials avoid heat loss. The natural porosity and the composition of the fibres make the wood a particularly effective insulator.

Thanks to the woodfibre you can enjoy a mild temperature even on hot days. The attics in fact tend to heat up a lot in summer because the roof captures the warmth of the sun on a very large surface. Woodfibre board products have a higher weight than, for example, glass wool and can offer greater resistance to solar radiation (greater heat storage capacity). The daytime heat is then released only in the evening hours, cooler.


The structures should be made open to diffusion in order to guarantee the regulation of indoor and outdoor air humidity. In this regard, woodfibre insulation is the optimal solution, as they are made of high quality insulating materials that are open to diffusion and, thanks to their hygroscopic properties, reduce the risk of damage to the building envelope and guarantee a healthy and pleasant indoor climate.

Acoustic insulation

With their high weight and porous structure, woodfibre insulation materials are excellent for noise absorption, because increasing mass increases acoustic insulation. This applies to both walls and roofs, where woodfibre insulation materials are used between timbers or over the internal face. Furthermore, the porous structure of the fibres has positive effects on the sound-absorbing action. Acoustic protection is also important for floors and intermediate floors.

Insulating material for greater well-being

Woodfibre insulation also allows you to enjoy your home more. In winter, woodfibre insulation materials create a comfortable climate, as they surround the house and prevent the heat created inside from dispersing. In a well-insulated construction it also automatically increases the temperature of the inside of walls and ceilings, and the effect is immediately evident:

  • Higher wellness: evenly warm walls release more radiant heat. Since the radiant heat is particularly comfortable for people, it is often possible to have the same feeling of well-being with a slightly lower room temperature. Positive side effect: lowering the room temperature by one degree means reducing energy costs by approximately 5%.
  • Protection against moisture: no condensation forms on the hot walls and there are no wet areas that favour the appearance of mould. This prevents mould from the beginning.
  • Less air movements: in contact with external walls that are not insulated, the interior air in the room cools down and down towards the centre of the room where it heats up and rises, thus creating unpleasant movements of air. In a well-insulated building the air in the room is still, we feel better, and the dust is shaken less, with positive effects for those suffering from allergies.
