How to Calculate Your m²/ft²?

How to Calculate Your m²/ft²?

It’s actually very easy to calculate how many square meters or foot an area is, whether it is a simple rectangle or more complex shape. When dealing with a simple rectangle, just multiply the length by the width for your total square meterage or footage. If you’re dealing with a more complex shape, treat each area as a rectangle and perform the same calculation. Then combine the square meterage or footage of each area for to get the total area.

Common Questions About Natural Insulation

Is It Safe and Easy to Install?

Natural insulation materials are much easier to work with than conventional materials, posing far fewer health-risks. For example, eco friendly insulation does not produce what are known as “man made mineral fibre particulates”, nor do they release pollutants that lower air quality such as formaldehyde.Not only are they far healthier during installation thanks to the fact that they present no danger to the skin, eyes or respiratory system, they’re also much healthier throughout their lifecycle too!

Off-cuts of natural insulation from the installation process are also safe and easy to dispose of, with no requirement for specialist waste streams and can even be composted to avoid unnecessary landfill. Simply contact with your local recycling centre to confirm where and how to dispose of any waste.

Is Eco Friendly Insulation More Sustainable?

If you’re looking for insulation that’s far better for the environment, then natural insulation is the perfect choice for you. Buildings and construction sites present some of the most resource intensive, toxic, wasteful and polluting areas of modern society. However, this needn’t be the case thanks to green options such as sheep wool or recycled plastic insulation.

Natural insulation is being integrated much more commonly into new build projects for its sustainability as well as other advantages over traditional synthetic options. Natural insulation materials are much more permeable and hygroscopic, meaning they absorb, redistribute and release moisture as humidity rises and falls to control internal moisture levels in the air.

What Sort of Roof Is Natural Insulation Good For?

Natural Insulation is highly versatile, able to be used for a range of requirements from lofts to walls and roofs. Their vapour-permeable qualities are particularly beneficial when your home or structure is vulnerable to moisture decay. Examples would include timber roofs, lightweight steel roofs, or older buildings made from traditional materials.

There are some cases where natural insulation cannot replace manmade materials however, as while natural materials wick moisture away effectively, if they get wet and cannot dry out they’re susceptible to rotting. So, we don’t recommend it for cavity walls between brick and block constructions.
