Agricon™

Bradford AgriconTM Roofing Blanket is lightweight insulation specially designed for agricultural and animal husbandry buildings.

Bradford AgriconTM consists of a glasswool blanket adhered to a coloured polyweave facing. The blanket is manufactured by spinning  molten glass, containing up to 80% recycled content, into fine wool like fibres. These are bonded together using a thermosetting resin. The  Polyweave facing is adhered to one face and extends 300mm beyond one longitudinal edge of the blanket. The product can be identified by its golden appearance and the coloured Polyweave facing.

Applications

AgriconTM Roofing Blanket is designed to provide efficient thermal insulation and condensartion control under metal deck, fibrous cement and concrete roofs in agricultural and animal husbandry buildings. The Polyweave is designed to protect the insulationa and allow washing down of the surface over time. Typical applications include;

  • Chicken hatcheries
  • Piggeries


AgriconTM blanket is supplied with facing overlap of 300mm designed to prevent ingress of water from wash down provided the AgriconTM blanket is sufficiently supported by safety mesh. High pressure washing must be directed away from the overlap. For additional prevention of water ingress taping of joints should be carried out.
