The generation of energy using fossil fuels has resulted in greenhouse gas emissions (GHG), which have been linked to global warming and climate change. Insulation contributes to a more sustainable environment, by reducing energy consumption in buildings and industrial processes.

One Stop Insulation Shop supports sustainability in 3 key ways:

  1. Improving the living and working environment through greater thermal and acoustic comfort
  2. Saving energy and reducing the associated greenhouse gas emissions
  3. Reducing waste through environmentally sound manufacturing

One Stop Insulation Shop supplies Bradford glasswool products manufactured from up to 80% recycled glass, waste flat glass and bottle glass, depending on availability. In addition, the remaining glass is made primarily from sand - an abundant resource.

The rockwool process utilises up to 40% recycled scrap rockwool, using innovative briquetting technology developed by Bradford.

The glasswool and rockwool plants:

  • Recycle all water used in the manufacturing process
  • Use high efficiency world class process control technology
  • Maximise compression packaging to reduce transportation energy use
  • Comply with all relevant product and manufacturing standards including ISO9000 and AS/NZ 4859.1

The rockwool insulation products last the lifetime of the building and can be fully recycled, if left in their original condition.

Bradford glasswool and rockwool insulation uses no ozone depleting products (ODP) in manufacture, have low volatile organic componds (VOC) and low allergen, and have low embodied energy.

Bradford glasswool and rockwool are amongst the world's most sustainabile building products.
