Knauf Insulation’s Supafil® Blowing Wool range has been named Best Site Product at the 2021 Housebuilder Product Awards.
The award recognises the product that best supports housebuilders in the construction and delivery of new homes. Judges were looking for a product that helped housebuilders to overcome the challenge of new regulations, improve build quality, deliver cost and time savings, and that is also sustainable.
"We’re proud of this recognition for the Supafil® range,” said James Hulbert, Head of Housing at Knauf Insulation. “We believe housebuilders rely on our systems and services to deliver sustainable homes quickly and cost-effectively. We’ll continue to invest in the teams who support our housing offer and innovations to meet the needs of the market, so we can support developers now and when building regulations change. We will have more news to share on this front soon.”
Knauf Insulation’s Supafil® range is backed up by a comprehensive support package comprising quality-controlled installation, training for site teams and technical expertise.
“The total Supafil® offer is far more than the product, it includes quality assurance, learning & development, and sustainability. This gives significant comfort to developers by preventing interruptions to the build programme, ensuring the quality and speed of installation, as well as building strong relationship between housebuilders, installers and us, the manufacturer,” explained Hulbert. “This results in better installs, reducing the potential for fabric related issues post-occupancy – giving happier homeowners living in sustainable homes that perform as designed.”
Supafil® Blowing Wool is a truly sustainable solution. This is demonstrated through its Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), which provides independently verified information about the environmental performance and health impacts of the product.
Supafil® Blowing Wool is manufactured from up to 80% recycled content. It is also the first Blowing Wool solution in Europe to be awarded the DECLARE Label ‘Red List Free’, which means it doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals.
The 2021 Housebuilder Product Awards will be presented at a ceremony later in the year.
