Wood fiber

Wood fiber boards consist of small wood chips from sawing waste. Wood fiber insulation is a form of cellulose insulation. The fibers are pressed together until wood fiber boards are created with high insulation values.

Wood fiber insulation

Is the plate too thick or too thin? Then the wood fiber board does not go to waste but is simply reused in the production process. This can be repeated up to 10 times. As a result, there is no loss of material.

Another reason that wood fiber insulation is sustainable compared to traditional (often chemical) insulation boards is that wood is a naturally renewable material. No toxic substances are released during the production process. In fact, it’s on the contrary, as trees neutralize the greenhouse effect by converting CO2 (greenhouse gas) into O2 (oxygen).

Even when a fiberboard has reached the end of its long life, it is not yet wasted, since the material can serve as a substrate in horticulture, compost or as fuel.

Durability of wood fiber insulation

Is the plate too thick or too thin? Then the wood fiber board does not go into the trash, but is simply reused in the production process. This can be repeated up to 10 times. As a result, there is no loss of material.

Another reason that wood fiber insulation is durable is the neutralizing effect of wood. Trees neutralize the greenhouse effect by converting their CO2 (greenhouse gas) into O2 (oxygen). This makes it a much more durable insulation material than, for example, wool or plastic materials.

Even when a fiberboard has reached the end of its long life, it is not yet wasted. The material can serve as a substrate in horticulture, compost or as fuel.
