Flax 100

Flax slabs for thermal and acoustic insulation

Flax 100 insulation

Flax 100 can be used in walls, roofs, floors and ceilings for both domestic and commercial buildings. It has good thermal properties and includes no synthetic material.

Available to special order only

  • Good thermal insulation and moisture absorption properties
  • Non-toxic and non-irritant to the touch
  • Safe and easy to install
  • Environmentally friendly, 100% natural product
  • Minimal processing during manufacture
  • Renewable resource
  • Buildings using flax insulation are comfortable, healthy and fire-safe
  • Suitable for refurbishment and new build
  • Exclusively for use with ventilated or breathing constructions

Flax 100 is capable of stabilising the indoor climate, because it has the ability to absorb large amounts of moisture. This prevents deterioration of the building fabric, and reduces the risk of timber rotting or being attacked by mould or fungus.

Flax insulation allows more awkward insulation problems to be resolved very quickly. The fibres are bound together with potato starch making the product completely natural. Borax is added for fire protection and insect resistance.
