There are a plenty of products in the market that advertise as being energy efficient, some are great, and some are not.
Take your traditional brick and mortar home that will absorb heat all day long and require air-con all night long, or your old Queenslander home that let’s face it, has no chance of insulating against any season.
Perhaps it’s the mega companies that keep these ‘traditional materials’ on the market, because it does seem silly that these ancient technologies dating back thousands of years (that require us to dig up the earth or lop trees) are still so widely used when there are now remarkable alternatives.
Alternatives that are:
- Australian made.
- Cheaper to build with.
- Environmentally friendly.
- Faster to construct.
And just as importantly, materials that’ll make your home look like it should be featured on the cover of a magazine.
Koolwall, all Australian made and owned, super energy efficient cladding system that’s designed for our environment.
Koolwall is at its energy efficient core, a reinforced polystyrene cladding that’s lightweight, easy to cut and shape with minimal installation time. As the manufacturers of Koolwall, we’re proud to say that it’s the only system like it available on the Australian market today.
How energy efficient is Koolwall anyway?
In construction, the R-value indicates the material’s ability to resist heat- flow from one side to the other. R-values show the effectiveness of insulation – and the higher the number, the more effective the insulation when it comes to energy efficiency.
In other words, the higher the R-value, the less you’ll need to heat or cool your home.
The show just how energy efficient Koolwall is, here are the R-value ratings it can achieve:
Koolwall 40mm – 2.3 R
Koolwall 60mm – 2.8 R
Koolwall 75mm – 3 R
Let’s compare Koolwall to some other building materials:
Gypsum Wall Board standard – 0.45 R
Plywood standard – 0.62 R
Fibreboard sheathing standard – 1.32 R
Medium Density Particle Board – 0.53 R
Common Brick – 0.80 R
Face Brick – 0.44 R
Concrete Masonry standard – 0.80 R
Sandstone / Limestone – 0.08 R
Needless to say, few materials come close to Koolwall when it comes to insulation and building an energy efficiency home!
Certified by the most stringent Australian and NZ building authorities.
CodeMark is a certification scheme developed by the Australian Building Codes Board (ABCB), in consultation with the NZ Department of Building and Housing, Industry Groups and prospective Certifications Bodies.
This certification gives homeowners, builders and renovators the peace of mind and security that the product meets all Australian standards. In Koolwall’s case, we’re setting a few new benchmarks too.
Meeting all certifications is, however, just the beginning. Koolwall when installed correctly is backed by a full 10-year warranty.
Building with Koolwall, a true breeze.
Aside from it’s leading energy efficiency, Koolwall has truly revolutionised the way we build. It is simple and safe to cut and assemble, saving you significant time and money when compared to traditional building materials.
The Koolwall cladding system is also the only system on the Australian market that’s supplied in full, including Ezytrim PVC renders beads, the Ezycoat cement render, Ezycoat acrylic render and the Ezycoat paint.
Koolwall is designed and manufactured right here in Australia and the results of using Koolwell speak for itself:
