Different Types of Knauf Insulation and Their Uses
Here at JJ Roofing Supplies, we stock two of Knauf Insulations leading products: the Dritherm and Earthwool range. Both are trusted insulation materials that match up with modern energy-efficiency demands for new builds and for loft conversions in older properties.
Dritherm is, in technical terms, a non-combustible material made of Glass Mineral Wool slabs. Knauf Insulations trademark ECOSE technology and their own water repellent additives mean these insulation slabs are easy-to-install, eco-friendly and extremely effective in the home. Knauf suggests these are most easily installed while the walls are first being built, but they can be installed at a later date.
Knauf’s Earthwool range is much like the Dritherm range but available in rolls rather than bricks or slabs. This makes it even easier to shape, cut and install according to the exact parameters of your roof or loft space. Like Dritherm, Earthwool is manufactured with ECOSE tech and the same Glass Mineral Wool material.

The main benefit of Knauf Insulation is the fact that it’s quite easy to install at home on your own.
