Mammoth panels have really started to gain traction since their introduction to the Australian market in early 2015. Builders and architects alike have recognised the benefits of having a soffit panel that excels at being both a thermal insulator and an acoustic treatment. Furthermore, the semi-rigid fibre construction of Mammoth soffit insulation panels allow for a seamless, organic finish that is far more aesthetically pleasing than most harsh PIR foil or fibre-faced panels available on the Australian market today.
With recent trials at Monash University yielding great results, several of Victoria’s largest tertiary education institutions have approached us regarding their upcoming projects. Mammoth panels are ideally suited to large indoor expanses like libraries, study halls and lecture theatres. The thermal performance of the panels lead to a reduced need for active heating and cooling, while the acoustic benefits ensure sound transfer and reverberation are kept to a minimum – resulting in comfortable spaces that allow for clarity of thought and mind.
Composed of 100% lofted thermally bonded polyester fibres, Mammoth is the first polyester insulation on the market to be given an AS ISO 9705 fire rating. Because of its randomised-fibre construction, Mammoth panels have a far higher rigidity to density ratio than its competitors, ensuring less material is needed – leading to large savings in weight and costs. Panels are semi-rigid, allowing the panels to conform to irregularities common in concrete formwork. While Mammoth panels can be fixed with either glue or fasteners, we at Composite Global Solutions recommend using glue to ensure a seamless finish.
