Composed of 100% lofted thermally bonded polyester fibres, Mammoth is the first air-laid 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 competitors, ensuring less material is needed – leading to large savings in weight and costs. Furthermore, the semi-rigid nature of Mammoth panels, allow the material 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 an even more seamless finish.
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 panel that excels at being both a thermal insulator and an acoustic treatment. As well as the material properties, the semi-rigid fibre construction of Mammoth 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. On the environmental front, not only are Mammoth panels certified by the International Living Future Institute as being Red List Free, but they also contain a significant portion of recycled polyester fibres gathered from recycled polyester fibres and are produced in a near zero waste production process – all this adds up to an insulation panel with serious environmentally friendly credentials.
With recent trials at Monash University yielding fantastic results, several of Victoria’s largest tertiary education institutions have approached us about using Mammoth panels in 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.
