Applegate Insulation, a Webberville, Mich.-based company, has recently gained licensure to market both Applegate loose-fill and Applegate stabilized cellulose in California. The cellulose insulation supplier was actively marketed on the West Coast in the 1980s and ’90s. A recent acquisition in Colorado brought the company back into the California market, making the product available nationwide.
Applegate produces a hybrid liquid/powder fire retardant treatment for cellulose insulation. The fire-resistant powders are locked into the insulating fibers, giving Applegate less dust and a permanent treatment that carries a lifetime warranty on the insulation, according to the company. Applegate Insulations contain a minimum 85% recycled content.
Applegate currently operates facilities in Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Georgia, Louisiana and Colorado.
