CaraGreen distributing Havelock Wool Insulation
Havelock insulating material can be used for both new construction and remodels.
CaraGreen, a distributor of sustainable building materials, has added Havelock Wool Insulation to its collection of healthy building materials.
Havelock insulating material can be used for both new construction and remodels as it allows some 10,000 years of evolution as an insulator to protect spaces from the elements, CaraGreen said.
Wool is a well-known insulator but is unlike any other insulation medium with regard to moisture management. The inherent characteristics of the fiber allow for moisture to be regulated against 65% relative humidity – actively absorbing and desorbing. It is a keratin so it does not support the growth of mold.
Also unique is a wool fiber’s ability to increase air quality through passive filtration, CaraGreen said. The amino acids in wool will irreversibly bond with formaldehyde, nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide. Sound deadening is a further differentiator along with natural resistance to fire.
Based in Raleigh, N.C., CaraGreen distributes eco-friendly building materials throughout the country, including sustainable countertops, recycled insulation, and acoustical products.
