Update: The BIM v2.0-2018 Building Insulation Materials standard has now superseded GECA 33-2007 Thermal Building Insulation Materials.
High quality thermal insulation plays a vital role in the energy efficiency of a building. Reducing heating and cooling requirements means reduced greenhouse gas emissions, as well as improving indoor comfort levels, keeping surfaces cool in summer but warm during winter. However, the manufacture of insulation products can have negative environmental impacts depending on the processes involved.
Products covered by the standard include bulk insulation materials used in building applications, namely resistive-type boards, blankets, batts and loose-fill or spray-on thermal insulation.
Earlier this month, the Living Future Institute of Australia announced the appointment of its first industry-lead Technical Working Group after a public call for expressions of interest. Our Standards & Technical Officer, Deepali Ghadge, is one of the 18 appointed members, representing experts from a broad range of industries, organisations and experiences.Read More See all news
