RHINO Batts are made from lightweight, flexible and resilient glasswool, specially designed for the thermal insulation of ceilings and walls in domestic and commercial buildings. Designed to improve the energy efficiency of a home keeping homes cooler in summer and warmer in winter. RHINO Batts for Wall & Ceiling are available in a range of sizes and R-values to suit any application.
The comprehensive range of sizes and R-values available ensures there is an efficient and effective RHINO Batts insulation solution available for any application. RHINO Batts insulation for wall applications are stiffened to fit snugly between standard spacing wall studs without sagging and should be installed at the time of construction before fixing internal lining.
In the event of RHINO Batts becoming wet, the insulation must be dried prior to installation to obtain maximise performance and prevent damage to other building elements. RHINO Batts absorb less than 0.2% moisture by volume when exposed to environmental conditions of 50°C at 95% relative humidity for four days.
AS1530.1 Test for Combustibility of Materials
In accordance with AS1530 Part 1 the glasswool in RHINO Batts insulation is non-combustible. The Building Code of Australia (BCA) deemed to satisfy provisions require walls important to the structural integrity of commercial buildings to be constructed wholly of materials that are non-combustible. Fire rated (FRL) walls between tenancies and common walls of multi-level apartment buildings also must be constructed wholly of materials that are non-combustible. The BCA states that if materials used in an assembly contain combustible components, then the assembly is combustible. Incorporating noncombustible RHINO Batts insulation into wall systems allows builders to gain acoustic and thermal benefits while still complying with the BCA requirement to maintain structural integrity and for minimising risk to occupants from smoke inhalation and fire in Class 2 to 9 buildings.
The insulation will not promote or accelerate the corrosion of steel or galvanised steel studs provided
the insulation is protected from external contamination.
Maximum Service Temperature
RHINO Batts have a maximum service temperature of 340°C.
Rhino Batts for Wall & Ceiling are available in a range sizes and R-values to suit any application.
