Black Mountain wool insulation is a general purpose natural wool fiber product designed for use in loft, rafter, internal wall, and inter-floor applications. Black Mountain meets and surpasses US building product standards for Thermal, Fire, Mold Resistance, and Structural performance. Natural wool insulation from Black Mountain USA is a healthy and green alternative.
Not only does Black Mountain use up to 90% less embodied energy in comparison to many man-made insulation products, the wool fibres used in their products permanently absorb significant quantities of carbon dioxide during their growth cycle. Therefore natural fibre insulations are ‘carbon negative’ – locking up a substantially higher level of carbon than used during their manufacture.
