Profib® insulation is designed in compliance with the provisions of the National Building Code (NBC) and the National Energy Code for buildings (NECB).
Finally, wood and hemp fibers’ insulating properties have been studied and documented for several decades, particularly in Europe where interior and exterior insulation with these materials is a long-established practice. The growing popularity of bio-sourced materials for insulation has created such strong demand that manufacturers are struggling to adapt to the market.

Hemp fiber, like wood fiber and most other natural fibers, are highly effective insulating materials. The air contained in the fibers forms an excellent insulating layer.
In terms of the environment, our products capture more CO2 during their life cycle than they emit. They are a wise choice for the environment and for the health of building occupants.To discover all the advantages, click here

Flexible batt insulation is installed like any other insulation, filling the cavities between wood or steel framing. For detailed information on cutting tools and procedures, refer to the installation guide. Profib® Mat Installation Guide
Profib® Cell insulation is installed using the same tools and method as paper cellulose. It is recommended to hire a professional. For detailed information, refer to the installation guide. Profib® Cell Installation Guide
It is essential to protect the products from the elements during transport, storage and installation.
With Profib® products, it is recommended you use a moisture-regulating vapor barrier membrane whose permeability to water vapor varies according to the relative humidity. This will allow your natural fiber insulation to perform its role of controlling ambient humidity.
For our products, this means that when we calculate all the greenhouse gases emitted for harvesting, production and transport, they remain lower than those that were absorbed during the growth of our raw materials (tree bark, hemp cotton), keeping in mind that the final product can last for more than fifty years.You can access the detailed analysis here.
This makes Profib® insulation products able to absorb humidity in humid weather and release it in drier weather, thus creating unparalleled interior comfort.
