Underfloor Insulation is a key factor in creating a warmer, healthier home for you and your family. The right insulation reduces cold draughts, noise and will stay in place for many years to come.
Designed for New Zealand conditions
NOVAfloor Underfloor Insulation has been designed specifically for the adverse conditions that occur under New Zealand houses, with swirling winds, changing temperatures and rising damp. NOVAfloor is a heavy-duty, high-density polyester pad, that minimises airflow rising through floorboards, and because it is semi-rigid, it fits snugly between floor joists, eliminating air pockets and sagging over time.
The effectiveness of thermal insulation is measured by the R-value, which rates its thermal resistance.
When NOVAfloor Underfloor Insulation was released, the product was given an R-value of R1.4. That seemed a little low to us here at InsulPro; we were convinced that when correctly installed in a home(rather than tested in a laboratory), NOVAfloor would have a significantly higher R-value.
Performance – Guaranteed!
So we set about proving it, installing NOVAfloor under two homes and having its performance measured by an independent body over seven days. The results showed that NOVAfloor, as part of a system, achieved a maximum R-value of R2.18 and had only very small changes in its performance over the test period.
NOVAfloor underfloor insulation outperformed it’s thermal rating by over 50%!
We have also tested polyester blanket insulation. The lower density of the blanket insulation resulted in up to 41% decrease in its thermal performance.
Safe and Easy to Install
Needless to say, we were delighted that the NOVAfloor in situ testing confirmed what we’d expected.
NOVAfloor is 100% polyester and a high-density product. It is friction fitted between joists and it will out-perform other productssuch as underfloor blanket that have lower density and inconsistent surfaces, making them more susceptible to changes in environmental conditions.
NOVAfloor is not only the best choice for your home, it’s also good for the environment: made using fibres from recycled plastic b ottles, reducing landfill waste and lowering greenhouse gas emissions. This also means NOVAfloor is non-toxic, non-irritating and odourless, so it’s safe and easy to handle.

To give you and your family the best protection from the elements, high-density underfloor insulation is proven to be effe ctive, durable and safe.
