WHAT CAVITY WALL INSULATION COULD DO FOR YOUR HOME?
WHAT SOME OF OUR HAPPY CAVITY WALL INSULATION CLIENTS HAVE HAD TO SAY...
Year Round Comfort
We all know how extreme the Perth and WA climate can be. Temperatures can exceed high 30’s through to 40’s in the summer. Our winters can drop below 5 degrees in the evening and winter rain and cloud can prevent the home from ever heating up. InsulGuard Cavity Shield is designed to insulate your home and protect you from the external temperature variations.
In an average Australian home, up to 25% of your heat transfer occurs through your walls. Cavity Shield creates an esky-like environment protecting your home from the outside temperature differentials. Made from polystyrene, it works no different to the esky that keeps your beers cold in the summer or the thermos that keeps your coffee warm in the winter. The only difference is that this time it’s keeping your family comfy.
Save Up to 50% on Electricity
With Australia being one of the harshest climates in the world, heating and cool equates up to 50% of your energy use annually. Energy costs have risen by 60% in the last seven years and will continue to rise.
This leads to the reliance on artificial heating and cooling becoming more unaffordable. With the installation of Cavity Shield increasing the thermal performance of your walls, your reducing your reliance on artificial heating and cooling meaning that your energy costs can be reduced up to half!

What is Cavity Shield Cavity Wall Insulation?
InsulGuard Cavity Shield is a unique, locally made cavity wall insulation designed for Australian homes with a double brick cavity. Uninsulated, a double brick cavity offers little barrier between external temperatures. Cavity Shield sits between the inner skin and the outer skin of your double brick walls inside the vacant cavity. This creates a thermal break between the two brick skins, reducing heat transfer and protecting your home from external temperature changes.
Not dissimilar to a bean bag bead, Cavity Shield is made predominately from expanded polystyrene. No different from how a thermos keeps your coffee warm, or an esky keeps your beers cold, polystyrene is one of the most widely used insulators in the world.
We add graphite to the polystyrene which not only gives it the grey colour, but also increases the thermal performance of the product.
What is the Benefit of Cavity Shield?
In the average home, 25% of your heat escapes through the walls every winter, whilst in summer your walls can be responsible for up to 20% of your heat gain.
Uninsulated, a double brick cavity is thermally rated traditionally at R0.4. With the addition of Cavity Shield, a standard 50mm double brick cavity will improve your wall thermal rating to R1.8-R2.
According to the National House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS), in Western Australia this can improve your overall star rating by 0.8 – 1.2 star increase. This increase in energy efficiency makes your home more sustainable; reducing on power consumption and reducing your home’s carbon footprint.
Why Use Cavity Shield in Your Home
No Moisture Penetration or Retention
No Drilling into Walls - Non Invasive Installation
Remains Loose in Cavity So You Can Still Run Wiring
Unlike other retrofit cavity wall insulation products available on the market, Cavity Shield doesn’t enable water to get trapped in the cavity. Fibreglass, foam and rockwool insulation create pockets where water can sit in between the fibres and transfer laterally across the cavity from the external skin to your internal brickwork. The spherical nature of Cavity Shield means that water falls through the insulation and has no ability to travel across the cavity. As the bead is installed loose in the cavity wall, the cavity remains breathable and a moisture barrier as it was originally designed for.
