Knauf Insulation Product certifications
GreenTag™ is a third party, green building product rating and certification system putting certified products within the top end of the green product market. GreenTag is supported by the Green Building Council of Australia.
The certification makes it easy for designers and building owners to gain rewards under Green Star credits system. Earthwool® is the first and only glasswool insulation in Australia and New Zealand to have GreenRate™ Level A certification.
BRANZ is an independent and impartial research, testing and consulting organisation that has an in-depth knowledge of both the New Zealand and Australian Building Codes.
We use BRANZ Appraisals to demonstrate compliance with the Building Code requirement, AS/NZS 4859.1 thermal requirements and to demonstrate that the products are fit for use.
CodeMark™ provides confidence to regulatory authorities and end-users that certified products meet the requirements of the Australian or New Zealand Building Code.
State and Territory legislation requires building approval authorities to accept CodeMark™ certificates as evidence of compliance with the Building Code. We have selected CodeMark™ certification to provide compliant support systems that are new to the market.
All glasswool products manufactured by Knauf Insulation are made of non-classified fibres (fibres that are less bio-persistent than every day dust) and are certified by EUCEB. EUCEB, European Certification Board of Mineral Wool Products - www.euceb.org, is a voluntary initiative by the mineral wool industry. It is an independent certification authority that guarantees that products are made of fibres, which comply with the exoneration criteria for carcinogenicity (Note Q) of the Regulation (EC) 1272/2008.To help user’s identify the safety of our glasswool fibres the EUCEB logo is displayed on our product packaging and/or labels.
Eurofins “Indoor Air Comfort” (IAC) product certification is an innovative tool to show compliance of a product with low VOC emissions.
Earthwool® is certified as achieving a Gold Standard – this is the broadest standard available today that meets all existing criteria with regards to Indoor Air Quality.
Non-combustible is a defined term in the Building Code of Australia (BCA). The compliance of a material to the Building Code of Australia (BCA) non-combustibility definition can be determined by conducting an AS1530.1 standard combustibility test.
If the material satisfies the criteria outlined in the test method the material is not deemed combustible. Knauf Insulation products have been independently tested in NATA accredited laboratories; giving end users confidence in the standard of the test and procedures.
