The Town that came in from the Cold

In August 2012, Knauf Insulation completed a 12 month project to insulate every single home and most commercial buildings in Ophir, from the pub to the church, warming up the lives of the 50 residents of the small town and the thousands of rail trail visitors that pass through every year.

Birdsville: Australia's most isolated and insulated town

At Knauf Insulation we have a track record of rolling up our sleeves and helping local communities realise the benefits of insulation. The Birdsville project is one of our proudest moments. In January 2014, temperatures in Birdsville, one of Australia's hottest and most isolated towns, reached over 49 degrees. During winter however, the town can reach below 0 degrees at night. What better place to show Australia just how effective using the right kind of insulation can be at improving the internal comfort of the home?
