Applegate Insulation has been in the business of insulating American homes (and the rest of the world) for the past 50 years. The family-owned business is a leader in the manufacture of cellulose insulation. The products are eco-friendly and energy efficient as Applegate cellulose insulation has a higher R-value than most brands. Its application method is more efficient than some methods. Applegate cellulose insulation is made of 85% recycled materials making this insulation material the “greenest” cellulose insulation material in the United States.
Applegate Insulation Products
Applegate insulation products are applied either sprayed or blown-in. All Applegate products meet the ASTM C739 standard and are LEED certified. There are four major products and they are as follows.
Applegate Loose-Fill Cellulose Insulation is known for its successful use in residential and small commercial buildings. This ‘green’ loose-fill insulation provides maximum comfort and safety. It is an energy saver as the R-value of Applegate Loose-fill cellulose insulation is higher than its competitor brands. Loose-fill insulation is a favorite among installers and DIY-ers because of ease in application. Less dust results in safe and quick installation. This brand is the first-ever loose-fill insulation made 30 year ago and is now the top in this area of insulating material. This insulation is best for attics, wall cavities, vaulted ceilings and flat decks.
Applegate Stabilized Cellulose Insulator is made from recycled paper, treated to make it fire resistant to optimal thermal performance. The cellulose insulator is damp-sprayed into cavity walls and unfinished attics to make them air tight. The cellulose insulation contains a form of dry-adhesive that activates through the damp-spraying. The resulting seamless blanket of cellulose insulation makes the walls and attic virtually air tight which significantly reduces air flow (in and out) and serves as a noise barrier and even conditions the air inside the home. The use of Applegate Stabilized Cellulose Insulator can reduce your electricity bill by 40%.
Applegate Bora-Spray is stabilized cellulose insulation contains high bora-spray but is sulfate free. Applegate only uses natural and pure Bora-Spray for a sulfate-free cellulose insulation material. This makes this product easier to apply as there is less dust thus allowing for optimal performance on the part of the installer at the shortest time possible. This material is fire-resistant and is best applied on stabilized attics and side wall cavities.
Applegate R Foam is the best solution for the re-insulation of walls with a low insulation performance. The R-foam can effectively “re-insulate” walls with batt insulation. The R-foam has a shaving cream consistency which allows it to compress and “flow” around existing batts and other obstructions inside the wall cavities. Applegate C Foam is used for the insulation of concrete masonry units.
