Product Summary

Australian-made Kingspan AIR-CELL Glareshield is a patented thermo reflective anti-glare insulation.

Kingspan AIR-CELL products are designed to combat heat gain and heat loss in all three forms (radiation, convection and conduction), resulting in thermal performance superior to many conventional insulations.

In addition, Kingspan AIR-CELL Glareshield is non-allergenic, non-irritant and has none of the health and safety warnings associated with using many conventional bulk insulations.

  • 3-in-1 Insulation, vapour barrier, and radiant barrier
  • Fibre-free
  • Anti-bacterial and anti-fungal
  • CodeMark-certified for BCA compliance
