Bradford Black feels good. We put in 250m2 of insulation yesterday, no dramas. We didn't go home itchy as not much fibre dropped - it’s done well.

We used to use Earthwool but it doesn’t hold its form, when you open up the bag it stays flat, Black takes its full-size straightaway which is good, then the client sees it and they’re happy with it. It was really easy to install and it'll fill the space. We'll be using Bradford Black again for sure.

I'm an architect and do a lot of commercial buildings and always specify Bradford, so when I saw a new Bradford product I thought I'd try it for a residential property I own.

Only recently installed it so I can’t speak to performance, but the handling is quite easy, as well as the cutting, compared to Earthwool. Earthwool is a bit soft when you put it into the wall, whereas Black fills the whole wall. It’s almost like a form and is easy to cut with a sharp knife. The product is good for handling.

I ordered online from Insulfix which was very easy, and the delivery guy was very helpful, he called an hour beforehand as requested and arrived on time.

Black is is soft, easy to handle and sturdy. When I've opened a package of Earthwool I was disappointed as it doesn’t fill up the gap - it’s too floppy. As an architect, I know it’s important to fill all the gaps, in the long term Earthwool will drop slowly to the ground. And it’s no use if it doesn’t fill up the whole space.

Bradford Black is worth it for the price because it works.

I saw Bradford Black rel="noopener noreferrer" as a new product on the Insulfix website and thought try it out, see what it's like.

I tend to choose different insulation for different jobs, depending on the requirements. For this, I'm putting up a ceiling and don't want to get covered in itches. Bradford Black feels nice and soft and doesn't shed much at all. For the right job it's a good thing, saves you time because you're not constantly worrying about getting itchy. It holds the form well too. I like it and will definitely use it again.
