Advanced insulation Solutions to meet the
NEW H1 Standards
Focused on continuous insulation - we are committed to delivering innovative solutions to thermally wrap the building envelope.
Outright Continuous Insulation provides advanced insulation products that increase the thermal, acoustic and fire performance of the structure.
For a superior insulation design, a simple test is to draw a line on the insulation layer and try to encircle the entire building without lifting the pen.
'Outsulation' - insulation outside the structure - is the only way to meet this challenge

h1 compliant roofs
With the recent changes to H1, the government has presented the building industry with a challenge by doubling the roof insulation levels required in New Zealand buildings.
Such a significant change cannot be met with incremental changes to the status quo. Instead, the industry must review our approaches holistically, while relying on both building science
and international best practice.
We trust that this guide will be a useful resource for anyone wishing to meet that challenge – without risking unintended consequences.
Every building should have continuous insulation
We want to build New Zealand better. We are passionate about sustainably maximising the thermal performance of the building envelope. Delivering products that enable specifiers to design energy efficient buildings with no thermal bridging is our goal.
Heat is lost through thermally broken sections in your home, with warm air travelling out at three times the speed of cold air coming in. We want to continously insulate to avoid energy and heat loss to save money and power.
Walls designer's guide
The focus for this guide is Outsulation – specifically the practice of placing insulation outside the wall structure and within the façade buildup instead.
It is common practice internationally and is mandatory in some jurisdictions. We hope that this guide will contribute to the practice of Outsulation gaining widespread acceptance in New Zealand too.

building envelopes must take account of four factors
1) Shed Water
2) Airflow Prevention
3) Thermal Blanket
4) Vapour Control
