We have designed the moduLog to be used all year round in any weather.
We wanted to use an environmentally friendly product as we have used this green approach all throughout its build.
We use the sheep wool insulation as it offers better performance than most mineral fibre insulation and can also contribute to a healthier indoor environment by acting as a moisture buffer and absorbing indoor pollutants.
Sheep wool insulation not only keeps you warm but it also keeps you cool on warm days. When the outside temperature increases and begins to heat the wool insulation, it releases moisture, which has a cooling effect on the fibre. This will reduce the flow of heat to the inside of the pod.We also use a foil back layered insulation to go hand in hand with the sheep wool to make sure the moduLogs are nice and cosy in the winter and lovely and cool in the summer.
Sheep wool insulation also contains a lofting agent to maintain structural integrity this provides a consistent performance of its 60 year plus life span. Mineral fibres and low density synthetic fibre insulation on the other hand are prone to slumping which reduce the performance of the insulation by typically 25% during service.
Sheep wool insulation contains natural fibres that pose no threat to the environment and can be safely recycled and because wool captures carbon dioxide as the fleece grows, this helps reduce global warming.
So there you have it, we are not only keeping the moduLogs warm in winter, cool in summer but also helping British sheep farmers by using their wool and saving the planet all at the same time.
