Mammoth™ insulation is manufactured in New Zealand by InsulPro.
Mammoth™ modern insulation is manufactured by InsulPro - a New Zealand owned and operated manufacturer of polyster thermal and acoustic insulation - supplying the local New Zealand market and export markets with a range of insulation products for the home or commercial building.
We have manufacturing facilities in Auckland and Milton, near Dunedin and are backed by a team of experts. Visit the InsulPro website.
Mammoth™ polyester insulation products help create warmer, healthier, more energy efficient environments which helps to improve people's health in addition to reducing carbon emissions. Our thermal and acoustic insulation products are designed to maximise thermal performance across the construction system and products independently tested proved to outperform their product R-values.
A Sustainable Choice
We have proudly been awarded the World's first insulation manufacturer to be carboNZero certified.
We feel it is important to consider the environment in all facets of our business and so measuring and monitoring our impact is the only way to understand how we can improve. Our measured carbon emissions will be off-set, monitored and continually reduced through a variety of smarter business practices. We can also boast that all our Mammoth polyester insulation products are Red List Free.
Red List Free
The Living Building Challenge™ developed a Red List of prohibited materials under the Declare Programme to provide transparency around the building products. Declare is a 'nutrition label' for the international building industry and is a voluntary self-disclosure programme aiming for healthier and more ecological products in construction. Red List Free products are shown to be free from Declare's red list of ingredients.

We worked alongside one of our environmentally conscious customers to construct Tuhoe headquarters in Whakatane - New Zealand's most environmentally and socially sustainable building - built in accordance with the stringent Living Building Challenge's guidelines.
Environmental Choice is the official environmental labelling programme. This programme, which commenced in 1992, operates independently from the government but the label is government owned and endorsed.

From Waste to Warmth
We take fibre made from plastic bottles, which would otherwise be waste, and manufacture the fibre from the bottles into polyester insulation that creates warmer, healthier homes and buildings.
The Mammoth thermal and acoustic insulation range is made from 100% polyester fibre. Polyester is made from a substance called PET, which is what plastic bottles are made from. Another benefit is that PET can easily be recycled. Plastic bottles made from PET can be washed and ground up into flakes, heated and then extruded into polyester fibre. This is how the recycled fibre used by InsulPro is made.
InsulPro has worked with recycled polyester fibre for over a decade and is committed to using the maximum possible in all products. Along with using recycled fibres, our product is recyclable, this means all of our waste is able to be fed back through the manufacturing process. Polyester, PET, is the same material that plastic bottles are made from.
All Mammoth products are safe and easy to work with. They will not cause irritation when touched and are chemical free – no pesticides, insecticides and formaldehyde. All our polyester insulation products are thermally bonded which means there are no glues or bonding agents.
New Zealand Green Building Council
Homestar and Greenstar is New Zealand's environmental and energy efficiency rating for both new and existing homes. It's a voluntary rating system developed by BRANZ and the New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC).
The Homestar rating scale goes from 1 (very poor) through to 10 (world class). Points are awarded in nine credit categories, with the most important category being Energy, Health and Comfort. High levels of insulation (ie: above the minimum Building Code requirements) using products such as Mammoth, will help homes achieve higher Homestar ratings. All Mammoth products with Environmental Choice certification contribute to Homestar and Greenstar accreditation.
