In a show of confidence in the Canadian building industry, Applegate Insulation recently had its Pennsylvania facility approved to market and sell Applegate Stabilized Cellulose in Canada. Consequently, the Eastern Provinces will now have access to the worlds’ premier cellulose insulation which has found wide-spread acceptance as the green building insulation for both site-built and manufactured homes.
Applegate is known for having pioneered the only hybrid liquid/powder fire retardant treatment for cellulose insulation. Because of the dual nature of their fire resistant system, the powders are locked into the insulating fibers giving Applegate less dust and a permanent treatment that allows them to offer a lifetime warranty on their insulation. Added benefits of Applegate Insulation is that it contains a minimum 85% recycled content and is widely accepted as meeting most green building criteria.
Applegate is also the only insulation manufacturer that offers a guaranteed heating and cooling cost for homeowners who re-insulate their home. Customers of Applegate also are afforded the opportunity of installation training, equipment leasing and sales workshops and access to the industry’s largest library of sales and marketing materials.
