    The non-combustible permanent alternative to polystyrene and polyurethane. Proof against all rodents/insects etc. Expanded recycled glass beads 4-8mm in size, free-flowing loosefill, pouring or blowing, even into awkward spaces, lightweight, non-absorbent. Ideal for filling voids under floor, ceiling, cable ducts etc or as an aggregate for insulated floor screeds, Limecrete etc. Suitable for use under suspended wooden floors above a DPC in Victorian buildings etc, livestock buildings and other insulated concrete floors.

    High strength, high sound insulation performance, thermal conductivity W/(m-k) 0.066, environmentally friendly material. Does not age or decay.

    Identical to products such as Geocell, Poraver, Nebulight etc., similar to Leca but with somewhat higher insulation performance.

    Dear new subscriber,

    as I understand it, advertising is not allowed on the site.

    Not advertising - it is a genuine offer of a product we purchased for our self-build and we have surplus material to our requirements. We are not a business and only have limited availability. Is this not within the rules?

    Apologies - I hadn't realised that without being logged in I wouldn't see the full discussion string and that any direct messages were not notified to me via email.

    We are based in Norfolk and as mentioned, the material is stored in builders 'big bags' containing 0.50m3, each weighing approx 100kgs.

    The material is manufactured by another European company but very similar to Geocell - a spec sheet can be provided in PDF format if required.
