Mammoth insulation panels from Composite Global Solutions were specified for the Anglers Arms project in Brisbane for meeting cost, appeal, installation, and thermal and acoustic objectives.

Designed by CAYAS Architects for the Lion Brewery Group, the Anglers Arms is expected to be a premier entertainment destination upon completion of the extension and refurbishment project in 2017.

The designers at CAYAS Architects chose Mammoth panels for a variety of reasons. Mammoth panels not only presented a more appealing soffit insulation compared to other typically foil-faced products, but were also available at a lower cost with additional advantages in terms of simpler installation, and combined thermal and acoustic benefits. Mammoth panels provide both thermal as well as acoustic insulation.

Key features of Mammoth insulation panels include semi-rigid fibre construction allowing for a seamless, organic finish with more aesthetically pleasing results than harsh PIR foil or fibre-faced panels; excellent thermal performance reducing need for active heating and cooling; acoustic treatment minimising sound transfer and reverberation to create comfortable spaces; 100% lofted thermally bonded polyester fibre composition; and randomised fibre construction offering higher rigidity to density ratio than competitors, ensuring less material is needed, and achieving large savings in weight and costs.

Mammoth is the first polyester insulation product on the market to be given an AS ISO 9705 fire rating. The semi-rigid nature of Mammoth panels allows the material to conform to irregularities common in concrete formwork.

Mammoth panels can be fixed with glue or fasteners; however, Composite Global Solutions recommends that the panels be installed using glue to ensure an even more seamless finish.
