Technologies and Capabilities

EES is the premier dealer for Knauf Insulation and Solatube products in North Queensland.

EarthWool™ by Knauf is a new advanced generation of “super soft” and highly sustainable glasswool that is not itchy and is easy to handle. It is made using recycled glass bottles, sand and ECOSE™ technology that is formaldehyde-free and contains no dye or artificial colours. It is based on rapidly renewable bio-based materials instead of petroleum-based chemicals which is up to 70% less energy intensive. Earthwool’s thermal and acoustical treatments for walls, ceilings and floors come in a wide range of sizes and R-values.

Solar Star, the leader in solar powered roof ventilation brings you the most technologically advanced, environmentally friendly ventilation solution today. Best of all, Solar Star brings you the solution that costs nothing to operate. It vents up to 180 m² of roof space with a high performing built in motor exchanging air at an impressive 1000 cubic metres per/hr. It has a 5 year warranty on the solar panel and motor and a 10 year warranty on all other components.

The Solar Stars we install in North Queensland are supplied with cyclone kits which consist of extra brackets to anchor the Solar Star
to the polypropylene flashing. The Solar Stars have been tested in the US & Canada to comply with Tornado requirements for residential and commercial premises. When tested for compliance in Australia, this testing was deemed to have exceeded the requirements for buildings in cyclone prone regions. We have installed hundreds of these units right across our region over the last 2 years and to this point there has been no issues with the failure of a Solar Star even after Cyclone Yasi.

Solatube Skylights allow you to turn the lights off. Imagine being able to daylight your most challenging projects - from schools to offices - and ensure that daylight levels are optimised for all your occupants. The light output is incredible, providing as much light as you would expect from a skylight many times its size. Installation is fast, clean and easy. The compact and flexible design allows installation into rooms without direct roof access and smaller spaces where day lighting would usually not be an option.
