COMPANY OVERVIEW

TimberHP by GO Lab, Inc. is a privately held, Maine-based building products corporation, founded in 2017, to develop and manufacture wood fiber insulation for the residential and light commercial construction markets. Wood fiber board, batt, blown-in high-performance insulation products are vapor open, renewable, recyclable, nontoxic, carbon sequestering and, when manufactured here in America, cost competitive with other popular insulation products.  In 2023, GO Lab will become one of the first companies to make wood fiber insulation in North America at its manufacturing facility in Madison, Maine.

TimberHP delivers on all fronts. Our TimberBoard, TimberBatt, and TimberFill provide high-performing, vapor open, non-toxic insulation with a stable R-Value that is healthy for people and the planet. 

Free of toxins, resistant to moisture liabilities, mold and fire, and offering superior properties to reduce heating and cooling loads, TimberHP wood fiber insulation is cost-competitive, easy to install (no hazmat suit or face mask required), and has been manufactured and used in Europe for more than twenty years. Tried and true, it's one of the fastest growing insulation materials on the market.

TimberHP products all begin in the same place: the abundant northern forest. We purchase Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) certified small diameter pulp trees and residual wood chips and process them at our factory in Madison, Maine. Important to our values as a company, TimberHP is supporting the working landscape, encouraging sustainable forestry practices, and providing important jobs in a rural economy.

ALL PRODUCTS

TimberHP Wood Fiber Insulation Products  

Product Available Fall 2023

TimberBoard™ excels as a vapor open, continuous insulation (CI) with a stable R-value, high heat capacity, and high compressive strength. A combination of density and low conductivity protects against heat loss in the winter and provides exceptional buffering of summertime heat gain. Wood fiber continuous insulation meets all residential fire standards and offers superior fire protection vs foam-based products. Wood fiber CI prevents the trapping of unwanted moisture within assemblies and offers the compressive strength required for efficient cladding installs. 

APPLICATIONS

  • Exterior continuous insulation

  • Interior insulation for walls, floors, and ceilings

Product Available Spring 2023

TimberFil™l offers exceptional and debris-free installs contractors appreciate, using the same machines and methods familiar to all fiber applications. Attic applications resist wind washing, and full-fill wall applications eliminate convective loops. Closed cavity applications can be installed at lower densities without risk of settling, resulting in cost and time savings, as well as exceptional sound and airflow reductions. 

APPLICATIONS

  • Dense pack cavity insulation in stud walls and between rafters and joists

  • Loose fill blanket insulation for attics

Product Available Summer 2023

TimberBatt™ is a flexible, press-fit cavity insulation composed of refined wood fiber with added binders and flame retardant. Its dense, high R-value per inch helps achieve Grade I installations. It outperforms other batt products as a safe, convenient, thermal and acoustic solution. TimberBatt can increase room comfort by buffering and managing indoor humidity as well as unwanted moisture accumulation within walls. 

APPLICATIONS

  • Thermal cavity insulation

  • Acoustic insulation for interior spaces and demising walls

Wood fiber insulation boards do many things well. One of them, it turns out, is helping to protect roofs on old, Cape-style homes from ice dams. The often shoddy building envelopes in these charming old houses allow warm air to reach the roof sheathing, where it initiates the winter cycle of thawing and refreezing that causes ice dams. A story in the year-end edition of Fine Homebuilding tells the story of a roof replacement on an old cape in Vermont.

By using a continuous exterior layer of wood fiber boards imported from Europe, along with blown cellulose, a taped air barrier and improved passive ventilation, the construction team ensures that the new roof assembly can meet the harsh demands of a New England winter!

Beyond R-Value Educational Series: What is Wood Fiber with Scott Johnston

Our monthly Beyond R-Value Continuing Education webinars, taking place every third Thursday of the month, are a great opportunity to learn about us, our products or to dive deep into a specific topic with one of our presenters.

This month we will present "Solving Performance Demands Using Wood Fiber Insulation". Through our continuing education partnership with AIA, webinar attendees can earn 1 LU|HSW.

Wood fiber insulation is now being produced in America. Learn how wood fiber insulation can help provide high performance above grade insulation products to create wind-tight, vapor-open assemblies offering stable, long-term R-values, improved temperature stability, and robust sound protection. A review of current insulation available today and an introduction to wood fiber insulation as a readily available alternative solution. A deep dive into current code compliant assemblies with the introduction of wood fiber insulation and how it fits into the wall assembly to provide a vapor open alternative. Finishing the session by discussing the current state of building materials carbon emissions impact and how Life Cycle Analysis help reveal impact areas that need to be addressed. Carbon sequestration can help dramatically reduce carbon emissions and wood fiber insulation offers can help.
