New Pink® Batts® insulation products for rental properties

New Pink® Batts® insulation products for rental properties
October 11, 2016

On July 1 2016 new requirements for landlords came into force as part of an amendment to the Residential Tenancies Act (RTA).  This included a requirement for all rental properties to be insulated by 1 July 2019.

The minimum R-values required under the RTA are lower than what is commonly used in ceilings for new houses so two new ceiling R-values have been developed for retrofit use across New Zealand.


These new products, like the rest of the Pink® Batts® ceiling Insulation range is covered under our Lifetime warranty “We believe our Pink® Batts® insulation products will provide you with quality performance for the life of your home.” Read our full warranty on

Why the Blue?

For these new products we’ve redesigned the packaging in “retrofit blue” so you know the bale is clearly identified as ‘right for retrofit’ rather than new build.

As a rental property owner entering your local merchant store you may not be certain of what the RTA means for you except that something needs to be done in your rental properties. With our blue packaging you can easily find the right product and know that with their correct installation you’ll be bringing your property up to the right Insulation levels.

Look out for our new retrofit brochures, posters and material in store and online to find out more about how PinkFit® and Pink® Batts® can bring your property up to the required levels.

Arrange your free PinkFit® insulation assessment.

Ask about PinkFit® at your preferred local building merchant, fill in a contact form and PinkFit® will contact you to arrange a suitable day and time.
