MORRIS TOWNSHIP, N.J., May 6 ,
2010/PRNewswire/ —
Honeywell announced a strategic partnership with US
GreenFiber LLC, the largest U.S. manufacturer of natural fiber
insulation, for the Honeywell’s Enovate PRO Weatherization Contractor
Program.

 

Under the partnership, GreenFiber
will become a distributor of Honeywell’s new line of weatherization products,
which are available only to contractors who are certified under Honeywell’s
weatherization contractor program. GreenFiber will also help select contractor
partners to become part of the program, which is designed to help contractors
expand their business offerings in the area of air sealing and weatherization
for homes and commercial buildings.

 

GreenFiber, which recently
introduced a new, premium all borate blow-in natural fiber insulation that is
ideal for retrofit projects, this year launched a training program to help
contractors grow their businesses through weatherization improvement
projects.

 

The Honeywell weatherization
contractor program is designed to provide insulation, HVAC and other contractors
with professional development training specifically designed to allow them to
perform air sealing and weatherization work on homes or commercial buildings.
The training includes analyzing the building envelope; methods and products for
air sealing and weatherization; and health and safety best practices. In
addition to being trained by Honeywell, contractors are required to become
certified by the Building Performance Institute (BPI) in order to become
Authorized Honeywell EnovatePRO Contractors. These contractors then have access
to Honeywell EnovatePRO products and materials, including foam sealants and
commercial grade weather stripping, used to perform weatherization contracting
work.

 

Established in 2000 and
headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., GreenFiber is the largest manufacturer of
natural fiber insulation, fire and sound products and the only cellulose
manufacturer to receive Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) certification for
their natural fiber insulation product manufactured from 85 percent recycled
content
