DIO is a specialist insulation division of Direct Plasterboard Outlet Canberra.
It all started back in 1998 when a young Barry Morcom opened up his first plasterboard distribution business in Campbelltown NSW. Through his hard work, his network of stores quickly grew to 6 stores. In 2001 Barry purchased a very small plasterboard shed in Fyshwick ACT and quickly opened a second Canberra store in Mitchell. In 2011 he rebranded his stores as DPO.
Canberra builders at the time were in need of a reliable supply and fit insulation service. DIO was created for this and quickly became a leading supplier of insulation to builders and commercial developers. Wanting to increase the offering to consumers, Barry launched the DIO website in 2018. And here we are today, an Australian business still owned by Barry, still working at giving the best service to our customers. Our network of stores now totals 10, so Barry and the team are busier than ever, giving you the best customer service we can.
With rising energy costs and higher building standards, insulation has become a very important component of a new build, renovation or retro-fit in ceilings. DIO aim to be your local insulation experts, and with our online offering we plan on giving you the advice, know-how and latest products to get your job done. Stay tuned for more product releases in the future.

DIO are one of our most trusted suppliers. Their customer service is outstanding and they don't make promises they can't keep, which is important to us in keeping projects on schedule. They stock the products we we use and recommend, products that are market leading in terms of sustainability and performance such as Knauf earth wool insulation and DuPont tyvek home wraps and tapes.Dan - Architekt Homes
I purchased Earthwool from DIO for the first time on a little bathroom renovation a few weeks back and from what I can tell you I received more m2 per pack than other manufacturers. I got the whole order into the back of my ute , the results I got acoustically were very good and the Knauf Earthwool was nowhere near as itchy as some of the other brands! I will be using DIO on our next “NEW Home” project.
Thanks very much for the great service.
I have dealt with DIO on two occasions now and have always found their staff very friendly and helpful. Team member arrived at the date and time given and provided some very helpful advice.
I have no hesitation in using DIO again and highly recommend to family, friends and others to use them.
I would like to leave a compliment for Dave and the staff at DIO for the excellent customer service provided yesterday.
After encountering some problems ordering from the website, I contacted DIO by phone and Dave was only too happy to confirm the order via phone and ensure free delivery. Within three hours, the insulation was delivered to my door. Three hours!
I can't thank you all enough for such a swift response considering the time pressures we are under with the build.
DIO is clearly the premium option for insulation in Canberra, and I'll be making sure everyone knows this in future.
