Pitched Roof: Ceiling Level (Cold Roof/Loft Insulation)

New Project (35).png

APPLICATION OVERVIEW

Our loft insulation solutions provide the most cost effective insulation solution with regards to the ratio of cost to energy saved as insulation thickness is largely unrestricted, allowing very high levels of thermal performance.

The first layer of insulation is laid between the joists to the same depth as the ceiling joists, with subsequent layers being laid at right angles to the ceiling joists, with all edges butt jointed to prevent thermal bridging and unwanted heat loss.

WHY MINERAL WOOL?

  • Insulating at ceiling level provides the most cost effective insulation solution in terms of ratio of cost to energy saved.

  • Very low U-values can be easily and economically achieved
