Insulation Roll is almost certainly the simplest insulating material for an amateur or home handyman to install, especially now that many of the suppliers perforate the rolls so they can be easily used at half width, one third width and two thirds width.
Choose the perfect Insulation Roll for your insulation needs from our comprehensive range which offers a range of different sizes and types of insulation from some of the UK's leading manufacturers such as;
Installation is made easier since many of the Insulation Rolls are pre-cut to fit between standard joist spaces in lofts, between stud partitions in walls and between floor joists. To further simplify matters, many of the manufacturers perforate the sheets to make them easily adjustable to one third, half and two thirds widths. In addition to the standard fibreglass Insulation Roll, buyers can choose rolls with acoustic dampening properties, fire resistance or, where space is limited use reflective foil rolls with a great R Value that have less depth and are slimmer than standard fibreglass rolls. You can get Insulation Rolls in a variety of designs which will be suitable for different situations. Our Foil Insulation is supplied mostly in rolls allowing ease of use as well as versatility. Insulation Rolls can be used in a variety of ways to maximise how much your house is insulated. It can be used as both Floor Insulation as well as Cavity Wall Insulation.
Making a Choice
Choosing the correct Insulation Roll for your needs is a much simpler process these days as most manufacturers produce rolls designed specifically sized for loft insulation, for cavity wall insulation and for floor insulation. As the Insulation Roll UK industry has advanced, they have produced a roll for most circumstances including where the space that is being insulated is too narrow for a standard roll. In these case the thin reflective foil rolls are perfect and still boast excellent R Values.
Adding insulation on top of insulation does reduce heat loss in direct proportion to the amount of insulation present, so a double thickness will be twice as effective as a single thickness. However, it is important to note that crushing or squashing an Insulation Roll does compromise its effectiveness since each roll relies on the air voids within it for its insulating properties. For the DIY enthusiast and for the professional installer, choosing the correct Insulation Roll for the task at hand is extremely important to minimise the time it takes to carry out the task and to ensure the area being insulated achieves its maximum thermal efficiency.
