Things You’ll Need to Install Multifoil Insulation

Multifoil Insulation is a versatile and effective method of insulating buildings, providing a barrier against heat transfer and reducing energy consumption. It consists of layers of reflective foil, typically aluminium, with layers of wadding, foam, or a bubble membrane. This combination creates a barrier that reflects radiant heat, keeping the indoor environment cooler in summer and warmer in winter.

Heavy Duty Staple Gun Kit

A good quality Heavy Duty Staple Gun can speed up the installation process massively. Included with your Staple Gun you’ll receive 5,000 14mm Staples which will be able to pierce all types of multifoil insulation and attach it to the rafters, joists as well as floorboards beneath.

Multifoil Insulation Scissors

Thicker insulation like YBS SuperQuilt which is made from True Aluminium Foil and wadding can be a little more tricky to cut through and dull a pair of scissors. We have created the Multifoil Insulation Scissors which are heavy duty and will also cut through all types of insulation with ease.
