EcoPro Cellar Insulation Kit
EcoPro Cellar Insulation Kit
Fully insulate your cold and draughty cellar
Our EcoPro Cellar Insulation Kit is ideal for insulating cold and draughty Cellars.
EcoQuilt Expert Insulation has 6 layers of highly reflective foil and wadding and also has a built-in vapour control layer when taped and sealed with Thermaseal foil joining tape which is provided with the kit. Cellars can contain a lot of moisture and dampness which can lead to issues with mould so taping and sealing the EcoQuilt will help protect your home from these issues.
It can be used to insulate both the walls as well as the ceiling of the Cellar if you are completing a cellar conversion or it can be used for the ceiling to prevent cold bridging from below.
At just 15mm thick in its open state, EcoQuilt compresses down to only 6mm thick, if the ceiling of the cellar is quite low this is the perfect solution for you. It’s equivalent to around 50mm of rigid board such as Kingspan or 100mm of Rockwool!
The EcoPro Cellar Insulation Kit is designed to reflect the heat into your home rather than escape through the cellar. It’ll also prevent cold draughts from rising through the floorboard from the cellar and maintain a much more ambient temperature within your home.

How to Install the EcoPro Cellar Insulation Kit
Insulate the ceiling of the cellar
Start by stapling EcoQuilt Expert to the ceiling joists using the Heavy Duty Staple Gun Kit. Ensure that the material is pulled taut across onto the next rafter. Then, Staple down the second rafter at a maximum of 2 inches apart.
Secure & Cut off any excess
Once you have secured the first section, cut any excess material off with the sharp blade provided in the EcoPro Cellar Insulation Kit.
Repeat the process
Install the next section in the exact same way, stapling to the joists and cutting off any excess. Remember to ensure a 50mm overlap of material.
Seal with ThermaSeal Foil Joining Tape
Once you’ve stapled your EcoQuilt, it’s now time to seal all of the joints and perimeter with ThermaSeal Foil Joining Tape. This is what creates the Vapour Control barrier.
Fixing your Ceiling counter battens
Now you can fix the 19mm battens to secure your EcoQuilt, using screws with a minimum length of 35mm like the Multifoil Insulation Screws. Fix the remaining battens in the same way. Now, you are ready to install the surface finish of your choice. However, you can leave the insulation bare if it's not being used as a livable room. If you're just insulating the ceiling stop here or carry on to the next step if you're insulating the walls as well.
It’s time to insulate the walls
For buildings with existing stud work, hold your insulation into place and simply recess the EcoQuilt halfway back by stapling it onto the side of the stud. Ensure a 19mm air gap on either side of the insulation. Then continue by pulling the material taut before securing it onto the next timber stud. Ensure EcoQuilt is stapled at minimum intervals of 300mm, using the 14mm staples provided.
Attaching battens (if needed)
If your space does not have timber uprights, you can fit 19mm battens onto the walls using screws prior to step 6.
Seal the with ThermaSeal Foil Joining Tape
Now that all of your EcoQuilt is stapled into position, it’s time to seal all overlapping joints and around the perimeter with ThermaSeal Foil Joining Tape to ensure an airtight seal.
Fixing your wall counter battens
As you did with the ceiling, fix the 19mm battens to secure your EcoQuilt using screws with a minimum length of 35mm. Fix the battens, in the same place as the existing wall studs. Repeat the exact same process. Now you’re ready to install the final surface finish of your choice and decorate!
