The Loft Ceiling Insulation Kit, otherwise known as the Under Rafter Insulation Kit is great for those who are wanting to create a warm loft space and home.
As you may know heat rises and an uninsulated roof therefore leaves a passage for where your hard-earned boiler heat can escape.
You can retain the heat you pay for, by installing this Multifoil Insulation Solution. Moreover, you can be assured that it doesn’t have any nasty, itchy fibre glass either.
Start retaining the heat back into your home.
Can you install two layers of EcoQuilt Expert?
YES – This will massively improve the heat retension too.
When installing the first layer of insulation, staple it to the side of the roof rafters. Effectively weaving it in and out between the Rafters. Ensure that you have a 25mm gap behind the material, to enable the material to expand and reflect behind. Then, follow by stapling your second layer directly on to the roof rafters.
How to Insulate your Loft Ceiling
Install your first run of EcoQuilt Expert
Decide whether you would like to insulate vertically or horizontally, this decision usually depends on the length of your Roof Rafters. Then, roll out the Insulation and measure the amount of material required for a strip and cut, using the Multifoil Insulation Scissors supplied within the Loft Ceiling Insulation Kit: https://www.ecohome-insulation.com/product/loft-ceiling-insulation-kit/
Staple the EcoQuilt Expert in to Place
We advise that you staple every 300mm, to ensure that the Multifoil Insulation is held securely in place. Top Tip: Make sure the EcoQuilt is pulled taught, this will compress the layers and make the stapling process easier.
Install the next Layers of Multifoil
Ensure that you overlap the EcoQuilt by 50mm (minimum) - this will help to ensure that you have a continuous insulation layer. Failing to overlap will impact the performance, as it will allow for air to pass through.
Counter Batten (Optional)
Once all of your Roof Rafters are fully covered, you have successfully Insulated. If you are just using your loft for storage purposes, you may opt to leave your insulation exposed. If not, you can counter batten. Use 25mm x 38mm battens, these can be installed at right angled to the rafters. You can use battens that are deeper than 25mm should you wish. Battens will also be required for around the perimeters too.
You can now screw the plasterboard into the battens.
Want to Double the Performance?
You can - You just Install two layers. This process is a little different, so if you do opt to install two layers, read from here. Roll out the Multifoil Insulation, but instead of stapling it to the front of the rafters - you want to staple it to either side of the joist (halfway up). By doing this, you will create an air cavity either side of the product even when you add your second layer.
Staple Next Layer
Overlap the next layer of Multifoil again by 50mm. Continue this process until you have full coverage all over.
Install your Second Layer of EcoQuilt
The second layer of insulation should be installed taught across the joists, so you have an air gap behind it. Staple the second layer to the front of the Roof Rafters. When you have a continuous double layer - you can then decide whether you wish to leave it exposed / board. Head to step 4 if you would like to board over the Insulation.
Can I double up on the insulation?
Yes, you can do two layers of the EcoQuilt Expert Insulation. We recommend using a 25mm wooden batten over the first layer of insulation and attaching the second layer to the wooden battens. Or if the rafters of your loft are long enough you can recess the first layer of insulation into the rafters and then the second layer can sit across the rafters.
What should I use to cut the insulation?
In this kit, we provide a pair of 10” multifoil insulation scissors which are perfect for the job.
Do I need to overlap the insulation?
Yes, you do need to overlap the insulation otherwise you won’t get the best thermal performance. We don’t recommend taping and sealing the insulation in this application so overlapping the insulation will stop any draughts from getting in and warm air from escaping.
Will the foil insulation cause any problems with damp?
No, actually this will help prevent damp and mould and it’ll help reduce the risk of condensation.
Can I board over this insulation?
Yes, you can board over this insulation by adding wooden battens over the top of the insulation and attaching what you’d like to board over with to the wooden battens.
Do I need any specific PPE to complete this job?
No, you don’t need any protective clothing, masks, or safety goggles as there are no harmful fibres in the insulation.
