Pitched Roof: Ceiling Level

Application Overview

Insulation in cold lofts is installed in multiple layers. The first layer is laid between the ceiling joists, and subsequent layers are laid perpendicular to the ceiling joists. All edges must be butt-jointed to prevent thermal bridging and unwanted heat loss.

The primary consideration is thermal performance. Our loft insulation solutions provide excellent levels of thermal resistance in relation to the cost of installation, as the thickness is largely unrestricted.

Why Mineral Wool?

Mineral wool is a versatile insulation material that offers excellent thermal, fire safety, and acoustic performance. It is made from natural materials, such as rock or slag, and is non-combustible. Mineral wool is also moisture-resistant and can be used in a variety of applications, including walls, ceilings, floors, and roofs.

Here are some of the benefits of using mineral wool insulation:

  • High thermal performance: Mineral wool has a high R-value, which means it is very good at preventing heat loss. This can help to reduce energy bills and improve comfort.
  • Fire safety: Mineral wool is non-combustible and can help to protect your home from fire. It is also used in fireproofing applications, such as firewalls and fire doors.
  • Acoustic performance: Mineral wool is an excellent sound insulator. It can help to reduce noise levels in your home and create a more peaceful environment.
  • Easy to install: Mineral wool is easy to install and can be cut to fit any size space. It is also available in a variety of forms, such as batts, rolls, and loose-fill.
  • Environmentally friendly: Mineral wool is made from natural materials and is recyclable. It is a sustainable choice for insulation.

Pitched Roof: Rafter Level

Application Overview

Insulation can be friction-fitted between rafters. For further enhanced thermal performance, a layer of non-combustible material can be installed underneath the rafters.

Rooms in the roof are often used as bedrooms, where acoustic performance and sound reduction of external noise are essential considerations in addition to thermal performance. Our insulation solutions for warm roofs provide both thermal efficiency and acoustic performance.
