Fiberglass Loft Insulation Rolls
Fibreglass is also referred to as glass wool and has excellent insulative properties. Fiberglass wool is manufactured by heating fine fibers of glass and sand. The molten sand and glass are then spun through an ultra-fine mesh. Binding material is added and then the mixture is cooled to give it a wool-like texture. This process is quite similar to how candy floss is made. The blend of materials is then further heated and calendared to give it strength and stability. This clever manufacturing process traps pockets of air between the glass. It is the pockets of air which help the product achieve high thermal performance. You can find glass wool insulation on our website from brands such as Knauf and Isover. A lot of insulation companies are now also using recycled glass to manufacture fibreglass insulation rolls, which makes them environmentally friendly.
Mineral Woll Loft Insulation Rolls
Mineral wool insulation is also known as stone wool or slag wool insulation. Rockwool is a known insulation brand that specialises in mineral wool products. Rockwool Loft Rolls boast high performance when it comes to insulating loft spaces. Their loft rolls are non-combustible and offer excellent thermal and acoustic properties. Mineral wool insulation is manufactured by spinning molten rock and minerals mixed with steel slag. The finished product resembles wool and is pressed into rolls. These rolls come in a variety of sizes.
Which loft roll material type is best
Both mineral wool and fibreglass have excellent thermal qualities. The major difference between the two is the raw materials used. Some people prefer mineral wool because they prefer natural materials. Another difference between mineral wool and fibreglass is the price. Fibreglass is more cost-effective and is best on a budget. Mineral wool tends to be denser, which means it has better acoustic properties. This makes it ideal in noisy areas. Fibreglass is also less effective when wet. Fibreglass and mineral wool stack up near on identical in terms of insulative qualities but it's best to check specifications per product. Our most popular product is the Knauf Loft Roll 44, which is made up from up to 80% recycled glass material.
Acoustic Loft Insulation Rolls
Acoustic loft rolls can be used in loft spaces to both insulate a loft and reduce noise pollution. Rockwool Loft Rolls offer excellent thermal and acoustic properties, which makes them a popular choice. Acoustic loft rolls are also often used in partition walls, ceilings, roofs and floors. They can reduce the impact of noise as well as keep a building able to retain heat, therefore, reducing the need for heating. This can reduce the cost of energy and therefore is also better for the planet.
How to install loft insulation roll
When loft insulation roll is correctly installed, it is one of the most cost-effective ways of reducing heating bills and keeping a building warm. The good news is that installing loft rolls is relatively easy.
Before you install loft rolls, you should make sure that the loft space is well lit and safe for you to work in. Joists that are cracked or damaged from rot are potentially unsafe to walk on. If they are damaged then you would need a professional to ensure they are fixed and safe before you attempt to install loft roll. If the joists are not damaged, you can place crawling boards between joists. You should never walk on joists directly as you could end up falling through the ceiling. The use of crawling boards helps you to distribute weight evenly. Once you place crawling boards, you should be safe to clear and clean the loft to create a good work environment. You should check to see if you have protruding light fittings in the loft from the rooms below. If you do, then cover them down with downlight covers, which are also known as downlight caps. To do this, you simply need to place them over the top. The purpose of these caps is to allow air to move around the light fitting and therefore circulate it. The circulation of air can help ensure that your light fittings do not get too hot.
Next, you need to work out how many loft insulation rolls you need. You can do this by multiplying the width and the height of the floor. The total will give you the area and let you know what coverage you need. You can check our website for the dimensions of our loft rolls as well as find the total coverage per pack. The government suggest you have at least 270mm thickness. This can easily be achieved by layering loft insulation rolls on top of each other to reach the suggested thickness. You would need to buy in more than your coverage required to allow for excess. If you are unsure about how much you need exactly, you can contact us and we can help guide you.
For laying loft insulation rolls, you would need an insulation cutter, some scissors and also PPE. We recommended that you wear gloves, a mask, goggles and also overalls. PPE is recommended because loft insulation rolls can irritate the skin. Make sure your loft has ventilation gaps at the eaves or has fitted loft ventilation. This ventilation gap must be maintained during and after installation.
Loft rolls can easily be cut to size. If your joists are 100mm high then you should lay the loft roll between the joists to make up the 100mm thickness. Once you have tightly laid the loft roll between the joists, you can then layer up to increase the overall thickness. The added layer of loft roll should be placed over the top at a 90-degree angle to achieve the minimum 270mm total thickness. When layering, start from the furthest point from the hatch and then spread the insulation over the top of the joists. It is important that you leave no gaps between the strips but you should leave your ventilation gaps at the eaves. This is to ensure the loft can stay properly ventilated.
Once you have covered your loft with loft insulation rolls, you could use the original packaging to help pack it in tight and wrap some of the fitted insulation in place.
It is believed that up to 5% of a building's heat is lost due to forgetting to insulate the hatch. You can easily insulate the hatch by cutting strips of loft roll material and stapling it to the hatch itself. This material can also be secured with PVA adhesive.
