Check out our range of insulation slabs from brands such as Rockwool, Knauf, and Isover. We provide expert advice on cavity slabs, rainscreen, acoustic, and general-purpose slabs. An insulation slab can be used almost anywhere in a building, whether it’s on the roof, walls, floors, or loft. If you need assistance, feel free to get in touch with us. We are happy to help find insulation boards.
Each insulation slab offers different sizes, thicknesses, and densities, providing an effective solution for any residential or commercial property including flats, offices, hospitals, shopping centres and schools.
The slabs come in lengths of 1200mm by either 400mm, 455mm, or 600mm. The thermal conductivity of the insulation slabs ranges between 0.032W/mK and 0.038W/mK. The insulation slabs are made up of glass mineral wool, Stonewool, and Rock mineral wool. The insulation slab materials are extremely durable and long last lasting.
Insulation slabs create a more temperature-controlled environment keeping your property warm in the winter and cool in the summer. By reducing the heat levels escaping the property, insulation slabs can reduce energy bills and have a positive effect on the fight against climate change.

How to install insulation slabs
Measure the spaces within the frame rafter or joist where you will be applying the insulation. Note that not all sizes of the spacings within the frame will be consistent, particularly within older structures. Each insulation slab should be measured and cut to specifically fit each section of the frame.
Use an insulation saw, or sharp knife with a serrated blade, to cut the insulation to size if required. Do not overcut the insulation. Allow an extra 10mm on both dimensions (width and length) of the insulation, over and above the aperture dimensions.
The density and dimensional stability of ROCKWOOL stone wool allows tight friction to fit. The insulation slabs will not require pinning or fixings unless specifically stated otherwise. To install, simply push the insulation into one side of the structure and let the insulation go so it tightly fits into the other side of the structure and holds in place. Ensure there are no visible gaps, as this will have effects on the thermal performance.
Continue until the frame is full. Off cuts can be kept and used to fill smaller gaps. The project can be completed with the next steps depending on the method and area of insulation.
Insulation Slab FAQs
Are insulation slabs / batts better than rolls?
Batts are pieces of blanket insulation that are pre-cut to manageable sizes (15-24 inches wide by 48 or 93 inches long), while rolls are strips of insulation similar to batts in width but much longer (25, 32 or 48 feet, for example). Both types of insulation have the same quality as the other however depending on your project one product may be easier to handle and install than the other. For example, when insulating a loft, the rafters can be extremely long. Instead of installing lots of slabs, a roll is a much easier option and more time-effective option. If you’re insulating a pitched roof or upright wall, a rigid insulation slab is much easier to work with compared to a loft roll. This is because the insulation won’t sag or compress, so you’ll get the maximum performance in energy efficiency.
What are insulation slabs?
Insulation slab is also known as insulation batt. It's manufactured from glass wool and mineral wool, but instead of being formed into rolls (which is the most frequent type of insulation), it's made into rigid slabs and for easier use in upright positions and an easier method of application in areas such as walls and roofs.
Can you cut insulation slabs?
Insulation slabs can be cut by using a sharp knife. Simply ensure the slab is pulled tight and simply cut through the wool slab.
What thicknesses do insulation slabs come in?
Insulation slabs are available in thicknesses of 25mm, 30mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, 65mm, 70mm, 75mm, 85mm, 90mm, 100mm, 120mm, 125mm, 140mm, 150mm, and 180mm depending on the chosen brand and product.
How many insulation batts do I need?
To determine the amount of insulation needed, start by measuring the height and length of each of your room walls. Multiply the wall's length by the wall's height and don't forget to write down the spacing and depth of the studs so you can then determine what type of insulation and thickness will be purchased.
Is it easy to install insulation slabs / batts?
Simply, yes. Insulation slabs are lightweight and more rigid than rolls. They are also delivered in tightly compressed packages making moving the product around and between different floor levels within the property is easier. As the slabs have a slight hold and flex in their form, fitting them into areas such as pitched roofs and walls is made simple as they are easy to fit between rafters. As the slabs are a good size to handle, it also means it is more manageable if working alone.
