Discover our multi foil & foil insulation. We stock a variety of multifoil insulation from top brands. An aluminum, polypropylene, and thermo-foam foil is a thin insulation blanket. The system prevents condensation and keeps your home warm. A vapor control layer (internally) keeps the heat in while a breathable membrane (externally) prevents moisture buildup. Whenever there’s a need for high insulation values but space is limited, this is the perfect product.

What is foil or multifoil insulation?

Fiberglass or mineral wool insulation is often used in lofts for insulation. One type of insulation, however, is sometimes overlooked and is known as foil insulation. Due to its highly reflective property, foil is an excellent insulating material. A thin film of foil is used as insulation in this type of technology, which might not perform well. The development of new materials has resulted in thinner, more flexible, and better insulating materials. You can now install thermally dynamic multi-foil insulation to your existing conservatory roof, without sacrificing much headroom.

How does multi foil insulation work?

In combination, multiple layers of insulation effectively deal with all forms of energy transfer, such as convection, radiation, and conduction. These layers reflect heat back into the building in winter and provide a barrier against solar overheating in summer.

What is interstitial condensation?

In construction, interstitial condensation occurs between layers, i.e., 'inside' the roof, wall, or floor. During assembly, interstitial condensation can cause deterioration or even failure of the components, potentially reducing their useful life.
Save Energy
Multi-foil insulation has a direct effect on thermal comfort because it is able to reduce heat loss. Your indoor space will be able to be kept cozy and warm with less power or energy. Additionally, your cooling systems will remain cool in the summer months since less heat will be transferred.

Keeping warm
As you might not know, 30% of heat is lost through external doors and windows, 13% through floors, 25% through walls, and 13% through roofs. There is a lot of space in that room for heat to escape, so this is a concern for many homeowners. Thin multifoil insulation, on the other hand, will drastically reduce heat loss. As a result, your indoor space will be warm and cozy during the winter. During the summer, foil roof insulation acts as a radiant barrier to reflect heat away from your home, providing you with a cooler living space.
High Performance

Insulation foil is a high-performance insulation material. In comparison with traditional insulation materials, foil insulation has a much slimmer profile and performs extremely well. Insulation like this is usually 3-5 times thinner than traditional insulation, which is usually extremely thick. Multifoil insulation produces SF60, one of the best multi-foil insulations in the UK and around the world. This makes it a popular choice for homeowners and contractors alike.

What is U-Value for Foil Insulation

A material's U-value measures how easily it can conduct heat. Low U-values mean better thermal performance.
You have two options when installing foil insulation. Installation can be performed by a DIYer (DIY Project) or a pro. When using the right product, foil insulation should not be difficult to install when you possess adequate knowledge and experience.

To ensure an easy DIY project, you should choose insulation you are comfortable installing. Using this method, you will not have to worry about the protective equipment that you would normally use when installing other types of insulation.

Which way do you face foil insulation?

It's important to think about whether you want your space to be warmer or cooler when deciding whether to place the foil side of the insulation board shiny side in or out. When the foil faces inside, it will reflect radiant heat to make the space

Installing multi foil insulation

Make cutting easy with the correct tools
For easier cutting, we recommend a sharp pair of decorating shears, a utility knife, or an electric rotary cutter for thicker products. Sharp scissors and knives will make your life much easier and ensure you will cut cleanly through the product as opposed to trying to hack through the layers.
Staple into place.
During installation, staple the foil into place using the appropriate size staples as a holding measure to assist you. A heavy-duty stapler will do the job just fine and can be found at any local DIY store. Place staples approximately 50-100mm apart along the edge of the foil.
Battening
If you are battening, the most important thing is to choose the correct batten size, this is to ensure you leave the right size air gap for your insulation to work properly.
It is important to make sure that the battens and foil are compressed fully before driving the screw through.
Furthermore, we recommend using non-self-tapping screws in order to prevent the insulation from getting caught around them.
Tape
When you are finished installing, tape any joint, tears, or edges using foil tape. In creating an airtight finish, you help to give your insulation the greatest possible performance while eliminating draughts.
The next step is to check for air spaces, which will allow you to install battens. The next step is to install a breathable membrane over the batten.
In addition, you must add a vapor barrier behind the plasterboards as a control layer. Insulating over the rafters will help reduce interstitial condensation.
