Earthwool Loft Rolls are non-combustible, Glass Mineral Wool rolls. The Knauf Insulation Loft Roll 44 Combi Cut is manufactured using our revolutionary ECOSE® Technology, and designed specifically for use in cold lofts where pitched roofs are insulated at ceiling level. Loft Roll 44 is free from CFC’s, HCFCs and it’s classification as Zero ODP and Zero GWP means it has a low impact on the environment.
Combi-cut products have partially cut perforations. This helps to provide flexibility when used between joists at either 400mm or 600mm centres or used unsplit as a full-width roll. Ready-cut products are fully cut and are designed to be used between joists at 600mm centres.
Loft roll 44 is flexible, resilient and provides excellent thermal performance. It is non-combustible and comes as a lightweight quilt for ease of installation. It provides thermal, fire and acoustic performance. Loft Roll 44 is odourless, non-hygroscopic and rot proof meaning vermin will not be sustained and the product will not have any effects on fungi, bacteria or mould. It also gives negligible resistant to water vapour and provides a vapour resistivity of 7.00MNs/g.m. Knauf Insulation Loft Roll 44 Combi Cut ensures your commercial space or home is always protected
Ready cut rolls for use between joists at 600mm centres are available. They are 1140mm wide and can produce 2 rolls (570m wide) or 3 rolls (380mm wide). It is also available as partially cut rolls for use with:
- Timber joists at 400mm centres
- Timber joists at 600mm centres

Knauf Loft Roll 44 Installation Guide
Before you begin Installing Knauf Loft Roll 44
Check for any heavy-duty electrical wiring before you lay the roll. Any heavy-duty electrical wiring should always be kept above the insulation to avoid the possibility of overheating. Lower amp lighting cable should be ok to leave as is.
Check for any down lighters or hot flues and make sure that the insulation is kept clear by at least 75mm to avoid the risk of a fire.
Gloves can be handy when laying and fitting loft roll but not essential.
Make sure the area is completely clear. Have 2 crawling boards thick enough to take your weight to stop you from slipping on the joists or falling through the ceiling.
Start at the furthest point of the loft hatch and lay 100mm thick insulation between the joists.
Gently push the roll in at the edges to get a snug fit but don’t push down too much – remember you want as much air as possible to be trapped in the insulation.
If you have any old insulation in place you can decide to either start fresh or to simply lay the new insulation on the top of the old insulation.
Start laying the roll at the eaves making sure you leave a slight gap for the air to circulate (25mm ventilation gap). Then roll out towards the centre of the loft. If you have difficulty pressing the material down in the corners of the room, a broom stick can be a handy tall to help to press the loft roll down in those harder to reach areas.
When the roll runs out, simply start a new role and put the 2 ends together.
When you need to cut the roll, mark the length where you need to cut. Grip the roll between 2 boards (one above and one below to hold the role in place) and cut with a Stanley knife.
Once you have filled between the joists you now need to lay another layer across the top of the joists to avoid heat loss.
Remember you are looking for a combined thickness of over 270mm so for the top layer a minimum of 200mm thickness is recommended. The thicker the better to provide the best insulation to the house/ commercial space, maximise savings and keep energy bills low.
Once you have rolled the entire top layer the job is now complete.
