Barn Conversion Insulation

Restrictions on head height and maintaining the building character are extremely import design objectives when completing a Barn Conversion. Low-E can be installed in fully exposed and partially exposed rafter build ups.

Increases Thermal Performance

Stops Draughts

Resistant to Insects, Birds and Bats

Occupies Less Space

Won't Absorb Moisture

Low-E Insulation can be installed externally above the rafters, or internally below the rafters. It is resistant to insects, fungus and the nesting of bats and birds. Low-E will reduce draughts, uncontrolled air-movement and provide moisture protection all in one. It’s thin profile makes it one of the most efficient insulation materials you can use in barn conversion projects.

“Low-E was a critical part of our insulation build up. Without it, we would not have been able to meet our brief. The contractor was very happy with it because it was quick, clean and easy to install”

– Ms J Long

Barn Conversions – Partially Exposed Rafter

Restrictions on roof heights can often mean it is not possible to maintain fully exposed rafters internally. In this example, Low-E® EZY has been installed over the top of the rafters and draped into the rafter cavity. A secondary insulation is then installed over the top of the rafters and the finished ceiling is then fitted between the rafters with the use of small timber battens.
