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.

“The installation was quick clean and efficient. The results are amazing. Our conservatory is comfortable even in these record-breaking summer temperatures.”

Mrs Staff, Southampton, UK

“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

“What can I say? The insulate was quick clean and easy to install. Our original loft conversion was done over 20 years ago, and it has gone from being the hottest room in the summer, and the coldest room in the winter, to being our master bedroom and the most comfortable room in the house. […]

G Stone, Stroud, UK

“I’ve been specifying the use of Low-E Insulation for the last 5 years. It’s a fantastic product. It achieves better values in smaller spaces than other materials. Best of all, Building Control love it and so do our contractors.”

A Brown, Portsmouth, UK

“We’re part of the Insta Group and have been installing loft insulation in Manchester for over 10 years. I’ve never come across a product as good as Low-E. It quick clean and easy to use. Our customers are delighted with it. I’ve been so impressed with it that I’ve re-insulated my own loft and stripped […]

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.
