Flat Roof Insulation

Whether it is a cold or a warm deck roof, Low-E can reduce thickness, thermal bridging and condensation risk. Low-E Insulation can be installed above or below the joists quickly and easily to create a warmer more efficient roofing system.

Quick and Easy to Install

Occupies Less Space

No Layer, No Dragging on Screws

Reduces Condensation Risk

Stops Draughts

A flat roof is usually designed with ventilated air spaces below the timber deck. These ventilated air spaces are necessary for the structure, but often create draughts within the building. Installing Low-E Insulation below the roof can reduce the amount of insulation required between the joists, where space may be limited, and can stops draughts coming into the building itself.

“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. […]

“We use both the vapour and the breathable versions of Low-E Insulation. We’ve tried using other foil insulation products, but they can be time-consuming and difficult to install. Low-E is so easy to work with, we just wouldn’t use anything else.”

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 […]

Flat Roof – Partial Fill

Flat roofs are designed with ventilated air spaces below the timber deck. These ventilated air spaces are necessary for the structure, but often create draughts within the building. Installing Low-E® EZY below the roof can reduce the amount of insulation required between the joists and stops draughting within the building itself. This example shows Low-E® EZY installed with a rigid foam between the joists before the finished ceiling is installed.

Flat Roof – Full Fill

When installing a Mineral Fibre between joists, it is not very easy to maintain air spaces on both sides of Low-E®. In this example, Low-E® has been installed with a full fill of Mineral Fibre between the joists and Low-E® EZY installed below the joists before being counter battened, and the finished ceiling is installed.
