Pitched Roof Insulation

You can reduce, the thickness for your roof, secondary insulation and install time by using either Low-E Insulation on any pitched roof. The large compact rolls are very easy lightweight and mean you will have less material to transport and to handle on site.

Quick and Easy to Install

Occupies Less Space

No Layer, No Dragging on Screws

Reduces Condensation Risk

Stops Draughts

Quick, clean and very easy to install you can use Low-E Insulation EZY Seal (vapour barrier) on to the internal side, or Low-E Insulation PERF (breathable) on the exterior side of any type of pitched roof. Low-E reflects heat, stops draughts and uncontrolled air movement, and will create a better performing insulation system than traditional materials on their own.

“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. […]

Wendy R, Stockport, UK

“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 […]

Above & Below Rafter – Partial Fill

150mm rafters will leave more than enough room to install any type of secondary insulation In this example, Low-E PERF and Low-E EZ are counter battened above and below both layers.

Above Rafter – Partial Fill

In this example, Low-E® PERF is installed over the rafters with a secondary insulation between the rafters before being counter battened and a breather membrane installed.

Below Rafter – Partial Fill

Rigid Foam is installed between the rafters and Low-E® EZ is installed below the rafters, before being counter battened and the finished ceiling is installed.

Above Rafter – Full Fill

Low-E® PERF can be installed with a full fill of Mineral Fibre insulation between the rafters, before being counter battened and a breather membrane is installed.

Below Rafter – Full Fill

In this example, Low-E® EZ is installed on the underside of the rafter, with a full fill of the secondary insulation between the rafters, before counter battening and the finished ceiling is installed.

SIPS Panel – Upgrade

Low-E® EZ and Low-E® PERF can be installed to replace the vaopur barrier and breather membranes that are usually installed on a SIPS roof. This increases thermal performance and reduce the buildings life-cycle running costswithout adding any labour steps to the build process .

Dormer Inside

Low-E® EZ can be installed inside a dormer cheek to increase thermal performance and provides air tightness and moisture protection.

Dormer Outside

Low-E® PERF can be installed on the exterior side of a dormer cheek to increase thermal performance and reduce draughts.

Dwarf Walls – Partial Fill

When installing Rigid Foam between the studs in a dwarf wall, Low-E® EZ can be installed on the internal side of the walls to increase thermal performance and provide air tightness and moisture protection.

Dwarf Walls – Full Fill

If you are using a Mineral Fibre to insulate between studs in a dwarf wall it can be hard to maintain airspaces on both sides of Low-E® EZ. In this example, the dwarf walls have a full fill of Mineral Fibre with Low-E® EZ installed on the internal side of the walls. A counter batten is then used to maintain an airspace and service void.
