“We used Low-E Insulation to insulate outdoor water tanks. We used to lose a lot of water through evaporation in the summer months. It is made a huge difference. We have now insulated of hot water tanks indoors, and we have noticed our energy bills have gone down too. I’d definitely recommend Low-E Insulation.”

How to Make Radiator Reflectors

Stop heating your walls and start heating your home. Installing Low-E behind your radiators will make
your rooms warmer and reduce your energy bills. Low-E reflects 97% radiant heat and is Class 1 fire
rated so it’s the perfect material for making your own radiator reflectors. Simply follow the steps
below to improve the efficiency of your radiators and improve the comfort in your home.
Please take the usual precautions when using scissors or a blade. When marking the insulation, be sure not to use a sharp
pen that could damage the insulation. Check all measurements and markings before making any cuts. If unsure, cut your
mats slightly large. You can always cut a little extra afterwards, but you can’t add extra back on.

Step 1

Measure Up

Measure the height and length of your radiator.

Step 2

Mark Out

Roll out the insulation and mark your measurements on the foil with a marker. Using a straight edge, draw a line between your markings..

Step 3

First Cut

Carefully cut the insulation along your lines using scissors or a utility knife.

Step 4

Cut for the Brackets

Measure the distance from one side of the radiator to the first bracket and mark this on your insulation. Then, measure the distance between the brackets and mark the second bracket on the same side. Using your straight edge, mark a line the height of the insulation along the points of the brackets. Measure the distance from the top of your radiator to the top of the brackets and mark this distance at the top end of each of these lines.

Cut along these lines from the bottom of the insulation, stopping at the marks that indicate the top of the brackets. This will allow you to slide the insulation behind the radiator, sitting over the brackets.

Step 5

Apply  Adhesive Tape

Cut a strip of double-sided tape the same length as your piece of insulation. Carefully remove the backing paper (leave the front face paper on for now) and stick it to the wall running flush with the top of your radiator. Then, carefully slide your insulation behind the radiator fitting it over the brackets.

Step 6

Remove the Paper

Remove the front facing paper from the tape and secure the insulation in place.


Job done! Simply repeat these steps for all the radiators you wish to insulate.
