Quick and Easy to Install
Occupies Less Space
No Layer, No Dragging on Screws
Reduces Condensation Risk
Low-E Insulation EZY Seal works as a complete air infiltration and vapour barrier, while also boosting thermal performance and reducing thermal bridging. Our Low-E Insulation PERF is breathable and perfect for use on the external side of building. The perfect combination for any timber frame building.
“We had a serious problem with damp and mould. Not only did Low-E eliminate the problem but the room is easily to heat too. It was far more noticeable than the cavity wall insulation that caused the problem with the mould”
G Taylor, Bolton, UK
“The Low-E was quick clean and easy to install. It occupied about 1” of space, so the room feels the same size as it was. It used to be too cold to sit in, now it’s easy to heat. I’m over the moon.”
Wendy R, Stockport, UK
“We are managing to meet U-value requirements in smaller studs. Customers love that we can save some floor space and our fitters love that is quick and clean to install.”
Gerry D, Sunset Building, Luton, 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
Timber Frame – Internal and External (Partial Fill)
With Low-E® PERF installed on the exterior side of the frame as a breather membrane and Low-E® EZY installed internally as a vapour control layer and airtight membrane, the amount of secondary insulation required is greatly reduced. This system creates the most efficient timber frame possible and reduces life-cycle running costs of any building.

Timber Frame – Internal (Full Fill)
Low-E® can also be installed on a timber frame with a full fill of insulation. A full fill of insulation is usual if a Blown or Natural Fibre insulation (sheeps wool etc) is used in the timber frame. In this example, Low-E® EZ is used to increase thermal performance, provide air tightness and moisture protection.

Timber Frame – Passive House
To meet extremely low U-values or ‘Passive House’ standards, specially designed timber frames incorporating Low-E® Insulation can be constructed to reduce thermal bridging and create the most efficient buildings. These can be constructed on or off-site making them extremely versatile.
In this example a rigid foam is installed between the studs with a second layer (unbridged) installed on the exterior side of the timber frame, faced with Low-E® PERF. Low-E® EZ is then installed on the interior face of the frame, before counter battening. Another option is to use an insulated plasterboard. This creates a second unbridged layer of insulation. This will also reduce the amount of insulation required between the studs.
