Pitched Roof Insulation
“An innovative solution for modern buildings”
It is unrealistic to expect a single product to address all of the problems posed by modern buildings. However, by using Low-E® Insulation as part of a combination system you can meet high R-value requirements, address vapor control and stop drafting and air leakage into and out of your building. Low-E® Insulation can be used alongside traditional insulations to increase thermal performance and reduce life-cycle running costs, by tackling issues which have been previously unaddressed by bulkier insulation products.
You’ve heard of Low E glass? Make Low- E® Insulation part of your next project and see why it’s fast becoming the world’s favourite brand of Reflective Insulation. You can reduce the thickness for your roof, secondary insulation and install time by using either our Low-E ‘EZY’ Seal (vapour barrier), to the internal side, or our Low-E PERF (breathable) to the exterior side.
- Quicker and easier to Install
- Occupies less space
- No layer, no dragging on screws
- Reduces condensation risk
- Stops draughts
"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."
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 .
Low-E® EZ can be installed inside a dormer cheek to increase thermal performance and provides air tightness and moisture protection.
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.
