When looking at increasing thermal efficiency of older properties, there is always a compromise between occupying internal space and achieving better U-values. Low-E® Insulation is ideal for all refurbishment projects from IWI (Internal Wall Insulation), to loft conversions and the refurbishment conservatories. Installed with little disruption, Low-E® Insulation is lightweight, quick, clean and very easy to install. Giving you maximum savings by reducing energy bills and carbon emissions while occupying as little as 20mm of internal space.
Low-E® Insulation is the perfect material when internally insulating on solid walls, also known as IWI. With various application solutions, Low-E® Insulation is ideal for the refurbishment of older properties when looking at increasing thermal efficiency while occupying minimal internal floor space.
- Increases Thermal Performance
- Stops Draughts
- No Fibres, no itching
- Occupies less space
- Won’t absorb moisture
"The Low-E was quick clean and easy to install. It occupied less than 30mm of space, so the room feels the same size. The room used to be too cold to sit in, now it’s easy to heat."
– Wendy R, Stockport
Solid Wall – Space Saving
Solid walls can be constructed of stone, brick or block. They can be difficult to upgrade and often a compromise is made between occupied floor space and efficiency achieved. Installing Low-E® EZY Seal with a plasterboard or insulated plasterboard can be the most efficient way of insulating a solid wall.
This example uses a single batten and occupies a minimum amount of space.
Solid Wall – Double Batten
In this example the wall is battened, the Low-E installed and then a counter batten. Doubling battening occupies additional space but also increases the thermal performance.
Solid Wall – Timber Frame
In this example, timber battens are fixed to the wall with rigid or fibre insulation installed between them. Low-E® EZY Seal is fixed to battens and then a counter battened installed to create a service void. The counter batten occupies additional space but also increases the thermal performance. You can remove this batten to save space if necessary.
Solid Wall – Hollow Block
In this example, timber battens are fixed to the hollow block wall with rigid or fibre insulation installed between them. Low-E® EZY Seal is fixed to battens and then a counter battened installed to create a service void. This reduces draughts and provides maximum performance in the least space possible.
