Rafter, Foilboard & Floor Insulation

Rafter, Foilboard & Floor Insulation

Floor insulation or insulating a floor means adding an insulating material beneath the floorboards, thereby reducing heat escaping through the floor into the ground. Insulation acts to prevent draughts from coming through the floorboards. Rafter insulation refers to the pitched part of a roof, which can be insulated with slabs or rolls. Foilboard can be used almost anywhere from walls, floors, or ceilings within any residential and commercial project, it is even widely used to insulate sheds and factories.

Being aware of the need for effective rafter, foil board, floor insulation, and underfloor insulation we have worked hard to provide an extensive range to suit all projects. We work closely with the leading insulation manufacturers, such as Xtratherm, Jablite, and Knauf Insulation to ensure that our products are designed to be fitted easily with our range of insulation fixings and drylining screws. They are also made to last over time.

A popular product in this category is Xtratherm Foilboard XT/PR which is a foil board insulation item. Using this product on sloped roofs, whether warm, hybrid or vented provides efficient U-values with minimal intrusion into valuable living space. Warm roof construction is a very effective way of insulating complex roofs. Insulating above and between the roof timbers ensures that the structure is kept at, or near the internal environmental conditions. This reduces thermal stress and condensation risk.

With so many options for insulation, it’s important to choose the correct one for your project. Please read our guide to insulation. Don't forget to view all our insulation products, offering a range of high-performance insulation and insulation board products from leading industry manufacturers and suppliers including Xtratherm and Knauf Insulation at very competitive prices.
