Loft Insulation Roll
What are Loft Rolls?
Fibreglass, commonly known as glass mineral wool, can be used to make loft rolls. This material is common as it has outstanding insulative properties. Fibreglass insulation has microscopic air spaces and glass fibres that resemble hair. A finished product with exceptional insulative qualities is created by mixing this with a bonding agent and cutting it into rolls. Rolling out and setting up the loft insulation rolls itself is simple.
The thermal conductivity of a typical loft rols is 0.44 w/mk. For example, in Knauf Loft Roll 44, you will notice “44” at the end of the products title. This value specifically relates to the product's heat conductivity. Rolls of loft insulation are used to raise a building's thermal rating and as a result, lower the amount of energy required to heat a house. Overall, consumers may lower their energy expenses and lessen the negative environmental effects of consuming more energy.

Installing Loft Roll Insulation
Loft rolls are particularly known for their effectiveness and ease of installation. Although installing loft rolls is relatively straightforward, you should always take caution when working with them. Rolls of loft insulation are typically formed of mineral fibres, which can irritate the skin or eyes when in contact with them. It is recommended that you wear appropriate PPE, such as gloves and eye protection. Face masks are recommended since cutting loft rolls may produce dust. The good thing is that loft roll is less aggravating than ever thanks to new production techniques, but we nevertheless encourage you to use caution. Knauf claims that their loft roll is pleasant to the touch and boasts minimal dust levels.
Use of crawl boards when in a loft to navigate safely and comfortably. Don't forget to isolate heat-generating components separate from the insulation. Recessed lighting fixtures are also covered in this. To further reduce fire hazards, non-combustible downlight protection covers should be placed.
Once all health and safety hazards have been removed, you may start installing your loft roll. On our website, choose from a variety of different products and thicknesses. Loft Roll insulation is adaptable and simple to cut. It may be laid up in two layers for efficient loft insulation at either 600mm or 400mm intervals from the joists. The second layer needs to be positioned at right angles to the joists. To get the thickness you want, stack your loft roll accordingly. See the video below for visual instructions on how to fit loft roll.
Loft Insulation Roll FAQs
Below are some frequently asked questions that we get about loft rolls.
How do you cut Loft Roll?
Loft rolls can be cut in a variety of different ways. Rolls of loft insulation may be quickly and simply cut using a utility or carving knife. In addition, shears can be used to cut loft rolls. Before making any cuts, we advise you to record your measurements on the roll, some products such as Knauf Loft Roll 44, come combi cut, enhancing the ease of use. Keep in mind that cutting loft rolls might result in an increase of dust particles. Use the appropriate PPE to protect yourself against this as they may also irritate your skin and eyes.
How are Loft Insulation Rolls made?
Fibreglass and mineral wool are typically used to make loft rolls. Glass wool is another name for fibreglass, which has superb insulating qualities. Fine glass and sand fibres are heated to create fibreglass wool, the glass and sand are then spun through incredibly thin mesh after melting. To give the combination of a wool-like texture, binding material is added before cooling the mixture. To give it strength and stability, the material mixture is then heated and calendared yet again. Pockets of air are trapped between the glass thanks to this innovative manufacturing method. The product's ability to attain great thermal performance is made possible by the air pockets. Furthermore, it is worth noting that each manufacturer may differ in their process and materials, however the above text refers to a typical process.
How many Loft Rolls are required for my loft?
Your loft space and the area it needs to cover will determine how much loft roll is needed. By calculating the width and length of the space in metres, you may determine the size of your loft. You can calculate the m2 area coverage by multiplying these numbers.
To make it simple for you to determine how many packs you need, the total coverage in m2 for each product on our website is listed on the product page. We do suggest ordering 10% extra as no consumer wants to be just shy of the required amount when installing Loft Rolls. It will always be better to be a little bit over, rather than short. It is always wise to allocate for potential wastage.
