Multifoil Insulation Rolls

(2 Items)

Multifoil insulation is manufactured using several thin layers of reflective aluminium foil, thermo-foam and polypropylene. Polypropylene (a thermo-plastic) is scattered between the foil, which is then encased in layers of highly insulating thermo-foam. 

The main goal of multifoil loft insulation is to reduce heat transfer. Multi foil insulation rolls act as a lightweight, highly effective form of thermal management by controlling conduction, convection, and radiation. 

The several layers of foil between the rolls act as a dense barrier against condensation. During the winter, they reflect heat towards the property, and when temperatures rise, they can regulate how much radiation the building receives for a cooler environment. 

The thermo-foam and polypropylene wadding work with the foil to enhance its thermal resistance. 

Multifoil insulation is accessible to everyone, whether you’re an experienced property developer or a DIY beginner. It can be easily cut, shaped, and installed with staples, especially in small spaces or irregular areas.

Multifoil Insulation FAQs

What is multifoil insulation?

Multifoil insulation is a versatile and efficient type of insulation composed of multiple layers of reflective foil materials. These layers often include films, foils, and sometimes foam or wadding. The primary purpose of multifoil insulation is to create a barrier that reflects radiant heat, preventing it from entering or escaping a building. This insulation type is known for its flexibility, ease of installation, and effectiveness in both summer and winter.

Is it worth putting multifoil insulation in the loft?

The decision to use multifoil insulation rolls in the loft depends on several factors. Multifoil loft insulation is effective in reducing radiant heat transfer and can be a valuable addition to enhance thermal performance. It works well in conjunction with traditional insulation materials. 

Consider the specific climate, budget, and the desired insulation outcome. Multifoil loft insulation is known for its flexibility, ease of installation, and suitability for various applications. It's particularly useful in situations where space is limited. 

For a comprehensive approach to your loft insulation, combining multifoil insulation with other materials may offer optimal energy efficiency benefits.

Does multifoil insulation need an air gap?

Yes, for optimal performance, multifoil insulation generally requires an air gap. The air gap is a crucial component of the insulation system, working in tandem with the reflective properties of the multifoil insulation rolls. 

This gap enhances the insulation's ability to reflect radiant heat effectively. It's essential to adhere to our guidelines regarding the recommended size and maintenance of the air gap during installation. 

A properly sized and maintained air gap ensures that the multifoil insulation functions as intended, providing an efficient barrier against radiant heat transfer and contributing to improved thermal insulation in the desired space.

Where is multifoil insulation most commonly used?

Multifoil insulation is versatile and finds common applications in various areas of construction. Multifoil loft insulation is frequently used in lofts and roofs, providing an effective barrier against radiant heat and contributing to improved energy efficiency. 

Additionally, it is utilised in cavity walls and timber frame constructions, helping to enhance thermal performance. Multifoil insulation can be applied in floors, specifically in suspended floors, to reduce heat transfer and improve insulation. Placed under rafters, it helps control heat gain or loss in pitched roofs.

Due to the flexibility and ease of installation, multifoil insulation is often used in conservatories to regulate temperature. Understanding its versatility, multifoil insulation proves valuable in a range of construction projects where efficient thermal insulation is a priority.
