Ever wanted a natural insulation in the loft space but also want to be able to use the loft for storage? Well, now you can.
Many houses have been designed with accessible, but not used, attic spaces. Many are used for storage but this normally means that the area where the goods are held is not insulated. Steico Top is the answer to wanting attic insulation but still being able to utilise the space for storage. Loft insulation is critical to retaining warmth in the home, to reduce heating bills and Steico Top is the answer for anyone that wants a product that is suitable for "Green Home" living or simple wants a quick and easy answer to loft storage problems.
Some people think that they can squash their types of insulation down with ply and stack on top. After all, it is the same product, just squashed out so it should be the same job, right? Wrong, this will not work. Most loft insulations work on air being trapped within the fibres to act as the insulator. If you squash attic insulations, then you push out the air that is required to keep the heat in. Steico Top solves this problem by being a wood based natural insulator with air pockets between the wood strands that can not be compressed by walking on them.
Steico top is a stable eco friendly rigid thermal board that is suitable for light footfall, when laid on top of loft boards. 80mm in depth and laid one of top of another with a staggered joint, combined with fully infilling between the joists to a minimum of 100mm, this system allows for the recommended government depth of insulation of a minimum of 250mm. When used with 80mm thermal insulation Steico Flex at the edges (which is easier to cut and mitre around roof trusses), the whole loft can be filled with a breathable system of insulation that can be used for storage.
Steico Top boards are light weight (5.5kg) and due to their size of 1200 x 400mm, can be easily fit through most loft hatches.
These woodfibre boards are made from timber harvested from sustainable forests.
