Loft Leg 175-300mm - Per Square Metre (sqm) – SQMSQM

Raised Loft Boarding – New Build Approved System – Does Not Void NHBC Warranty

This method is required in new build houses where the insulation is so high above the existing joists and there are no load bearing internal walls, the cross- bracing method simply wont suffice. This method is used to elevate the floor using stilts, that ensure the existing insulation level is maintained and your U-Value is not compromised. It also provides protection against stress on the ceilings beneath and allows a small gap between the insulation and flooring for air to circulate, similar to Loftzone.

LoftLeg have stated that compressing your insulation can reduce its thermal properties by more than 50%

Suited for medium-thick loft insulation such as the 175mm Earthwool that we install.

Raised Loft Boarding – New Build Approved System – Does Not Void NHBC Warranty

Award-winning LoftZone StoreFloor creates a lightweight but incredibly strong system of raised beams that supports a safe deck above your insulation. It’s the easiest way to create safe access to equipment in your loft, or simply to generate storage space while keeping your loft insulated to regulations.

StoreFloor leaves an air gap underneath the boards, to prevent condensation. (Note that some other raised loft products aren’t tall enough for this essential feature).

Suited for thicker loft insulation such as 270mm Earthwool that we install.

New Joist for heavy loads - Per Square Metre (sqm) – SQMSQM

If the existing floor joists are not strong enough to take normal loading requirements, or you intend on using the loft to store extra heavy loads, we can install new loft joists adjacent to the current ones to provide additional load capacity.
