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 above the existing insulation by 175/300mm. This method ensures the existing thermal 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. A 175mm/300mm Loft Leg fixed on top of a 100mm truss or ceiling joist provides a lightweight, cost effective solution.
Developed by a team of engineers and designers the Loft Leg is strong; lightweight and manufactured in the UK from recycled polypropylene, to ISO9001 standards and has been mechanically tested by independent experts.
