Thinking of using this as underfloor insultation.

OP you might want to state £11.99 in your thread but explain they work out at £2.99. Someone is bound to complain.

Great stuff this.Took advantage of the recent N Power deal and boy were those rolls huge and cutting them produced so much fibre. These space blankets are fantastic - easy to manoeuvre into tight spots and simple to move around for emergency access. Recommend them.

+1, these are SO much nicer to work with than standard 'unbagged' glass. Guess I'm off to Focus tomorrow to get some underfloor insulation. Thanks OP (was just about to post this deal).

Underfloor insulation on ground floor above floating floor? Not a good idea with this.

Great stuff for the loft.

Do you just lay it under the floor boards? Don't you have to lay it to a specific height or do it in two layers? I got 30 rolls @ £1 when they were on offer and have still have some left over, just thinking I could use them instead of giving them away...

You'll probably get this at b&q for 11.99 less 10% using their price promise

A little off topic: I want to board my loft, so I need 'thin' loft insulation. Any ideas?

This stuff would be fine then, just lay in the gaps assuming they are this width which they probably will be.

I've had this very stuff under my ground floor front room and it's great.

I had under 3ft of a gap, but managed to still lay it fine. I used the outer casing of the blanket to pin it between the joists. Works a treat.

Nightmare, did 24 rolls last week, if you have to saw them into more manageable "slices" do it outside and pop them into bin bags to get up into the attic, otherwise you're going to be like us and eating fibres for ever.

gonna get the usual queue of builders taking advantage of this and leaving us none, elderly lady 2 doors from me got charged a fortune for loft insulation and the stuff they used was from B&Q when it was on offer

Voted hot, off to get some cheers

Dont go knocking builders trying to earn a living (i'm not one by the way) The stores opening hours are the same for everyone.
I'm surprised to hear about the elderly lady 2 doors up, she probably could of got it done for nothing.

Banned

If you want to use it for underfloor insulation, you can pin this type of insulation as noted above. If you want to use rockwall (the npower deal), then staple strong string on the underside of the joists and lay this on top, then lay the floorboards. Don't be tempted to totally fill the gap between the floorboards and the ground. You need an airgap for ventilation. Also be careful not to block any vents in the walls. Obviously only do this for the ground floor.

Don't forget that a lot of people are eligible for free loft and cavity wall insulation. warmfront.co.uk/do-…htm

Well done - not. How is the water vapour going to get air to it? Not ideal to use the silver stuff - just speak to space blanket. Buy the bigger rolls without the blanket cover - really not that hard to use.

Again - great deal for the loft. Personally I would go to B&Q and get it for TWENTY % less. Price match 10% + 10% October Privilage card.

One and half years on and these idiots still havn't started the work - probably a good idea as they would wreck the cavity!

Thanks, excellent deal. Except I'll have to move all the junk in the loft now. And then put it all back, cos I never throw stuff away. If anyone needs to know, you can get 16 rolls in the back of a Saab 9000 hatchback, easy. :-)

Can anyone help.

We have a carport and half of the bedroom is above it, whilst the other half is above the garage. The floor for the part above the garage is mach warmer than part above the carport so thought about filing it with some sort of insulation.

Do you think this would do or is there something else that coould be used as there is no ventilation in the roof of the carport and thought ventilation was needed.

Any help would be appreciated as people I have spoken to just seem keen to do the job and get the money for it as opposed to considering the implications.

The other problem is we have lilghts in the car port so could it be a fire hazard if we then fill it with insulation.

Hope someone can help.

Just got some from the Leamington Spa store, there was an additional offer in the store where if you filled in your address details you got an extra £4 off the purchase!

Most people use two layers ( 1 x 100mm ) + (1 x 170mm ) = 270mm, but it depends if you have some already down. A friend had a 50mm layer already down so just put down another 170mm on top. Don't be tempted to squash it down though as it won't work as well, and you may need to raise the level of your joists.

NB Make sure if you have a tank up in the loft you put a thermo-jacket on it as there will be less heat escaping up there. You don't want your tank to freeze up. Same goes about lagging your pipes.

Hope this helps.

I have a loft that is about a third partially boarded down the centre where you can stand and unboarded where the roof slope is to low to be able to stand at the edges. At the unboarded edges there is insulation, but only about 100-150mm.

I didn't want to unboard the loft, but it's only used for storage and only about a third of the boarded area. I only go up there about two or three times a year and wondered if this might be ok to put across the boarded area and then just move it as access is needed (as it is lined I am guessing it won't check the fibres everywhere when moving)?

Looks like there are two thicknesses and also two sizes

focusdiy.co.uk/bin…ket

Well yes, this bit from OP is a bit of a giveaway "Space Blanket 150mm and Space Blanket 200mm " :-)

Looks like these come in two thichnesses and two lengths
focusdiy.co.uk/bin…ket

Also the width of a roll is the same as the space between joists (37cm) - so unlike the normal insulation rolls that you normally cut to cover 3 joist spaces, these only cover one. So just be aware you are likely to need a fair few to cover the average loft space and the cost is going to be a fair amount more than the £1 roll NPower stuff. However, it is ALOT easier to lay!

B&Q are selling this at £5.98 per roll on Buy One Get One Free

I found out when I rang to get a price match but they are 1p cheaper and have plenty of stock unlike Focus in my area (Sheffield).
