• Suitable for heights up to 3m (9'10") • Minimum loft opening width 0.38m (1'3") • Minimum storage space 1.20m (3'11") • Minimum clearance arc 0.71m (2'4") So depends a bit if your hatch is right up against the eaves, but 50 cm entry width and depth should be OK, unless the arc or storage (for the closed ladder) dimensions bang up against the roof or eaves. If you have to cut any ceiling joists, you need a Builder to do the job properly and support the cut section with new timber. Only attempt it if you really are competent at DIY.

Kennedy1985

Make sure you have plenty of clearance in your loft if you are getting a 2 section. Often a 3 section will be better suited as there’s less chance it will hit the joists. A wooden access kit is much stronger and better quality but it really depends on your budget and how often you are likely to be using it.

Bertz99

If you want full size (as sunlux have in that link) you need to work out your dimensions and if you can extend your hatch. Last one I fitted length wise was no issue with only one noggin needing to be moved. Width was 5mmover so strengthened and trimmed to fit. Other than that you are looking bespoke and paying considerably more.

Stevie_mower

Cheers for the reply but not a fan of the metal and wood mini ones. After a proper full sized wooden one which can fit into a small hatch if possible please

watsbacker

I recently did this myself. Not too difficult, just a bit awkward. You don't need the Loftzone kit, you buy separately for much less. I bought the Loftlegs from Wickes (cheapest I could find at £10 for 12) and loft board from the same place. You just need to screw the loft legs onto the joists and then screw the loft boards on to the legs. Insulation can still be placed between the joists and is not squashed by the boards due to the raised height from the Loft Legs. There's a few good videos online showing how to do it. For a loft that size, you can do it in a day or so yourself

princeprecious

I got a quote of £900 for a small loft of 15.5m2 only.

Deijin_Jin

Same I have a 36m2 loft, insulated (new build) to get loftzone installed with a cheap aluminium ladder sets me back £1900. I spoke to the guy and said I can get 36m2 loftzone plus boards and ladders for just under 1k, so 900 would be just the labour which sounds insane and they said it would take 5 hours.

HeathLinacre

They screw into the batons that the hatch is made out of.

Are these hard to fit and what does the ladder actually attach onto? Thanks

It's a lot. Like 150kg. BUT..... Be careful. These are nothing like the ones that have handles either side. They're quite flimsy and unless you get it 100% straight, it makes some very odd noises.

seymour71

Sorry, yes you're right. Wouldn't make much difference, it's just that the joists tend to be 100mm anyway.

bmouthboyo

I thought it was 100mm between joists then 170 on top?

seymour71

The two stars relate to the thermal efficiency of the product. This is loft roll 44, there is also a better, more expensive loft roll 40 product. The thermal value (R value) is 0.044 w/mk. To hit current minimum regulations for a new loft, you need a total of 270mm of this. 170mm between the joists, and then 100mm across the top.

What are the two out of five stars on its packaging? Any details on R or U values? Thanks

markymark34

Yes. This works absolutely fine if you are just wanting some loft storage. I bought 2 packs of the stilts in your links and loft boards for less than half the price of the links at the top of this thread. Very easy to install as well if you have a cordless screwdriver.

greencat

I have the same system in my attic. It works well and allowed for much deeper layer of insulation. The missus has stored a ton of stuff up there on it, and so far we've had no problems in 7 years.

idroidmaniac

New builds are different as like you say its built to tight specs to only support a roof. The old houses that have acrington brick would probably support an extra house ontop.

DJM1978

Fitted the 'LoftZone StoreFloor Kit for New Build Houses (7m2)' that I purchased from Homebase in my loft last year. It has made a large storage area that is easy to walk on. The head room is obviously reduced but not so much that I cannot easily walk on the boards, it is actually easier to walk across than before due to the cross beams being easier to climb over. Also my insulation is not squashed down. It does seem expensive when you look at what you get but I am glad I fitted it.

EMM386

I really like the look of this but it's quite a bit more expensive than using loft stilts from B&Q or Wickes. Also while looking at it just now. In the example pictures above the weight of 16 loft boards is carried by 20 Loftzone stilts costing 93.49. Using the recommendation of 6 stilts per board for B&Q or WIckes gives the weight carried by 45 stilts yet costing only 60.00. Also you'd have 3 spare stilts and in the case of Wickes slightly higher (30cm) stilts for more insulation or condensation gap. I have a new built finished in the last year and my insulation would most certainly take up the majority of the 27 - 27.9 of B&Q or LoftZone stilts.

I've updated my spreadsheet comparing the entry loft insulation at the 3 diy sheds. Notes 1. Despite all being made by Knauf they all are seemingly different types, earthwool, ekoroll and space loft roll. I've no idea of the differences and suspect this is something to keep the diy sheds happy and its really the same product. Please correct me if I'm wrong. 2. There are some variances in the length of the rolls, especially the 200mm from Homebase which is quite short so its best to show the cost as per metre squared, which Wickes does by default. 3. All 3 have offers at the moment and in Homebase and B&Q you have to buy multiples whereas Wickes is per roll.

14 quid - knauf said

Vawallpa

I can't find any information that suggests that it's any different to the base layer, literally just the depth. I think the base layer is made to go between the joists which are normally about 4", and then you have the 170mm or 200mm to go at a right angle to that laid above the base layer. I laid 3 layers of 100mm while it was on offer as I didn't think they'd do offers on the other depths. 100mm - 8.3m² £12 - £1.44 per m² at 10cm depth (previously on offer) 170mm - 6.47m² £14 - £1.27 per m² at 10cm depth 200mm - 5.61m² £15 - £1.33 per m² at 10cm depth

Cheers for the info, the house is 30yrs so I may get away with it. I'll do some further research doesnt sound too bad though

custardy

get up and measure the gap in your joists. in modern houses it will likely be the right gap for these ladders. Our house is 20 years old. ladder fitted without cutting joists. Hammered out the old hatch. Marked out the gap required. Cut with a plasterboard knife. very easy.I marked the corners and drilled cutting holes. cut the long length from the loft side so the joists could guide me. then did the short sides from underneath. Should be a 2 man job to fit the hatch but I was impatient and did it a wooden support to hold it in place. Im still boarding out the loft so havent tidied round the hatch yet but will just use some skirting wood type material to make it neat. Wouldnt rate it as a big job if you are relativly handy. Just daunting cutting an big hole in the ceiling.

davep393

So, how hard are these to fit? I've looked before but it just looks like a nightmare to cut a bigger hole in the ceiling and make it look tidy. Im fairly good with DIY(just finishing a full bathroom refit) but cutting through beams does worry me!

Blimey. That's small. Perhaps buy one roll and try it - I reckon it'll be pretty tough though.....

ben.harris

Just measured the opening - 30cm X 45cm. I can fit through it, but it's a squeeze and it's very near the lowest point of the roofline, so not much height above the hatch either. :-(

skeeter909

Wear a mask, the fibres are deadly in your lungs. One of our workmen during house renovations had to be hospitalized as he was coughing up blood, root cause found by the builders to not have used masks and eye protection while on another site laying insulation.Yes you will be hot & sweaty and look like a plonker while working with it and get a hard time from your kids but at least you will be around long enough to see them grow up

wilf1234

Most rolls will compress sufficiently to enable them to be dragged through a hatch (big enough for a human to get through!) Definitely don't unroll it and pull through (whilst possible it'll be a horrific job as it'll expand massively as you unpack it and you'll have a flexible sheet effectively 1.2x6.0m!)

ben.harris

Might sound like a strange question, but does anyone know (roughly) what the diameter of the roll is? We've got a really small loft hatch and I reckon it'll be a close call if I can squeeze a roll through it. I guess, worst case, I could unroll it beforehand and drag it through, but that sounds like it'll just make even more mess!

Xiaoda

Is the wooden one quieter than the metal ones? My metal one creaks a lot when climbing up or down.

Wolfylee

I have a kind of long eye-bolt that you screw into a small discrete hole which, when you pull on it, unlocks the latch and it falls down. It's only as long as you need it to be - mine is less than seven inches and lives in a drawer. The wooden folding ladders are attached to the back of the hatch so when they fall down they are there to grab easily - another huge benefit is they don't take any usuable loft space - they only take up the footprint of the hatch where you couldn't store anything anyway. They can also be walked up in bare feet without absolutely creasing your feet like the aluminium ones do. :)

Xiaoda

But how to you bring the door down, from a closed position, without a pole? I can't reach the ceiling.

Wolfylee

You must reach up and unfold them, on mine anyway. I suppose it depends how tall you are and how high you're ceiling - there's no catch to release them though.

Xiaoda

Why don't you need a pole for these wooden ones?

I have previoulsy used the wickes ones and and i would not say it is cut enough to fall apart when rolling, it actually has marking for 3 different sizes on the pack which i think you use to cut while still rolled up in pack. I might tackle the roof area of bungalow today and use the b&q and see how that goes, before moving on to the dormer area which will be more of a pain. Will report back on my experience. Thanks

welshblob

Unfortunately my knee isn't going to let me do it on this visit, plus I have to improve the job the handyman did on installing their spotlights first and even before that fix a hole in the roofing felt which is letting water in if the wind is blowing in the wrong direction. I was also going to choose the b&q one myself and saw those reviews. All of this type of insulation has pre cut perforations to make it easier to cut it so it fits between the joists. Whether the b&q one is worst in this respect to the others or if it's just a case of people bothering to feedback on the b&q site I just don't know. I'd probably still opt for the b&q one and just be a bit extra careful with it, taking into account the feedback.

steve_b21

Thanks for this. I was planning to carry out some work on my bungalow over the next few days and was deciding which of insulations types would be the best value for money - out of the three you mentioned. Which one did you end up going for? I was thinking on B&Q however a lot of the reviews report back that their roles are pre cut so they fall completly apart when laying.

Hi, Thanks Neotrix for posting this as I'm about to insulate my mum's extension over xmas if my knee holds out. However as Homebase has been closing stores over the past year then a round trip to the nearest one doesn't really make sense. So I've created a comparison with B&Q and Wickes to see what the differences are. Notes 1. Despite all being made by Knauf they all are seemingly different types, earthwool, ekoroll and space loft roll. I've no idea of the differences and suspect this is something to keep the diy sheds happy and its really the same product. Please correct me if I'm wrong. 2. There are some variances in the length of the rolls, especially the 200mm from Homebase which is quite short so its best to show the cost as per metre squared, which Wickes does by default. 3. All 3 have offers at the moment and I'm not sure when the B&Q and Wickes ones expire. Also Homebase and B&Q you have to buy multiples whereas Wickes is per roll. Summary - Price per m2 100mm Homebase £1.54 Knauf Earthwool Loft Roll - 100mm B&Q £1.99 Knauf Eko Roll Loft insulation roll, (L)7.28m (W)1.14m (T)100mm Wickes £2.17 Knauf 100mm Space Bottom Layer Loft Roll Insulation - 8.3m2 170mm B&Q £2.55 Knauf Eko Roll Loft insulation roll, (L)5.68m (W)1.14m (T)170mm Wickes £2.93 Knauf 170mm Standard Top Up Loft Roll Insulation - 6.47m2 200mm B&Q £3.00 Knauf Eko Roll Loft insulation roll, (L)4.83m (W)1.14m (T)200mm Homebase £3.29 Knauf Earthwool Loft Roll - 200mm Wickes £3.56 Knauf 200mm Super Top Up Loft Roll Insulation - 5.61m2 Detailed Calcs -> Google Docs

I got so much of this stuff from my energy supplier for free that I was selling it, did the whole loft and still had about 5 rolls left
