Suspended Floor (Over Joist) Insulation Solutions

INSULATING A SUSPENDED FLOOR FROM THE INTERNAL ROOM SIDE.

Insulating a suspended floor from the internal side is a common method of insulation, particularly for retrofit, refurbishment, conversion, and new build projects.

This method of installing suspended floor insulation allows you to significantly reduce the height of the floor by recessing the insulation over the joists, maximising the internal space. Using our highly reflective, thin profile insulation offers great benefits, whilst achieving U-Values which will ensure you comply with Building Regulations and have a space which is comfortable for its occupants.

The recommended insulation for this method of construction is shown below.

SuperQuilt over joists

Our over joist insulation solution is great for projects where traditional insulation such as PIR or mineral wool is already in situ between the joists, the use of traditional insulation has already been specified, or there is no insulation at all.

Installing a layer of SuperQuilt recessed over the top of the joists increases the overall thermal efficiency of the floor and makes use of the space between the joists.

Increase the overall thermal performance of the floor by simply increasing the depth of the joist cavity above the SuperQuilt.

Alternatively avoid the use of traditional insulation all together by using a single or multiple layer of SuperQuilt, which can be used to achieve your desired U-Value, for more information speak to our technical support team on 01909 726 025
For projects where a lower U-value is required, why not try our Foiltec range.
