Cheshire loft boarding we specialise in installing the only BBA approved loft boarding system in the UK - The LoftZone StoreFloor.
The LoftZone raised loft floor is a lightweight, low cost, quick to have installed and provides a very strong platform for storing items and walking on, while protecting the 270mm loft insulation and allowing it to save energy and cut fuel bills as intended.
How can I use my insulated loft for storage?
StoreFloor protects the insulation underneath it, and provides a strong floor for safe access or storage.
Why it's important to insulate your loft
Most people know it is important to insulate your loft, because if you don't, 25% of your heating bills go out through your roof. The Government recommends that everyone insulates to a depth of 270mm if they use rolls of mineral wool insulation (this is the fluffy stuff you see in most DIY stores, and is the most cost-effective solution). It's cheap and relatively simple to do this, it will pay for itself rapidly, and it will help you to feel warmer in the winter and cooler at night in the summer.
I want to insulate my loft, but what can I do with all my stuff up there?
You're not alone - the vast majority of UK households use their lofts for storage. But the extra insulation required to cut fuel bills and save energy makes it very difficult to use the loft space for storage. Many people put boxes on top of the insulation or, even worse, put boards down on top of the joists. This is a major no-no as, in both cases, the insulation gets compressed. Squashed insulation doesn't perform very well! - the mineral wool loft insulation works because of the air trapped inside the insulation and if you compress it, the air gets squeezed out, making it much less effective.
Safety and safe access to your loft
How can I make my insulated loft safe to walk on? Another common problem with a fully-insulated loft is how to then safely access items stored or installed up there. It is not just your possessions you'll want to access: water tanks, boilers, solar inverters all require maintenance from time to time. But, once you have 270mm of insulation, you can no longer see the loft trusses and joists which means it is hard to safely walk or crawl in the loft: one wrong step and you could put your foot through the ceiling!
What's the solution?
The cheapest and simplest solution to the very common problem of storing items in a fully-insulated loft is to install a raised floor above the insulation. The LoftZone StoreFloor is a lightweight, low cost, easy-to-install and very strong platform for storing items and walking on, while protecting the 270mm loft insulation and allowing it to save energy and cut fuel bills as intended.
