Multi Layer Foil Insulation
With its reduced thickness and excellent insulating properties, multi layer foil insulation can be a godsend when you need good insulation but physical space is limited. The thickness of modern, multi foil insulation is typically in the range of 30 to 40mm. This makes the material ideal for loft conversions and the renovation of period properties.
The foil is manufactured from layers of foam or wadding, sandwiched between multiple sheets of heat reflecting foil. The foam traps insulating air, while the foil reflects infra-red radiation. This makes the multi-foil an excellent barrier to heat transfer by radiation, conduction or convection. Generally, the efficiency of any particular multi layer foil insulator can be judged by the number of layers there are in its construction. This type of insulation works 24/7, 365 days a year to reduce your heating costs in the winter and keep your home or office cooler in summer.
While multi layer foil insulation is normally used in conjunction with a breather membrane, products like TLX Gold Breathable Multi-Foil & Roofing Membrane are available which combine both functions. TLX Gold and other multi-foil insulation is particularly easy to install. This, along with the energy savings and other benefits, makes multi foil insulation a very popular product on the DIY market.
