Thermal Insulation

At Building Materials, our top quality thermal insulation products ensure that heat loss is reduced and less money is spent on gas and electric.

The most common areas for thermal insulation are lofts, cavity walls, external walls, and floors.

What Are the Best Materials For Thermal Insulation?

Blanket Insulation

Blanket insulation is the most common type, and what we tend to sell most of here at Building Materials. It can be bought in batts or rolls and is usually made from fibreglass or mineral wool.

The main advantages of blanket insulation are that you can install it yourself and that it's relatively speaking it's quite inexpensive. Typically, it can be applied to floors, walls and ceilings, and is fitted between studs, joists and beams.

Foam Board Insulation

Foam board insulation is made of polystyrene, polyisocyanurate or polyurethane and can be used to insulate almost any part of your domestic or commercial building project. However, it is most effective in exterior or interior wall sheathing. Foam board insulation must be covered with 1/2-inch gypsum board or other building-code approved material for fire safety and exterior applications needs to be covered with weatherproof facing.
