Conserving energy with multi-foil insulation

Manchester based manufacturer Insullite is making extensive use of high performance multi-foil insulation from YBS in the construction of its replacement roofs.

Insullite has developed a lightweight, timber framed replacement roof structure featuring the use of the YBS SuperQuilt multi-layer insulation, which is suitable for use across the entire building envelope, and being a BBA accredited product, it enables the conservatory roof to achieve Building Regulation approval.

Neil Birchall, managing director, said: “The Insullite solid tiled conservatory roof has been intelligently designed to solve all of the common problems that conservatory owners face: we do this by using a multi-layered foil insulation system. Our solution features a SuperQuilt 19 layer multi-foil insulation, which has an excellent thermal value as it deflects the extreme hot and cold temperatures away from the occupied space. We also employ a sound deadening insulation, which unlike rigid materials, completely silences the weather.

“This intelligent use of insulation technologies means that the Insullite tiled conservatory roof achieves a U-value of 0-18 W/m2 K – meaning the insulation system is one of the best on the market.”
