Loft Flooring Leg

Raises your loft boards by 175mm, avoiding insulation compression, saving you energy and money.

 

What is a Loft Leg?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Loft Leg is a unique design protected solution to avoid insulation compression when using your loft for storage.

 

Government guidelines recommend that we insulate with 270mm of quilt insulation to achieve a U value of 0.16 (www.energysavingtrust.org.uk). 

 

Thermal studies have shown that compressing your insulation can reduce its thermal properties by more than 50%.

 

A 175mm Loft Leg fixed on top of a 100mm truss or ceiling joist provides a light weight, cost effective solution. 

 

Developed by a team of engineers and designers the Loft Leg is strong, lightweight and easy to install.

 

The Loft Leg is manufactured in the UK from recycled polypropylene, to ISO9001 standards and has been mechanically tested by independent experts.

 

Don't just take our word for it – see what building.co.uk has to say about the issue.
