At last! A DIY Solution For New Build Loft Storage

Loft Leg Ltd., the market leaders in loft storage solutions, is very excited to announce their new arrival, the Loft Leg XL.

The Loft Leg XL will be formally launched at the National Homebuilding and Renovation Show at the Birmingham National Exhibition Centre from March the 23rd to 26th.

Loft Leg XL 300mm

The 300mm Loft Leg XL

The Loft Leg XL has been developed specifically for new build homes with very deep insulation over and above the standard government recommendations.

Government guidelines currently recommend that homes are insulated with 270mm of quit insulation to achieve a U value of 0.16 W/m²K. However, new build homes can often be installed with up to 400mm of insulation to meet much stricter insulation targets. Thermal studies have shown that compressing insulation can reduce its thermal properties by more than 50%, therefore a 300mm Loft Leg XL fixed on top of a truss or ceiling joist provides a cost effective DIY solution.

The Loft Leg XL in action

The Loft Leg XL has been rigorously tested by independent experts and can withstand compressive weights of over 1000Kg. It is perfectly safe to walk on and store up to 50kg per square metre. However, the product does not change the load bearing characteristics of the roof structure.

Loft Leg XL’s can be purchased from as little as £16.99 for a box of 12 (providing up to 2.5sqm of raised storage).

Gareth Storey, Director of Loft Leg Ltd. added “Having received lots of calls from customers with new build homes looking for a DIY solution it was clear there was a real market need. We have spent 2 years developing and testing the new larger Loft Leg to ensure it performed as well as our very successful standard Loft Leg. The Loft Leg XL allows us to deliver a genuine DIY solution for new build homes that are being super insulated with far more than the government recommended depths. We are really excited to add the Loft Leg XL to our successful range of loft storage solutions.”

Come and see the team and the Loft Leg XL at the Birmingham NEC from the 23rd to the 26th March 2017.
