Types of Underfloor Insulation:
Retrofitting or repairing foil insulation in residential buildings is now banned.
Bulk Underfloor Insulation Design
Polyester, wool, polystyrene, fibreglass and a range of other materials are used to make bulk underfloor insulation. They are efficient and easy to install. Our professionals staple Polyester insulation blanket carefully with extra care as stapling underfloor where there are live wires can be dangerous. High-density Polyester insulation sections are friction-fitted between the floor joists.
Fibreglass underfloor insulation has low density and is not preferred for underfloor as they get affected by the damp condition.
Foil Underfloor Insulation Design
Foil used to be the most common material used for underfloor insulation in New Zealand. Retrofitting foil insulation and repairing foil insulation in residential buildings is now banned under section 26 of the Building Act 2004.
Insulation installer could face various safety risks during foil underfloor insulation. When stapler or foil come in contact with live electric wires, then installer could get an electric shock which would be very risky. Any metal-based substance conducts electricity easily, and the foil is also metal-based material. Due to limited space and low-light levels under the floor, the risk of installing insulation would intensify.
