Insulating the loft is an effective and easy way to reduce your heating costs and your CO2 emissions. The lambda value (λ) is important for thermal performance. The lower the value, the better the insulating performance of a material. With a lambda value of only 0.036 W/(m*K), STEICOflex has one of the best thermal performance values of any natural insulation materials.
The first layer of STEICOflex is laid between the ceiling joists and for maximum thermal performance, a second layer of STEICOflex is laid to cover the joists. This type of renovation requires no specialist PPE and is an ideal solution for both professional installers and DIY projects.
