I want to use my loft for storage, how can I do that if it is insulated to the depth recommended?
You or your installer can also lay two layers of insulation loft boards called Space Board along with an 18mm chipboard deck to provide storage space. click here to view. These insulation boards are made from Polyfoam extruded polystyrene designed to be placed on top of the ceiling joists instead of the 170mm mineral wool insulation. You will need a loft hatch which is minimum 600mm x 600mm. Having 100mm of insulation installed between the joists, two layers of Space Board and a chipboard deck laid on top gives the same thermal performance as installing 270mm of mineral wool insulation.
