Additional Information

Thermal Performance

Loft provides excellent thermal performance due to a low thermal conductivity and a complete and consistent installation. Loft provides a choice of R-Values based on the installed thickness and installed weight per square metre. The stated thermal resistance (R-Value) is provided by installing the required density at the thickness (per the manufacturer’s instructions). Failure to install less than the required density and thickness will result in lower insulation R-Values.

Loft is designed to be installed at a target density of 8-9kg/m3. Refer to the thermal performance table for more details. Loft will achieve R-Values that with the use of NZS 4214 are able to meet the minimum requirements of NZS 4218 and the Energy Efficiency requirements for ceilings.

Acoustic performance
Improves sound transmission class (STC) by between 4 and 10 points.
Energy conservation
Reduces energy usage and utility bills for heating and air conditioning.
