Attic insulation with STEICOtop
Many buildings have been designed with accessible, but not habitable attic spaces. Many households utilise this space for additional storage, by laying boards over the insulated joists. With the introduction of better insulation / energy efficiency requirements, deeper loft insulation is now required. Boarding the attic and squashing the insulation, will result in reduced effectiveness of the insulation and thus not gain the energy efficiencies required. STEICOtop not only offers the consumer the desired storage space, but maintains the required insulation properties for energy effectiveness.
Wood burns! There is no denying this fact and it is partially valid for STEICO wood fibre insulating materials. However STEICO insulating materials exhibit some very positive behaviour in the event of fire. If you were a tennis ball, which insulation would you choose?
The latest release of our STEICOkonstruct design software incorporates an analytical tool, which allows real time analysis of structural components and how a whole floor unit behaves when occupants walk on it. This video explains how it works.
