Foil insulation is another name for multifoil insulation, a type of insulation composed of several layers of foils and foam. These can be used in many applications including roof insulation, floor insulation and wall insulation. Depending on your application the foil insulation will either have a breathable membrane for the external side or a vapour barrier for the internal side. Foil insulation is a thin insulation product that is great for lofts and tight spaces, highly flexible, and has an extremely long lifespan of over fifty years. It is one of the thinnest insulation materials on the market, allowing for a higher thermal performance with less space used.
You can find a wide range of multi-layer foil insulation available here for installation in roof spaces, lofts, attics, walls, and underfloors. Among the products we offer at UKFR are foil quilt insulation, multilayer foil insulation wraps, and aluminium foil tape from trusted manufacturers.

The use of foil insulation, also known as reflective insulation, is beneficial for certain roofing applications and climates. Listed below are some reasons why you may wish to consider using foil insulation on your property, including energy savings and reducing draughts:
Reflective Heat Barrier: An advantage of foil insulation is that it is designed to reflect radiant heat, which can be especially valuable in hot and sunny climates. Reflecting the sun's rays away from your roof can assist in keeping your interior space cooler and reduce the need for air conditioning. As a result, energy can be saved and comfort can be increased during hot weather.
Enhanced Thermal Performance: Foil insulation acts as a thermal barrier as well as a heat reflector. Your home or building will be more energy-efficient and comfortable throughout the year by reducing heat loss during the winter months.
Moisture Barrier: Vapour barrier properties of foil insulation can help prevent moisture from entering your property which can lead to a build up of condensation. When there is high humidity or condensation, this can be especially important.
Lightweight and Easy Installation: Adding or retrofitting insulation materials to an existing property is easy with foil insulation, which is lightweight and easy to install. In most cases, no special tools or extensive modifications to your building are required to install it.
Durability: Mildew, mould, and pests cannot penetrate foil insulation. A long lifespan and high level of effectiveness can be attributed to the fact that it does not degrade over time.
Space Savings: Insulation made from foil is typically thin, allowing you to utilise as much interior space as possible. Space-constrained applications may benefit from this feature.
Environmental Considerations: In some cases, foil insulation is more environmentally friendly than other insulation types due to the fact that it is often made from recycled materials, which can be reclaimed at the end of its useful life.
A roofing professional or insulation specialist should assess your specific climate, roofing structure, and insulation needs before choosing foil insulation for your roof. Foil insulation may be an appropriate choice for your particular situation if you consult with them.

You should choose foil insulation as it prevents radiant heat loss all year round, making it ideal for saving money on heating year-on-year. In summer, foil insulation can also prevent heat from entering your home by reflecting sunlight, avoiding overly heated rooms. In winter, heat can be reflected back inside a room, keeping it warmer.
No. In fact, foil insulation helps prevent condensation, which is done by blocking warm air from entering a space. Condensation happens when hot and cold air meet, which means particles can no longer hold onto water molecules.
Foil insulation can last up to 50 years, ensuring regular replacements are not necessary.
Materials such as these are designed to be in direct contact with plasterboard, slowing down heat transfer through walls or ceilings. It is best to leave an air gap between the foil insulation and plasterboard as this improves the thermal performance.
It has already been reported that many people have benefited financially and practically by using Multifoil Insulation products as a substitute for PIR. This addresses both the ever-increasing costs of PIR as well as the extremely tedious process associated with its installation.
