Insulation is placed between the joists and supported on netting (e.g. polypropylene) or timber battens.
An important consideration is to ensure that the insulation product used fills all gaps between joists to prevent air movement which can lead to unwanted heat loss.
Why Mineral Wool?
Friction fitting mineral wool between timber joists closes joints, reducing the potential for gaps and unwanted loss of thermal performance.
The flexible nature of mineral wool accommodates movements in floor ensuring all joints remain closed.
