Insulation

Insulation is your golden-ticket solution to lowering energy consumption and heating bills. Insulation has a huge impact on a building's heat retention, fire resistance, and sound protection and is the building block of a cosy, energy-efficient home. Insulation comes in many different forms, such as boards (multi-application), slabs (walls) and rolls (loft insulation). Depending on the application, sometimes only one of these will be appropriate, at other times you might use all three.

Types of Insulation

There are lots of different types of insulation products available on the market. Their most common purpose is to reduce heat loss and the transfer of sound. Organisations like the Energy Saving Trust advise people to better insulate their homes due to the many benefits, such as using less energy and reducing carbon footprint. 

Insulation can be used in internal walls, external walls (cavity walls), pitched roofs, floor systems, ceilings and loft spaces. 

We sell a huge range that can meet your insulation requirements, whether it's for home insulation or insulating a commercial building.


Insulation Boards

Insulation boards are multi-purpose boards that can be used for a variety of applications.

This type of insulation is a rigid insulation board specifically designed to reduce undesirable heat loss, thus bringing energy bills down. When installing, take extra care not to squash the boards as this will reduce their insulation value.

Browse through our range of insulation boards from popular brands such as Celotex, EcoTherm, and Kingspan. We sell both PIR insulation and cavity wall insulation boards. PIR insulation is typically applied to applications, whereas cavity wall insulation boards are designed to slot in a wall cavity.


Insulation Slabs

Not only does slab insulation offer great thermal and acoustic performance, but it also offers excellent fire resistance, meaning it will not ignite or contribute to fire spread. Rockwool is the UK's leading manufacturer of insulation slabs. At Materials Market, we sell Rockwool’s most popular insulation slab to date; the RWA45 Acoustic Insulation Slab. These high-quality acoustic and thermal insulation resin bonded slabs are champions at soundproofing and feature phenomenal fire resistance properties - as proven by their outstanding Euroclass A1 non-combustible rating. RWA45 is also water repellent - promising maximum protection for the lifetime of your build. 

In short, insulation slabs promise energy efficiency whilst helping to protect buildings against noise transmission, heat loss and the spread of fire.


Insulation Rolls

Loft roll insulation and acoustic roll insulation are the two most widely used insulation rolls on the market. Insulation rolls, also known as glass mineral wool insulation, are typically used as loft insulation in roof space, although they are suitable for a variety of building applications, including floors, walls, lofts and roofs.

Glass mineral wool insulation rolls are lightweight, easy to handle, and non-combustible, achieving the highest possible level of fire performance with an A1 rating on the Euroclass scale. Be aware that adequate ventilation is needed to ensure a flow of fresh air in the space where you install.

At Materials Market, you can take your pick from some of the biggest and most reputable manufacturers of Insulation Rolls in the UK, such as Knauf and Superglass. We sell popular loft insulation rolls like Isover Spacesaver 44 loft insulation and Knauf Earthwool Loft Roll 44.


Thermal insulation

Thermal insulation reduces a building's carbon footprint and improves its overall thermal envelope. Industry-leading brands like EcoTherm, Kingspan and Celotex all have excellent thermal insulation properties. We sell lots of different thermal insulation material that is fire-resistant, water-resistant, rigid, and long-lasting. They come in different forms – from insulation boards, loft roll insulation, insulation slabs and insulation foil – to ensure you have the best thermal solution for insulating your project.


Acoustic Insulation

Sound insulation reduces the transmission of unwanted noise between internal walls and floors. Our most popular acoustic insulation is Rockwool RAW45 Slabs and Knauf Earthwool Rolls. Browse through our range of acoustic floor insulation and acoustic wall insulation products today and find a slab/roll that will help you achieve that calm household you've always wanted.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Areas Of The Home Should Be Insulated?

The key areas of your home that need insulation are the roof, loft and exterior walls. Since heat rises, your roof and loft are the biggest heat-loss culprits. And as a third of all heat lost from an uninsulated house leaks out through the walls, wall insulation is also a biggy when it comes to preventing heat loss. 

The aim of the game is to create a thermal envelope around your home, essentially like wrapping a big scarf around the walls and popping a woolly hat on the roof to keep the warmth in. 

What Are My Options When Choosing Insulation?

The insulation market is chocka with choices; with fibreglass, rock mineral wool, foam, and so many more products to choose from, your options are plenty.

There are a few things to factor in before jumping on an insulation purchase: 


Choosing the right insulation product to suit your project is vitally important, we have insulation material for commercial and domestic projects. Please note you should always get professional insulation industry advice before installing insulation.
