How to Insulate Your Conservatory
This guide will display how to effectively insulate your conservatory for all year round use.
Conservatory Roofs are renowned for being extremely hot in summer, and freezing cold in the winter. Our Multifoil Insulation Kits are proven to create an ambient temperature all year round.
There are two types of Multifoils which can be purchased within the Kits – SuperQuilt Insulation & EcoQuilt Expert Insulation. Both are proven to save on cost, space & Installation time vs traditional products such as Kingspan.

Installing ThermaFrost (Glass Only)
If the Conservatory Roof has a glass roof, we recommend the use of ThermaFrost Window Tint. The material will create a white opaque finish which will add privacy and also reduce sun glare. To view full installation details of this product, please visit the data sheet on the product page.
Install Timber Battens
Install 25mm deep battens onto the UPVC beams. These are screwed onto the beams using the 50mm FastFix Conservatory Screws found in the Conservatory Kit.
Staple Multifoil Insulation
Next, staple either SuperQuilt or EcoQuilt Expert directly onto the battens at 300mm intervals. You will receive a Heavy Duty Staple Gun & 5,000 14mm staples in the Conservatory Insulation Kit.
Taping & Sealing Multifoil
Ensure all Insulation joints are overlapped by a minimum of 50mm. Ensure overlaps are fully taped and sealed using Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape. This will ensure the product acts as a high performing vapour control layer, eliminating the risk of condensation. SuperQuilt & EcoQuilt can be easily cut using Multifoil Scissors or a Cutting Knife - Both available in our Multifoil Fitting Kit.
Installing Counter Battens
Once the Insulation products are fully taped, sealed and overlapped, proceed with installing 25mm deep counter battens. Ensure battens are also installed around the perimeter for your internal boarding.
Install Internal Boarding
To finish, either Plasterboard or Plastic Cladding can be installed as the internal layer. The plasterboard is then screwed into the battens in the usual manner. We would recommend using a 9mm Plasterboard as this will keep the weight down.
Enjoy your new Conservatory!
Enjoy your revived Conservatory all year round! The conservatory will keep cooler in the summer, warmer in the winter, and also significantly reduce rain noise.
