Use Your Conservatory All Year Round!
We all know too well that Conservatories can be too hot in the Summer and too cold in the Winter. This does not need to be the case. Our Conservatory Insulation Kit will retain heat in the Winter and reflect the warm away in the Summer. The Insulation Kit, therefore provides you with a comfortable living space for use all year round!
EcoQuilt Expert is a 6-layer Multifoil that compresses down to approximately 6mm between 2 x 25mm battens. This is equivalent to around 50mm of Rigid Board Insulation such as a Kingspan.
YBS SuperQuilt is a 19-layer Multifoil Insulation, with true aluminium outer layers. This is the highest performing fully certificated Multifoil on the market. It compresses to around 10mm and equates to around 80mm of Rigid Board Insulation, such as Celotex.

Whats Included in our Conservatory Insulation Kit?
How to Insulate Your Conservatory
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.

Do you need to use the ThermaFrost Tint?
No, you don’t have to use it however it will help protect the insulation from sun damage because it helps prevent 60% of UV rays from getting through. It also gives a white opaque look to the roof of your conservatory rather than seeing the silver foil through the glass. ThermaFrost is not suitable for plastic or polycarbonate roofs.
Do you need to batten before installing the insulation?
The insulation works best with a 25mm gap between the glass of the conservatory and the insulation. The insulation will expand into the space, so you get full benefits from the insulation.
Will the Insulation make the Conservatory warmer during the summer?
No, it will do the opposite and will reflect the heat away from the conservatory, so it stays cooler instead of getting warmer during the summer.
Is this insulation lightweight enough?
Depending on which product is used, the weight is between 400g to 800g per m², making it very lightweight and will not cause any problems to the structure of the conservatory roof. If you are concerned about weight on the roof, you may consider a lightweight plastic cladding for the internal finish.
What battens do you recommend?
We recommend treated 25mm x 25mm timber battens either side of our insulation.
Will it prevent rain noise?
Insulating with our multifoil followed by internal boarding will create a much quieter room.
