What’s in the Kit Garage Insulation Kit?

- EcoQuilt Insulation 1.5m x 10m
- Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape (1 Roll per 30m²)
- Heavy Duty Staple Gun & 5,000 Staples
- Cutting Knife
Due to its low emissivity outer layers, our EcoPro works by reflecting away unwanted heat in the summer months. It also effectively retains radiant heat and energy in the winter months. It is made up of 6 layers and is just 15mm thick and compresses to 7mm when installed. The multifoil can be easily stapled onto timber rafters or stud work. 1 Layer of EcoQuilt equates to approx 50mm Rigid PIR Insulation such as Kingspan or Celotex!
If you would like to insulate the floor – you would receive;
- EcoTec FloorFoam Insulation 1.2m x 25m
- Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape 75mm x 50m (1 Roll per 30m²)
- Thermaseal Double Sided Tape 33mm x 50m (1 Roll per 30m²)
EcoTec FloorFoam is a 4mm dense foam membrane. It can be fixed down on the concrete with Thermaseal Double Sided. This material prevents cold bridging as well as dampness. You may also opt to use Interlocking foam tiles / other flooring that can be installed over FloorFoam.

How To Convert your Garage Into a Workshop
How to Insulate a Concrete Floor
Rolling out FloorFoam
Start by rolling out FloorFoam Insulation either vertically or horizontally on the concrete floor. EcoTec FloorFoam can then easily be cut by using Multifoil Scissors or a Cutting Knife - Both available in our Fitting Kit.
Fixing Down FloorFoam
FloorFoam is fixed onto concrete floors by using Thermaseal Double Sided Tape, or Non-Solvent Glue. Ensure FloorFoam Insulation is fully taped and sealed on butt joints on the floor. Also tape FloorFoam around the perimeter.(Thermaseal Foil Tape is provided free of charge in kit). Taping and sealing ensures no draught or moisture can rise up through the floor.
Install Preferred Final Flooring
Once your concrete floor has been covered with FloorFoam, next you can install your desired flooring. Wood & laminate flooring can be installed directly on top of FloorFoam. We recommend to use a carpet underlay prior to a carpet being installed. If a vinyl or lino is being used, we would advise the use of a plywood over the top of the FloorFoam.

|Water Vapour Resistance||600MNs/g|
Do I need to insulate the floor?
Performance wise it is recommended to insulate the floor using our EcoTec FloorFoam which is also available in this kit. If you’re using your garage for cars, or heavy machinery and it gets a lot of wear and tear you should use some plywood over the top to prevent damage to the insulation. There is also the option to not insulate the floors if you don’t feel like it’s needed.
Do you need to board over the floor and walls?
This is something that’s completely up to you if you’re wanting to insulate your garage so it can be used as an extra room, and you don’t want to see the silver insulation you can. Boarding over the insulation can help to protect it from any damage. For the floors, dense rubber matting is a great choice because it’s made for heavy machinery and can take a lot of weight. However, you do not need to board over the insulation.
Do you need to use battens, or can you install the insulation directly to the wall?
The insulation works by expanding into the open space behind the battens and trapping warm air inside. You will still gain benefit from applying it straight to the wall, but the performance won’t be as good as installing it with battens with a 25mm gap. You would expect to lose 20% performance from removing an air cavity.
Do you need to tape and seal the insulation?
Yes, we would always recommend taping and sealing the insulation this will stop any draughts from entering the garage and prevent warm air from escaping. When our products are taped, they will work as Vapour Control Layers, reducing condensation.
Is it suitable for all year-round use?
Insulating the roof and wall would be suitable for all year-round use. Having a heat source in the garage would allow for comfortable use in the winter.
Can I cut the insulation?
Our products can easily be cut with a cutting knife or a large pair of scissors. EcoQuilt Expert is a multi-layered insulation, however it has kimbles which keeps all layers together when cutting.
