Buy Multi Foil - Multi Layer Heat Reflective Thermal Barrier Insulation

Multi Foil Products are generally readily available. The majority of brands are available for next day courier delivery if ordered before 10am. Caveats may apply to small orders.

Multi Foil Insulation reflecting infra-red energy

Actis, SuperFoil, TLX and YBS multi-foil and breather membrane reflective insulation bariers

Multi-foils are most commonly used to complement rigid insulation boards, mineral wool slabs and occasionally mineral glass wool rolls. Multi-foil is generally available in four thickness’s, 30mm, 33mm, 35mm, and 40mm. However, Superfoil also manufacture 65mm and 100mm thickness’s.

Emissivity is a measure of reflective properties of an insulation product's ability to emit radiant energy. Lower values equate to better reflecting properties.

The thickness of the product has a direct impact upon the thermal values offered. Thicker radiant barrier products are likely to have a higher R-value (m²K/W). Example: Nominally, Aluminium Foil equals ±0.03 while Brick equals ±0.9

Multi Foil products were initially targeted for use at Rafter Level in Pitched Roofs.

The use of Multi Foil Installation for Flat Roofs, and at Joist Level above Ceiling Joists, requires particular measures to ensure that the potential for the generation of condensation is avoided.
SuperQuilt offer fitting instructions for Flat Roofs - Under Joist, Over Joist, and Two Layer options.

Multi-Foils are now used quite commonly installed in Timber Frame, Cavity and External Walls; and Suspended and Floating Timber Floors.

Under screed / Under Floor Heating  multi foil insulation products are also available at thickness's of 6mm to 7mm.

Multi-foil is generally available in four thickness’s, 30mm, 33mm, 35mm, and 40mm. However, Superfoil also manufacture 65mm and 100mm thickness’s.

The thickness of the product has a direct impact upon the thermal values. Thicker products have a higher R-values (m²K/W).

As well as improving the thickness's of multi-foils, their effectiveness is also being enhanced with, for example, the addition of breather membranes,.

Even the very concept of how these products are designed is starting to be radically changed, as can be seen in Actis's new hybrid insulation, Hybris.

Added competition is impacting price levels too! As can be seen in the tables below there are significant variances in the square metre price of these products. Actis Triso Super 10+ is almost double the price of YBS ThermaQuilt.


Actis Range of Multi-Foil and Associated Products

Actis Logo - Innovative Heat Reflecting Multi-Foil Insulation and Breather Membrane Hybrids

Actis was the first company to bring Multi Foil insulation to the market place. They developed Multi Foils to address the inherent problems of Single Foil insulation products to promote condensation, resulting in damp and dry rot. Actis have continued to develop heat reflecting membrane products, and now offer a range of thermal barrier solutions.
Actis pricing normally sits at the higher end of the multi-foil products scale.

Availability: These products are popular, and are commonly available at all of our depots.

Price List: Actis Triso Super 10+ Multi-Foil - Uncompressed thickness = 35mm - Aluminised polyester outer layers - Components = 19

The original multi-foil insulation - now improved. This product is effective in both summer and winter for Roofs, over rafter and under rafter, and for walls inside structure. In winter, it retains heat within buildings by reflecting infra-red energy back into the property. In summer, it reflects radiation out of the property, preventing overheating of attic rooms, for example. Certified as the equivalent of 210mm of mineral wool by BM TRADA Certification.

TLX Multi-Foil Insulation Products

TLX manufacturers, Web Dynamics Limited, have been in business for the past twenty years. They were the first British manufacturer to supply a multi-foil product that was certified by the BBA (British Board of Agrément). Thinsulex, as it was then known was the precursor of the TLX range of multi-foils and breather membranes.
TLX pricing normally sits around the middle of the multi-foil product price spectrum.
