About this deal

The hatch will then press up against the tape when it is closed and create the necessary seal to prevent the draughts from passing through. And this is actually quite common and one that can be made much much worse if the insulation is being squashed. If the chimney flue isn't too wide, you should be able to seal it by simply stuffing some wool-type insulation into the opening. Yes, we do but our transport charges incorporated in the site do not cover these areas, please contact our sales team on 01858 455055 during office hours for costs; or we will contact you to make the additional payment once you have completed your online purchase.

All plumbing or mechanical connections need to be sealed using a rigid or flexible waterproof barrier. Each of these openings in the building fabric is a potential source of draughts if not properly sealed. The first stage of draughtproofing is to identify any areas where air is entering or leaving your home. Barclays will shut at least another 77 bank branches throughout 2024 and 2025 after announcing 20 more closures. We hope this has given you a fairly quick and easy solution to stopping that annoying loft draft from entering your home!The hygienic fire and smoke seals are extremely popular in hospitals, schools and kitchens because they're easy to wipe clean, unlike standard intumescent seals with a nylon brush, helping to reduce the spread of bacteria. Each has its benefits and aesthetic differences, but all are highly effective at preventing draughts from entering your home. I cant seem to find any polystyrene insulation that is rated as fire proof in any way or doesn't this matter?

The insulation will both slow heat loss and add ballast to the hatch to improve the seal at the weatherstripping. This is fairly simple process; essentially you just need to attach the insulation to the top of the loft hatch. Less heating means using less energy, so you can do your bit for the environment by draught-proofing your loft too.If the loft hatch is hinged, the compression seal or the foam strip must be placed on the exterior perimeter on the top of the loft hatch. Cut four pieces of Polystyrene Rigid Insulation about 1/2 inch smaller than the dimensions of the hatch. So, in a bid to combine fitness with frugality, I've rounded up 20 ways you can exercise and get fit without spending a penny, both outdoors and at home.

Even when you have a fully insulated loft with boarding you should still have air flowing through the gap between the flooring insulation and the underside of that boarding. You could face it with plasterboard which will be easier to file to shape and blend in more (though it will be more fragile). However, the boards kept falling off the double-sided tape, so it's now got a load of parcel tape holding it down as well now. All damaged or missing items should be reported to the driver and signed for as damaged or missing, wherever possible.When more than one property shares a loft, the GL251 Lockable Drop Down Loft Door prevents access to the roof space. This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees. Once the styrofoam or wool insulation is firmly in place, then you can start sealing the opening using draught-proofing strips. The bottom edge has had a brush seal installed but the second image shows that this is less effective. If we’re not installing something like a Fakro loft ladder that comes with a fully-insulated hatch and frame then we build one bespoke.
