Technical Information – Benefits Of Actis Multifoil Insulation

At Nu-Look Conservatory Roof Solutions we have been replacing polycarbonate and glass conservatory roofs with light weight solid insulated roofs for over 7 years, so how do we do it?

Below, you can see exactly how the insulated solid conservatory roof is constructed.

Firstly, we completely remove your old conservatory roof and build you a bespoke braced timber roof, this is built on site to ensure that the measurements are exact, as no two conservatories are the same. We then fit 3 layers of insulation. Actis multifoil insulation is installed between the membrane and the timber rafters, we then fit 50mm of Actis Hybris insulation between the rafters, this is then covered with 40mm insulated plasterboard with a vapour barrier, which is then skimmed to provide a smooth perfect finish, giving a U-value of 0.14.
