Don't overlook insulation in your suspended ceiling

Don't overlook insulation in your suspended ceiling

When embarking on a suspended ceiling installation, it's crucial not to neglect the insulation aspect. Just as you wouldn't leave pipes unlagged or the loft uninsulated, the same principle applies to your suspended ceiling. Even without additional insulation, a well-chosen suspended ceiling can enhance room warmth, simplify and economise heating, and provide superior acoustics.

For substantial insulation advantages, often accompanied by acoustic dampening or fire retardant properties, it's advisable to incorporate additional insulation. The good news is that this is a lightweight, cost-effective, and remarkably straightforward endeavour.

Suspended Ceiling Insulation Pads

Among the simplest forms of insulation for your suspended ceiling are insulation pads. Each pad is a self-contained pillow of rock or mineral fibre encased in polythene. Installation is a breeze – just place a pad on each tile. The low weight won't harm the tile but significantly enhances its insulation and acoustic dampening properties. Ensure complete coverage by lifting a ceiling tile, filling the surrounding area, replacing the tile, and repeating the process across the entire ceiling.

The enclosed nature of each pad eliminates concerns about irritating fibres. Our range includes insulation pads ranging from 25mm to 300mm in thickness, available in Thermal, Acoustic, and Flame Retardant variants.

How to Install Insulation Pads
  1. Remove a ceiling tile from the ceiling grid.
  2. Use ladders to safely access the space above your ceiling system via the hole left by the removed tile.
  3. Place insulation pads on each surrounding tile, ensuring complete coverage.
  4. Repeat the process throughout your entire ceiling system, then replace the ceiling tiles.

This straightforward approach to insulating your suspended ceiling not only enhances its performance but also eliminates the need for costly professional labour.

Suspended Ceiling Insulation Roll

For even more effective heat loss reduction, consider the use of thermal ceiling rolls. The principle of installation aligns with that of a standard loft, requiring the removal of ceiling tiles at intervals along a straight line. Progressing from one tile to the next, ensure the roll is laid straight, abutting the prior roll.

Our online selection includes Thermal Insulation Rolls and Acoustic Insulation Rolls, offering diverse solutions to meet your specific needs.

Should You Insulate Above a Suspended Ceiling?

Insulating above a suspended ceiling holds multiple advantages, offering both thermal and acoustic insulation options. Considering your specific requirements for insulation, energy efficiency, sound control, and temperature regulation, insulation ensures a comfortable environment while improving hygiene, particularly in commercial and industrial properties.

Acoustic Insulation for Suspended Ceilings

When selecting insulation for suspended ceilings, prioritise acoustic insulation for its noise reduction benefits. Ideal for commercial spaces, offices, and schools with high footfall or extensive conversations, acoustic insulation delivers outstanding performance. Rest assured that the materials used in all our insulation options come from the UK's biggest manufacturers, guaranteeing exceptional quality within your budget.
