What is a Loft Leg? 

The Loft Leg is a unique design protected solution to avoid insulation compression when using your loft for storage. Government guidelines recommend that we insulate with 270mm of quilt insulation to achieve a U value of 0.16 (www.energysavingtrust.org.uk).  Thermal studies have shown that compressing your insulation can reduce its thermal properties by more than 50%. A 175mm Loft Leg fixed on top of a 100mm truss or ceiling joist provides a light weight, cost effective solution. Developed by a team of engineers and designers the Loft Leg is strong, lightweight and easy to install. The Loft Leg is manufactured in the UK from recycled polypropylene, to ISO9001 standards and has been mechanically tested by independent experts.

Loft Legs are designed to avoid insulation compression.

How many do I need?
Loft Legs are sold in boxes of 12 units. The number of Loft Legs you will need depends on the type of loft boards you are using, the distance between your ceiling joists and the area you wish to cover. You can download the pdf calculator here.
