What is Raised Loft Boarding?
Raised Loft Boarding is loft flooring installed ABOVE the level of your loft insulation to protect your insulation and energy savings by leaving an airflow gap between the boards and insulation. This is achieved by fixing the boards onto a strong subframe, which is raised above the joists. Our raised loft boarding over your insulation will save you money. This is something that boarding your loft with timber cannot do.
What is Loftzone Storefloor Loft Boarding?

What you need to know when you are doing DIY Loft Boarding Project
- Personal protections
- Make sure not blocked any ventilation (pre and post insulation)
- No leak from roof
- should walk on joist, use crawling board screw to the joist while working
- Check and identify cable (some cables are high voltage cables; those may melt if it covered from insulation)
- Please check if there are any downlights. If it is advisable to cover those from fire rated downlight caps. If you don’t put insulation over the downlight you may keep 50mm gap around the downlight but that may lose your heating and also often you can find fire rated downlights, still we recommend you to cover those downlights with fire rated caps as some by mistake change any of those fire rated downlights to normal downlights it may cause fire.
- Pipe insulation and tank insulation jacket helps some energy savings and protect freezing from winter months.
- Don’t keep all loft boards in one place. This may increase weight in that particular area of the ceiling
