LoftZone StoreFloor is an award-winning, fully patented, loft boarding system designed especially for installing flooring over the full depth of insulation in a loft.
LoftZone StoreFloor can hold up to an impressive 500kg per square meter due to its Tri- and Uni-Supports made from extremely strong engineering-grade recycled plastic, making it much stronger than the joists of a typical loft.
This supporting structure creates a very strong and safe platform that easily surpasses the British Standard 6399-1:1996 for minimum floor load requirements.
You can find out more information on the size and strength of StoreFloor, as well as links to lots of photos and videos on our FAQs page.
LoftZone StoreFloor is suitable for almost all lofts, new and old, including cut, purlin and truss-roofed types. It’s frequently fitted in both houses and commercial buildings and is the only product that has official approval for use in new-build properties in the UK.
The old way to raise boards above insulation, using timber, is no longer recommended. The timber is heavy, can’t easily avoid obstructions, doesn’t work with uneven joists and, importantly, acts as a ‘cold bridge’ letting heat escape through your insulation. In new properties, architects are not allowed to specify timber for this purpose any more, unless they add in extra insulation elsewhere to make up for the heat that escapes along the timber.
