Insulation for Outdoor Shed

The Project

When lockdown hit Big Dog Little Dog (a small social enterprise helping organisations to improve the way that they support people suffering from poor mental health), they soon found they were unable to deliver their important mental health training to other businesses.

With thoughts of the future, it was decided that they needed to be able to deliver their training remotely from a convenient location. With a little planning, a new 9sqm shed was purchased and converted into an external broadcasting studio to allow delivery of their mental health awareness training.

The Problem

Kevin was looking for something to insulate the whole of his newly built garden shed to make it suitable to use as a broadcasting studio for delivering mental health training. With a need to provide excellent value for money whilst still providing high thermal performance in a thin product, the search was on.

Self-proclaimed to be rubbish at DIY, it was important to find a product that was simple to install and didn’t require any specialist tools.

Kevin was looking for something that wouldn’t require too much work after installation, and decided to opt for something that he would be able to cover with OSB or with fabric.

How We Helped

Kevin decided to use SuperFOIL SFBA MP bubble foil to insulate the inside of his newly built shed. Insulating the roof, walls and doors. It was important to get a product that provided good value for money whilst still providing a high thermal performance so that it would be comfortable to work in the building, whatever the weather.

SuperFOIL SFBA MP is bubble foil insulation. At only 3mm thick it is the perfect insulation for sheds and other similar buildings. Providing an R-value of 1.45 when installed in a wall. Our bubble foil insulation is made from corrosive resistant materials and acts as a vapour control layer as well as a radiant barrier.

Kevin stated that he was “SuperRUBBISH at DIY” which is one of the reasons he chose to use the SuperFOIL products, as they are quick and “SuperEASY” to install. SFBA MP made the perfect addition to the broadcasting studio.

Loft Conversion

Actually, I bought Superfoil for my small extension and I must say easy to install and it works, room is comfortable better than Kingspan. Now looking at installing an underfloor in my daughter's house. Thanks!

I'm really grateful for all the info you've provided, many thanks. To be honest I didn't think your stuff is as good as it clearly is, and we'll definitely be using it in the future. Can I ask a favour and ask you to calculate two more please?

In the past, I used SF19 for thermal insulation of the roof. I have the best experience. I'm thinking about insulating the house outside wall. As I want to be clear, I will definitely call. Many satisfied customers wish.

We’re delighted with the thermal improvements after fitting Superfoil SF40. The system was clearly and helpfully specified, simple to install and immediately felt warmer, despite this also being the Winter of Beast from the East. It suits our 200 year old house, now heated with a modern, green air source heat pump.

Many thanks for all your assistance with this matter, you have been very helpful. The information you have provided has been very useful to one of our customers and I am now more familiar with this type of double fit of SuperFOIL as a suitable method of achieving compliance with The Building Regulations.
