Room-in-the-roof (C07 S06)

Solutions to enhance acoustic and thermal comfort.

In a typical building, a significant amount of useable floor area can be gained by utilising the roof space.

Whether working on a new-build design or conversion project, minimising energy loss through the roof should be a major consideration. Providing a well-insulated and airtight roof construction will contribute to the overall energy efficiency performance of the building.

Key benefits

  • Flexibility of space is achieved without having to resort to expensive build on-costs, with a subsequent loss of land
  • Enhanced thermal comfort is achieved with minimal loss of head room through the use of low thermal conductivity (l) Gyproc ThermaLine laminates giving a combination of excellent thermal insulation and minimal thickness
  • Significantly improves acoustic performance of the element, minimising external noise disturbance due to the incorporation of Isover glass mineral wool within the timber structure
  • Isover insulation will compress to fit between the timber structure, with no need to cut, this reduces waste, installation time and thermal bridging
