At last! A simple solution for new build loft storage

Loft Leg Ltd., the market leaders in loft storage solutions, is very excited to announce its new arrival, the Loft Leg XL.

The Loft Leg XL has been developed specifically for new build homes with very deep insulation over and above the standard government recommendations.

Government guidelines currently recommend that homes are insulated with 270mm of quit insulation to achieve a U value of 0.16 W/m²K. However, new build homes can often be installed with up to 400mm of insulation to meet much stricter insulation targets. Thermal studies have shown that compressing insulation can reduce its thermal properties by more than 50 per cent, therefore a 300mm Loft Leg XL fixed on top of a truss provides a cost effective, easy to fit solution.

The Loft Leg XL has been rigorously tested by independent experts and can withstand compressive forces of over 700Kg. It is perfectly safe to walk on and store up to 25kg per square metre. However, the product does not change the load bearing characteristics of the loft. Loft Leg XL’s can be purchased from as little as £15 for a box of 12 (providing up to 2.5sqm of raised storage).

Gareth Storey added:

“Having received lots of calls from customers with new build homes looking for a low cost simple solution it was clear there was a real market need. We spent two years developing and testing the new larger Loft Leg to ensure it performed as well as our standard Loft Leg.  The Loft Leg XL is an ideal solution for builders and developers looking to provide additional value for their new build home customers.  We are really excited to add the Loft Leg XL to our successful range of loft storage solutions.”

Other products from Loft Leg include loft shelving, lighting and downlight covers.
