What Bradford Optimo Insulation size do I need?

To determine the right width needed, you will need to measure the distance from the middle of one joist to middle of the next joist. The measurement will be either 450mm or 600mm. For a 450mm joist width a 415mm batt size is needed and for a 600mm joist width a 565mm batt size is needed. Measure your joist height to determine your R-value. The depth will be either 75mm or 90mm.

• Width 450mm & Depth 75mm = R2.1
• Width 450mm & Depth 90mm = R2.5
• Width 600mm & Depth 75mm = R2.1
• Width 600mm & Depth 90mm = R2.5

Bradford Optimo Installation Tips

 Bradford Optimo Underfloor Insulation is designed to fit snugly between underfloor joists. When installing insulation make sure you have appropriate gear such as a light, safety glasses, gloves, dusk mask, and wear a long sleeved shirt. Switch off main power board before you begin and don’t cover any ventilation openings, wiring or equipment with insulation, if in doubt ask an electrician for advice. Remember to have no gaps between the insulation batts and do not compress the batts for maximum effectiveness and R-value.
