LOFTZONE: INVENTION OF THE YEAR 2013

To protect insulation from compression, and to provide safe access, LoftZone has brought to market a raised deck, called StoreFloor. It is popular with homeowners, having won first prize for Best New Invention at the Ideal Home Show, but has also been designed for the trade, being fast to install and also very strong. Moreover, LoftZone is the only solution on the market that complies with Building Regulations Parts K, L and P, Working at Height and CDM Regulations, and so it is no surprise that it is increasingly being specified by architects and clients, both for new build and retrofit.

One recent adopter was the Guinness Partnership, who installed the system in 65 properties in London. Chris Wait, Head of Programme and Planning, was pleased that the LoftZone product had come on to the market. He said: “We find that there’s a lack of knowledge out there about the importance of protecting loft insulation, as it doesn’t perform as well if it’s squashed. The LoftZone platforms provide that protection and they also provide safe access routes to components that need repairing, such as water tanks. We intend to continue using the systems when replacing roof coverings.”
