Order various insulation materials for Pipes, Lofts, Acoustic or Fire Protection in one place!


www.insulationandlagging.co.uk is now carrying an expanded range in stock

Alongside our core range of pipe insulation materials we are also offering a host of new products for wider applications, making it even easier for you to get the best prices in one place with Nationwide coverage and free delivery on orders over £250 inc VAT as well as a range of Next Day and timed delivery options (orders for next working day must be placed by 2pm).

We offer both encapsulated and traditional loft insulation (in a handy space saving pack) - you should aim to have a depth of 300mm of mineral fibre loft insulation if you are not using your loft for storage space; this is typically achieved by having 100mm laid between the joists (this is the usual depth) and then laying 200mm at an opposing angle across the top.

Our acoustic options will suit several applications. The Acoustic partition roll is a lightweight, non-combustible glass mineral wool insulation roll. The flexible roll allows easy installation between common stud spacings and minimises on-site cutting and waste. Superglass Acoustic Partition Roll (APR) is designed to provide thermal and acoustic insulation for the following applications: Timber and metal stud partitions, Internal separating walls and floors as well as Drylining systems.

Multi Acoustic Roll is manufactured at a minimum density of 10kg/m³. It is also designed to provide thermal and acoustic insulation for the for the same sorts of applications but has a higher density and is available in thicker rolls up to 100mm Thick.

The Acoustic Pipe Insulation options are typical used to provide noise prevention from 110mm soil pipe; the Acoustek Pipe Wrap is specifically cut to fit this size and each piece will cover 1.2m. If you are ordering this kind of product, don't forget to add a few rolls of 75mm Wide Foil Tape as you will need it to seal your seams, butt joints and it is best to put a loop around the middle of the section as well for extra strength.

Fire protection is an area you should not get into unless you are sure you know what you are doing - we offer a range of fire protection products from stock but please consult with the specifying architect or local planning authority if you are not sure what you need. We can offer advise on the products that we supply but not on what you should use for a given application. 



We stock Fire Ccollars, Pipe Wraps, PyroDuct Slab, Putty Pads, Fire Batts as well as a range of sealants, mortars and coatings - if you need any data sheets on these products just get in touch.

You can order online or give us a call on 01942 295926 if you need more advice on any of the above items - we have nearly 40 years of experience between us in the sales office!

The Beginners Guide to Pipe Insulation: Flexible Foams

Next up in the series we are doing on pipe insulation is "flexible foams"; a category that includes polyethylene and expanded nitrile rubber.


Polyethylene Pipe Insulation
Climaflex pipe insulation is the UK's leading brand for polyethylene pipe insulation. This is the grey foam that most people are familiar with, the kind you would traditionally find in garden centres for example. Polyethylene is the cheapest, widely available product in the market. People very often wrongly assume cheap means poor quality, this is not the case with a brand such as Climaflex. It has a thermal conductivity of 0.034 W/m.K at 0°C which is broadly equal to that of any other flexible foam, and it also has a much higher "μ factor" than other foams, making it more resistant to moisture ingress. These facotrs make it ideal for use around the home, being easy to work with and providing good insulation. 
The material can be purchased in 1m and 2m lengths, and is available in wall thicknesse…

The Beginners Guide To Pipe Insulation: Getting to grip with the basics

Our Beginners Guide series of blogs will look at the common areas of pipe insulation lagging that you will want to look at when choosing your product. This guide will be of most interest to the DIY installers, but some of our later guides will cover more complex products and areas of application.

One of the things we get asked about a lot is what the dimensions quoted for pipe insulation actually mean. You will always see three measurements quoted when describing pipe insulation; Wall Thickness, Bore Size and Length.

In the below diagram, A is the "Bore" and B is the "Wall".

Wall thickness is very simply how much insulation you have; so for example if you have 13mm Wall pipe insulation, then that means you have 13mm of insulation on either side of your pipe. This thickness is very often one of the most important part of your decision; too thin and you might not get the results you are looking for but too thick and it might not fit between your pipe and the wall.

Frost protection for domestic pipes

With the cold weather approaching we thought it would be a good idea to touch on how best to protect your pipes from frost this winter.

When dealing with frost protection on pipes inside a building your aim with insulating them is to delay the onset of freezing for as long as possible; it is not possible to guarantee a pipe will not freeze by insulation alone. The better the insulation, and the thicker the insulation, the longer you will give yourself. Under normal circumstances you aim to give yourself about 8-10 hours protection against sub zero temperatures. With pipes inside a home this is usually long enough to be sure the pipes will not freeze.


Ice formation inside the pipes will lead to an increase in pressure. As the water tries to flow this pressure will increase, and eventually will lead to the pipes bursting. A burst pipe can cause a lot of problems, not least of which is a lot of damage to your property and a lot of expense incurred.

Water regulations state that all water …
