The Guinness Partnership is one of the UK's largest affordable housing providers. Chris Wait, Head of Programme and Planning for Guinness South, said:
"We find that there's a lack of knowledge out there about the importance of protecting attic 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."
LoftZone won first prize from the Citizens' Advice Bureau in 2013, for best new idea in their Big Energy Savings Week competition.
LoftZone is grateful to Carbon Trust for supporting us when we first started. They backed LoftZone because of the huge carbon saving potential that comes from using our product.
Yorkshire Energy Services is an award winning energy efficiency company with a strong social purpose and was managing a project to clear and insulate lofts and provide a safe storage platform, to help vulnerable householders. This proved much more popular than providing attic insulation alone. Sarah Thomas, Project Manager at YES Projects said "We wanted to add the storage platform solution to the attic clear and installation project, so that the householder’s possessions could be put back in the attic without compressing the new insulation. Compressing the insulation means that it does not work to its full potential."
