The Weather Stop DIY insulation kit is a cost-effective way to insulate your up-and-over garage door and reduce energy costs. The kit has a dual purpose; it will prevent heat from escaping out of the garage, thus reducing energy costs in colder climates; and it will prevent heat from penetrating the garage door, keeping the garage cooler in warmer climates.
The three-layer Insulation kit is a viable, more cost effective alternative to buying an insulated garage door. Made from a compact and highly efficient insulation wadding and foil laminated on both sides, this insulation makes a noticeable difference to your garage temperature. Our complete kit is an easy DIY installation without the need for any specialist tools or equipment, and can be easily installed within an hour.
The U value for the un-insulated garage door is around 5.88 W/m2.k. This is the amount of heat that is lost in watts, for every square metre of door, and for every 1Kk the temperature difference between the inside and the outside.
The U value with the insulation attached using 2mm thick spacers is 1.28 W/m2.K. This represents a 78% reduction in heat loss through the door.
The kit comes in two sizes to suit single and double width doors:
- Up to 8ft wide doors. Roll dimensions:: 714mm (W) x 7317mm (L)
- Up to 16ft wide doors. Roll dimensions:: 714mm (w) x 14634mm (L)
