Egger launches an attractive cost effective solution for loft spaces


Wood panel manufacturer Egger UK has launched a new range of decorative floor panels specifically designed to make boarding out loft and attic spaces a simple job for DIY enthusiasts.

Egger Decorative Protect Loft Panels are easy to fit and feature an attractive decorative oak wood-grain finish. They are manufactured to a P5 grade making them moisture resistant and structural and they also provide the opportunity to span up to 600mm between joist centres.

The panels are simple to install, hard wearing, and the unique decorative oak-effect finish means no additional floor covering such as carpet or vinyl is required, which also offers the benefit of saving on project costs and installation time.

Previously, boarding out lofts and attic spaces was usually limited to a non- structural raw 18mm P4 grade tongue and groove panel which cannot be walked on and only spans up to 400mm joist centres.

Egger specification manager Daniel Clarke said: “Increasingly, households are seeking to add value and create more usable space within the home by converting loft, attic or utility spaces as a cost effective alternative to moving house.

“Our new Decorative Protect Loft Panels have been designed to add value to the home by offering an attractive, simple solution which is both durable and versatile so it will fit through standard domestic loft hatches.”

The panel sizes are 1200 x 350 in a 22mm thickness which will cover a maximum span of up to 600mm centres, 3 panels are supplied per pack for easy transportation and lifting and will cover approximately 1.26m².

Egger2Each panel has a precision tongue and grooved interlocking profile on the two long sides of the board to make panel installation quicker and easier when used in conjunction with Egger’s D3 Adhesive. Step-by-step fitting instructions are supplied with every pack.

Egger Decorative Protect Loft Panels are also suitable for use in structural applications when used in conjunction with structural floor timber or I Joist. This makes them ideal for use in a variety of settings such as cloakrooms, conservatories, utility rooms and garden buildings.
