All you will need is an electric screwdriver and some self-tapping screws (around 1¾ inches long).
Just follow these 4 simple steps to create a strong platform that will hover over your insulation the the loft:
Position the Loft Storage Stilts on the joists to ensure they are in the right place for your boards – The the edges and corners of the boards should be supported with the stilts.
Tip – You can use fewer stilts with bigger the boards as there will be fewer edges.
Note – Loft Storage Stilts should never be spaced more than 600mm apart so remember this when using larger boards.
Using an electric screwdriver, secure the stilt to the joist by screwing one or two 1¾ inch screws into the ‘wing’ section of the stilt.
Tip – If you are having your insulation fitted by a professional installer then stop after step 2. Once the fitter has laid the extra insulation you can carry on to steps 3 and 4.
Lay the insulation between the Loft Storage Stilts – crossways over the existing joists and insulation. The circular plates should be poking out the top of the insulation.
Place the boards onto the stilts.
Tip – 2, 3 or 4 boards can be secured to each Loft Stilt.
Using an electric screwdriver, secure the boards to the stilts by screwing 1¾ inch self-tapping screws through the boards and into the top plate of the stilt.
