Novia FF1 is a low-emissivity foil faced, scrim-reinforced premium building paper used in a wide range of user-defined applications where rubber and plastic are unsuitable with diffusion moisture barrier capability.

FF1 is suitable in air leak and vapour control barrier applications (AVCL and VCL) for insulated walls, roofs and floors.

To provide an airtight seal, it must be installed in conjunction with the Novia two tape sealing system.

Its highly reflective surface delivers improved R-values and U-values when installed facing a minimum cavity of 25mm.

FF1 is strong and tear-resistant material with an aluminium foil facing which improves the insulation performance.

This high-spec building paper is low vapour permeable and minimizes interstitial condensation.

Economical solution for non-plastic and non-rubber Vapour Control Layer applications.



Exceptional barrier stop capability.

Helps buildings meet BS 5250.

Install with Novia two tape sealing system.

Minimizes interstitial condensation.

Improves the insulation performance.

Ideal for use with Novia breather membranes in insulated frame applications.



All Novia VCL products should be fully sealed to the structure using a Novia double-sided butyl tape and one of the foil or BOPP lap tapes.

The wider the tape used, the stronger the final seal will be and the easier it will be to install.

Novia recommends the 30mm wide butyl tape and 60mm metallized BOPP tape for all standard VCL installations.

No matter whether you choose a local installer or a national company, there’s a few tips to help you find the right installer for your home insulation improvements, such as asking for recommendations and making sure that they’re part of a certification scheme. This makes sure that they have the right skills and standards of workmanship to carry out the installation, and you can be sure that they know exactly what they are doing.


1. Thermal inspection picture in portfolio

It’s worth seeing a installer’s previous work. There’s no harm asking if you can see any properties nearby that they’ve installed insulation in. Best way would be to see Infrared Thermal Imaging Inspections. Thermal cameras spot small, but key changes in temperature in different areas of a house, identifying problematic areas that the human eye never could and some that a visual inspection could only hypothesize.

2. Reviews

Along with checking recommendations and previous work, finding reviews online can often be a great way to find out if they provide a good service or not. However, it’s best not to solely rely on reviews you may find or review websites, as there’s no controlling who writes them.

3. Compare prices

Comparing prices will also ensure companies can’t take advantage of you and give you a fair price. 

4. Word of Mouth

The best way to find a great insulation installer is through recommendations. Make sure you ask friends and family. They will most likely give you their honest opinion and can tell you from first hand experience.


Whether you require a wall, cladding, external wall, loft or floor insulation fitted, you can find and hire your local insulation installers from popular UK web pages. A simple internet search will return thousands of potential installers near your area.
