THE BAT FRIENDLY
TLX Insulation have used our
knowledge and expertise to create
TLX Batsafe - the bat
friendly, energy-saving breather
Bats are a protected species in the UK
and play an important role in the
ecosystem. Until now when bats are
found, only Bitumen 1F felt has been
used. This has come at considerable cost
to the thermal performance of the roof
because 1F felt requires extra rafter
space if insulation is used; in old
buildings this is often not possible.
Properties with an uninsulated 1F felt
roof can release up to 10 tonnes of CO2
per year. Replacing 1F felt with a
breathable membrane and additional
insulation between the rafters can
improve thermal performance by 87%
and reduce CO2 emissions by 57%.
These factors have a large impact
on global warming and climate
change. TLX Batsafe is designed
with a bat mesh protection system
on both sides of the membrane.
Unlike 1F felt, TLX Batsafe is
breathable, lightweight, high
strength and easy to handle. It is
suitable when evidence of bats is
found and should not be used for
