Today's standards mean insulation sits higher than the joists in your ceiling. Any items or storage panels placed on the insulation will compress it reducing its effectiveness and potentially damaging it.
Attic Island provides a system that uses stilts to hold storage panels safely above insulation to create storage areas and walkways in your ceiling space.
Attic Island storage kits include boards and stilts, and come in a variety of sizes, covering areas from 2.16m2 to 8.64m2. Additional boards and stilts are available if you want to increase your attic storage.
Attic Island Stilts simply clamp onto your joists and are fixed by two self tapping screws. Covered with board they provide valuable storage space.
The Attic Island Stilt can be fixed to any size of joist, or to flat surfaces when the gripper at the base is folded flat.
- Create storage islands in any size or shape to hold your treasure.
- Create walkways to hot water cylinders and ventilation systems for easy servicing. This reduces the risk of trades people having to remove the insulation to safely walk on joists.
- Protect valuable insulation from compression and damage.
You can buy DIY kits and we'll deliver to you, or we will supply and install your Attic Island storage system for you (available in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin only).

4 questions & answers about this product
Why can't I store things on top of the insulation?
Insulation becomes less effective when it is compressed so storing things on top will mean it won't keep you as warm.
How tall are the Attic Island stilts?
The stilts are designed to sit on the joists and clear 20 cm above.
Can you walk on the panels?
Attic Island can be walked on and can be used as walkways for tradesmen to safely access services in your attic space. It is not advised for use as permanent flooring (eg extra room/office space).
For prolonged storage it is not recommended to exceed 50kg per square metre.
What if my insulation doesn't sit above the joists?
Insulation standards have changes so if your insulation doesn't sit above the joists then it's not sufficient. If your insulation is less than 120mm, contact Smart Energy Solutions today for a free insulation check.
