I have a wooden shed already built and was wanting to insulate it.
The batons to the shed walling give me 43mm. I have an opportunity to get some free kingspan insulation to do it, however it is 50mm thick.

Is it possible to use this and squash it down with the plywood boards I am going to put over them?

Please post this where the members can see and advise you. I'm sure others have done the same and can help you find the best and best cost for your project.

You will not squash the Kingspan. Rip down some strips of softwood about 9 or 10 mm thick and pin these to the 43mm thick framework. Cut and jamb the Kingspan in place and then fix your ply. I thick the small gap will help you getting a good fit if you have cut the Kingspan a bit to tight.

Hi, top left-hand corner you’ll find forums and you go in there and find the right one for the sort of question you’re asking. Now your shed no it will not compress, but the plywood will span the batons and just leave a gap and screw into the batten or if you’re really fussy use some seven mil thick strips. Ian
Ps welcome.
