I have some insulation to push into some awkward spaces, including through
a narrow (~1") aperture. Insulation (even PIR) is not known for its rigidity
under compression. I'm probably looking at multifoil or thin PIR, with
stuffing in fibreglass as a backup plan.
Are there tools that would be useful for this?
It really wants things that can not only push (or pull the far end or a
loose thing), but also disengage when the
insulation is in position.
So far I've come up with:
Cable rods, eg:
- I'm not sure whether these are going to bend if they meet any obstacles?
- similarly, only perhaps more robust?
- good in compression, strong and long, but usually rather chunky (cast iron
Litter grabbing tool
- might do it, although many are quite fat?
Any suggestions what else might do this job?
