Hey all, just installing underfloor bats. They only come in 420mm pieces and our joists vary 420 up to 480....it’s an old house.
What’s best, run the bats parallel to the joist and then cut a thin full length to the fill the gap. Alternatively I could run sections perpendicular to joists this way no thin sections but more joins.
Any ideas would be great.

Probably less waste installing parallel. And as you say, less joins that could impact performance.
Thanks for getting back to me. I have just had an update from the manufacture who has suggested running the batts perpendicular so will go for this.
