Did you have a look around or just ask someone, i find that some people that work for companies like b&q let the others down, most of the time due to the cba attitude.. If you are still looking for some, go onto the website and check if the specific store does them, if they show stock, go back onto the product and write the *EAN* number down and take it down, they can find the specific item on the computer with that very code (y)

Someone mentioned Jablite, you can use it but it's basically polystyrene, so is made out of all the little beads that go everywhere, you're better off with extruded foam, although its a little more expensive.

The B&Q space board is extruded foam. About £4 a sheet.

it might just be your B&Q store dont stock it, as not all of them do.
only 1 out of the 4 bristol stores i visit stock it, just go into the insulatation isle and if its there its there.....
they normal stock the brand 'space' so it will have a massive logo on it like this... http://www.space-insulation.com/_ima...aceboard_1.jpg
but they may also stock 'kingspan' or 'celotex' and they do their own brand but its all the same thing

jabalite (is totally different)its basically polystyrene not a foam base

if you have no luck go to wicks...
Space Board 52.5x500x1200mm - Loft Insulation - Insulation -Building Materials - Wickes

or try screwfix and ebay

This stuff is what I think you want. They also do a thicker one.
