    I'm in the process of reinsulating and boarding out my loft.

    I'd like to put up some 'barrier' to stop the dust and dirt falling from the back of the roof onto the newly boarded out loft floor. My thought was to staple some sheet material to the rafters but am unsure what the best material to use would be. Most of the stuff I've seen is insulation of some sort which I don't need.

    Any thoughts on what would be the best stuff to use? Any problems associated with lining the rafters like that, or is there a better method?

    Thanks in advance.

    You could use BUILDING PAPER.
    This is water-proof and breathable (though do check on the latter if you think it matters)
    Just staple it to the rafters with a gun.

    building paper isn't breathable, just use plain old brown paper
