General fixing instructions
Installation of ThermaQuilt for pitched roof applications and additional insulation products should be in accordance with the manufacturers certificate, fixing instructions and current good building practice.
ThermaQuilt must be installed with a 50mm overlap with all joints taped with YBS 75mm foil tape.
ThermaQuilt can be cut with a YBS ThermaQuilt cutter, craft knife or a sharp pair of scissors.
ThermaQuilt can be easily fixed with staples at regular intervals. Minimum 14mm stainless steel or galvanised staples are recommended.
ThermaQuilt is most effective with a minimum 38mm air gap on either side. Battens can be used to create this gap.
No protective clothing/handling required.
How does ThermaQuilt Work?
Due to the special composition of multi-layers of insulation, ThermaQuilt effectively deals with all forms of energy transfer (i.e. conduction, convection and radiation). ThermaQuilt works most effectively by reflecting infra-red radiation. This means that not only is ThermaQuilt effective in winter by reflecting heat back into the building and cold out, but also in summer. ThermaQuilt is a very effective barrier to solar overheating which reduces the need for artificial cooling systems as it prevents the accumulation of heat within the building
