Install Timber Battens
Start by installing treated timber battens directly onto your solid walls. We advise the spacing's to be between 400mm & 600mm centres. Usually the thickness of the battens required are 25mm however this will depend on your desired U-value. To find the recommended batten depth for your project, visit our Free to use Online U-value Calculator.
Next, staple SuperQuilt onto the first set of battens, then roll out SuperQuilt horizontally. We recommend the use of 14mm staples when fixing SuperQuilt. Multifoil-Insulation's Fitting Kit includes a Heavy Duty Staple Gun & 5,000 14mm Staples. SUperQuilt can be easily cut using our Multifoil Scissors, available on our website.
Overlaps & Sealing
Overlap SuperQuilt by a minimum overlap of 50mm. Tape and Seal SuperQuilt using ThermaSeal Foil Tape. We recommend sealing all overlaps, joints and the perimeter to ensure a complete seal. This will eliminate the risk of condensation.
Install Counter Battens
Once SuperQuilt is fully installed and covered, install counter battens over SuperQuilt. We recommend to create a frame around any windows, and around the perimeter. Thickness of batten will depend on desired U-value. To find the recommended batten depth for your project, visit our Free to use Online U-value Calculator.
The plasterboard is then screwed into the battens in the usual manner. When SuperQuilt is installed as the most internal insulation layer, there is no requirement for a foiled-back plasterboard. SuperQuilt will work as a high performing Vapour Control Layer, when taped and sealed using Thermaseal Foil Tape. Optional Insulated Plasterboard's can be used for extra thermal benefits and to reach a lower U-Value.
