Thermaseal Weatherproof Tape
Waterproof tape for BreatherQuilt
Thermaseal Weatherproof Tape is an essential ancillary item to be used when installing YBS BreatherQuilt. Tape is an important ancillary item that should be used to tape and seal any vertical butt joints on pitched roofs when insulating with BreatherQuilt Insulation.
Install BreatherQuilt with Thermaseal Waterproof Tape
Firstly Install the BreatherQuilt Insulation across the rafters and staple it to place.
Install the next layer, overlapping by 100mm. Follow by using the in-built tape (a tape that’s already attached to the BreatherQuilt, to secure this layer).
Only the vertical butt joints should be taped. This vertical joining method provides weather protection.
Thermaseal Waterproof Tape is supplied in 50mm x 50m rolls.
For every 10 rolls of BreatherQuilt 1.2 x 10m – order 1 Roll of our Thermaseal Weatherproof Tape

How to Fit BreatherQuilt over Rafter
Install First Layer of BreatherQuilt
Starting at the bottom of the roof, roll BreatherQuilt across the rafters and staple in place at 300mm intervals. Ensure BreatherQuilt is draped in-between each rafter as opposed to being pulled taught. It is vital that a 10mm clear gap is formed at the center of all rafters. The gap is between the top layer of BreatherQuilt and installed tile batten.
Fixing and Cutting
Ensure BreatherQuilt is stapled at 300mm intervals, using min 14mm deep staples, or nails. BreatherQuilt can be cut with either Multifoil Scissors, or a Cutting Knife. Both the cutting tools, along with a Staple Gun & Staples are available in our Multifoil Fitting Kit.
Once the first run of BreatherQuilt is fully fixed, and is draping into the rafters, proceed next by taping a line of 50mm Thermaseal Double Sided Tape along the edge of the material. Install the next layer of BreatherQuilt in the same manner as the first. Overlap the first and second layer by 100mm, ensuring the double sided tape is secure and sealed.
Where 2 layers of BreatherQuilt meet on vertical sections, we advise these layers to be butt jointed, not overlaps. These joints should be taped over with a suitable 50mm waterproof duct tape.
At the eaves BreatherQuilt should extend onto a suitable eaves carrier. Proceed with tile/slate battens and tile/slates.
