The more affordable and higher-performing alternative to TLX Gold is YBS BreatherQuilt… FACT!

YBS BreatherQuilt is a 2-in-1 breathable membrane and multifoil insulation that will benefit any construction or reroofing project. You will save on cost, installation time, and space by using BreatherQuilt. We have also created a fully insulating reroofing solution that will allow you to obtain a U-Value of 0.18 which is the current building control criteria. This is called the Triple Layer Technique which combines YBS SuperQuilt with YBS BreatherQuilt. BreatherQuilt is installed above the rafters and SuperQuilt is applied in a double layer below the rafters.

BreatherQuilt is made from 11 layers of perforated highly reflective aluminium foil, wadding, and an outer fully waterproof breathable membrane. These all work by allowing moisture to pass from the inside to the outside but not allowing any water to penetrate from the outside. Also due to its layers of wadding and aluminium foil, it has great thermal properties. BreatherQuilt has double-sided tape pre-attached to the roll to ensure installation goes as smoothly as possible.

YBS BreatherQuilt is also LABC and BDA-approved for Building Control. See our Free and Easy to use Online U-Value Calculator to see how BreatherQuilt can assist in your project.

When installing BreatherQuilt you apply it horizontally across the rafters before the tile battens, it’s supplied in rolls that are 1.2m by 10m. It should be hung loosely before the tile battens are fitted. However, if you’re wanting to install the BreatherQuilt taught a counter batten should be installed before the tile batten.

To comply with building rules, BreatherQuilt is used with SuperQuilt and other insulation materials, as detailed in our Technical Datasheet.
