This How-To-Guide will display how to install SuperQuilt on the internal of Solid Brick Walls.
SuperQuilt is LABC, NHBC and BDA certified for use in Solid Brick Walls. Our Multi-layered Insulation material is popular in both refurbishment projects, and also new builds.

Install Timber Battens
Start by installing treated timber battens directly onto your solid wall. We advise the spacing's to be between 400mm or 600mm centres. Thickness of batten will depend on your desired U-value however most commonly 25mm battens are used.
Next, staple SuperQuilt onto the first set of battens, then roll out SuperQuilt horizontally. We recommend the use of 14mm staples when fixing SuperQuilt. This can be purchased as part of our EcoPro Multifoil Fitting Kit!
Overlaps & Tapes
Ensure all SuperQuilt Insulation joints are overlapped by 50mm. Ensure overlaps are fully taped and sealed using Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape. Ensure SuperQuilt is also fully taped and sealed around the perimeter. SuperQuilt can be easily cut using Multifoil Scissors or a Cutting Knife - Both available in our EcoPro Multifoil Fitting Kit.
Install Counter Battens
Once SuperQuilt is fully installed and covered, install counter battens over SuperQuilt. We recommend the battens to be fixed perpendicular to the first set, as this will reduce compression on the material. We also 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 dependant on U-Value required.
