How to Install Foil-Tec Single (Roof Installation)

Difficulty: Easy • 5 Steps

This How to Guide details how you can Install Foil Tec Single VCL. Specifically we focus on the Roof application, under rafter – but you can also benefit from using this product on Walls too.

This is a Step by Step Installation Guide. It details how you can install our Foil-Tec Single VCL, in a Roof Application.

When you have installed our corrosion resistant, reflective and robust vapour control layer you’ll benefit from both its condensation control and thermal benefits.

It surpasses the conventional vapour control layer, owed to it providing strength and reflective thermal properties – in addition to vapour control.

Method Steps

  1. Roll Over the Rafters

    You can install the Foil-Tec Single VCL by rolling it directly over the roof rafters. You can either roll the insulation out vertically or horizontally. You can choose whether to install it vertically or horizontally, depending on your roof height.

  2. Pull Tort and Staple

    Ensure that the foil is facing the facing the adjacent air space. Pull the Foil-Tec Single VCL tight and staple in to place, on to the roof rafters.

  3. Tape and Seal

    To ensure that you benefit from the Vapour Control Layer then Tape and Seal all around the edges and the joints - using our Thermaseal Foil Joinint Tape.

  4. Fix Counter Battens if Required

    If you do not have an air cavity between the rafters, then we recommend installing battens horizontally (25 x 38mm battens) at 600mm centres.

  5. Install your Chosen Finish!

    You can then follow with plaster boarding.
