How To Insulate Your Walls With EcoQuilt Expert
This handy guide will show you how to easily and effectively insulate your walls with EcoQuilt Expert for year upon year of thermal protection.
EcoQuilt is a High Performing Insulation blanket that is very flexible & easy to install. It contains 6 layers of highly reflective foils and wadding that offer great thermal benefits, including a built in Vapour Control Layer that helps to reduce condensation when fully taped and sealed using ThermaSeal Foil Tape.

Install Timber Battens
Start by installing 25mm battens directly onto the solid wall, horizontally or vertically at 400 to 600mm intervals.
Cut to desired length
Roll out EcoQuilt to the desired length, before cutting with a Cutting Knife or Multifoil Scissors, both available in our MultiFoil Fitting Kit. Check out this tutorial on how to professionally cut your insulation.
Stapling your EcoQuilt
Begin at one end of the wall, hold up EcoQuilt to the right position and staple into place at 300mm intervals. We recommend using a Heavy-Duty Staple gun and 14mm staples. *Make sure EcoQuilt is pulled taut to allow product to expand & reflect into cavities. Repeat stapling across the wall and around perimeter. When installing the next run of EcoQuilt, we recommend overlapping by a minimum of 50mm.
Using Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape to seal
Once EcoQuilt is applied, begin to tape and seal all overlaps using ThermaSeal Foil Joining Tape around the perimeter and the overlaps to prevent condensation and to create an airtight barrier. We recommend 1 roll of Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape for 30m2 of EcoQuilt.
Install Counter Battens
Now it’s time to install your 25mm counter batten. Again, horizontally or vertically at 400 to 600mm intervals. We recommend these counter battens to be fixed to the initial battens. We also recommend creating a frame around any windows and around the perimeter.
Finally, once battens are fixed, appropriate plasterboard can be installed. Simply screw into your battens. This application would not require the use of a Foiled-back plasterboard as EcoQuilt Expert works as a high performing Vapour Control Layer when fully sealed with Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape. Optional insulated platerboards could be used for extra thermal benefits, if desired.
