How To Install Airtec Double
The following guide will display how to install EcoAirtec Double
EcoAirtec consists of a 4mm bubble layer with true aluminium foils bonded to both side. It works by slowing down heat transfer, aswell as retaining and repelling heat. Having reflective foils both sides will create a more ambient temperature all year round.
EcoAirtec can be used in a variety of applications as is very multi-purpose. These applications include roofs, walls, floors, garden building, sheds and many more!
Airtec Double can be purchase from Ecohome Insulation in 4 sizes, with free delivery on 2+ rolls!

Measure Area & Cut Insulation
Measure the area of the section you are insulating. Then roll out the insulation and cut to size. Our insulation can be cut with scissors or a cutting knife, both these can be found in our multifoil fitting kit.
Staple EcoAirtec Double
To gain the best thermal performance it is recommended to have an air cavity either side if the insulation. Staple the insulation directly on the studs or rafters at 300mm centres. Once the next layer is installed, either horizontally or vertically, ensure the product is overlapped by 50mm.
Tape and Seal with Thermaseal Foil Tape
It is vital to ensure the insulation is fully taped and sealed using Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape. Our Foil Tape is 75mm therefore this will cover a 50mm overlap. It is crucial to ensure the insulation is fully taped and sealed over all overlaps and around the perimeter. This ensure the product works as a high performance Vapour Control Layer.
Counter Batten Insulation
Once the insulation is fully covered and taped and sealed, to gain the best thermal performance we recommend installing a counter batten over the top. 19mm deep battens would be suitable, spaced apart around 500mm. This will create a solid finish to screw the internal board to.
Finish with Internal Boarding
Finish the project by installing internal boarding on the battens. Plasterboard, cladding or timber boards are popular options.
