Staple the EcoQuilt Expert under the roof rafters
Start by stapling EcoQuilt Expert to the roof rafters using the Heavy Duty Staple Gun Kit. Ensure that the material is pulled taut across onto the next rafter. Then, Staple down the second rafter at a maximum of 2 inches apart.
Secure & Cut off any excess
Once you have secured the first section, cut any excess material off with the sharp blade provided in the EcoPro Shed Insulation Kit.
Repeat the process
Install the next section in the exact same way, stapling to the rafters and cutting off any excess. Remember to ensure a 50mm overlap of material.
Seal with ThermaSeal Foil Joining Tape
Once you’ve stapled your EcoQuilt, it’s now time to seal all of the joints and edges with ThermaSeal Foil Joining Tape. This is what creates the Vapour Control barrier.
Fixing your roof counter battens
Now you can fix the 19mm battens to secure your EcoQuilt, using screws with a minimum length of 35mm. Fix the remaining battens in the exact same way. Now, you are ready to install the surface finish of your choice.
It’s time to insulate the walls
For buildings with existing studwork, hold your insulation into place and simply recess the EcoQuilt halfway back by stapling it onto the side of the stud. Ensure a 19mm air gap either side of the insulation. Then continue by pulling the material taut before securing onto the next timber stud. Ensure EcoQuilt is stapled at minimum intervals of 300mm, using the 14mm staples provided.
Attaching battens (if needed)
If your space does not have timber uprights, you can fit 19mm battens onto the walls using screws.
Seal the with ThermaSeal Foil Joining Tape
Now that all of your EcoQuilt is stapled into position, it’s time to seal all overlapping joints and around the perimeter with ThermaSeal Foil Joining Tape to ensure an airtight seal.
Fixing your wall Counter battens
As you did with the roof, fix the 19mm battens to secure your EcoQuilt using screws with a minimum length of 35mm. Fix the battens, in the same place as the existing wall studs. Repeat the exact same process. Now you’re ready to install the final surface finish of your choice and decorate!
Enjoy your fully insulated Timber building!
