How to Install Ecoquilt Expert…
Step 1. Install 25mm deep timber battens onto the UPVC beams. These are screwed onto the beams using 50mm FastFix Conservatory Screws (supplied in the Kit)
Step 2. Next, staple the insulation directly onto the battens at 300mm intervals. Ensure all Insulation joints are overlapped by a minimum of 50mm. Ensure overlaps are fully taped and sealed using Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape. Both the Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape and the Staple Gun Kit are supplied in the Kit.
Step 3. Once the Insulation products are fully taped, sealed, and overlapped, proceed with installing 25mm deep counter battens. Ensure battens are also installed around the perimeter for your internal boarding.
Step 4. Plasterboard or Plastic Cladding can be installed as the internal layer. The plasterboard is then screwed into the battens in the usual manner. We would recommend using a 9mm Plasterboard as this will keep the weight down.
Step 5. Finally, finish with plaster and then paint. It is then time to enjoy your revived Conservatory all year round! The conservatory will stay cooler in the summer, warmer in the winter, and also significantly reduce rain noise.
Before & After Insulation…
We also recommend using the ThermaFrost Tint Kit if you are insulating the underside of a glass conservatory roof. The purpose of a tint is to reduce the UV rays from the sun accessing the cavity between the glass and the reflective foil. This also looks more aesthetically pleasing as you will not see the outer layers of the multifoil through the glass.
So ask yourself, is your Conservatory currently too hot to use? If so, it’s time to Insulate it now!
