YBS BreatherQuilt – takes reroofing to new heights!

The better-performing and more affordable alternative to TLX Gold is YBS BreatherQuilt… FACT!

The cost, installation time, and space savings from this insulating 2-in-1 multifoil and breathable membrane will benefit any construction project. Also As part of our exclusive Triple Layer technique, YBS BreatherQuilt may be utilised in conjunction with a double layer of YBS SuperQuilt to obtain a 0.18 U-Value in your Roof. However it can be used on its own.

YBS BreatherQuilt is constructed from 11 layers of perforated, highly reflective foil and wadding that work together to keep your roof dry. BreatherQuilt now comes with double-sided tape built-in, making installation even easier.

YBS BreatherQuilt is also LABC and BDA-approved for Building Control. See our Free and Easy to use Online U-Value Calculator to see how BreatherQuilt can assist in your project.

BreatherQuilt is put horizontally over the rafters before the tile battens, and it comes on rolls that are only 1.2 metres by 10 metres.

BreatherQuilt should be hung loosely from the rafters before the tiles are battened. A counter batten should be installed before your tile battens if you plan on installing BreatherQuilt taught across the rafters.

BreatherQuilt is a multi-layer breathable insulation that is exceedingly flexible, simple to install and achieves a high level of thermal resistance for use on pitched roofs. BreatherQuilt has an additional outer layer of Breathable Membrane on top of its 11 layers of permeable aluminium foil and wadding. Also because you don’t have to install a breathable membrane above rafters, this additional layer of breathable membrane saves money, time, and important roof height space.

To comply with building rules, BreatherQuilt is used with SuperQuilt and other insulation materials, as detailed in our Technical Datasheet.

Created as a more affordable and better-performing alternative to TLX Gold, BreatherQuilt is a game changer!!

BreatherQuilt is made in the UK to a high level and is certified for use in building control by the LABC and BDA. Comparing this product to conventional roofing techniques will result in cost, space, and installation time savings.

So why do more Builders and Roofers choose to install YBS BreatherQuilt?

  • improved thermal efficiency
  • designed to provide better-reflecting qualities
  • thinner for installation to save room
  • cheaper
  • British manufactured to support industry
  • When using the Triple Layer Re-Roof System or the TyvaQuilt Insulation System, it is designed so that no Kingspan or Celotex is needed.

When employing BreatherQuilt, a U-Value of 0.18 or lower can be attained with ease. Installing BreatherQuilt over a rafter involves stapling it in place. To satisfy the current 0.18 building control criteria, just secure two layers of SuperQuilt in addition to BreatherQuilt.
