How to Insulate Your Roof Without Any Kingspan or Celotex
Install first run of BreatherQuilt
Firstly, install YBS BreatherQuilt on the external of the pitched roof. Ensure the reflective foil is facing internally with the Breather membrane facing outwards. Starting at the bottom of the rafters, staple BreatherQuilt to the first rafter using 14mm staples (recommended 300mm intervals). Roll BreatherQuilt horizontally across each rafter, stapling continuously. BreatherQuilt should sag between the rafters as opposed to being pulled taught. Ensure that once the tile battens are installed, there is a clear 10mm gap between the top layer of BreatherQuilt and the tile battens.
Install next run(s) of BreatherQuilt
Next, install a further layer of BreatherQuilt, overlapping the product by 100mm and seal using the built in double sided tape. Staple as previously and ensure the tape is secured and sealed. This is to be repeated dependent on how many runs are required for the roof. Additional rolls on the verticals should be butt jointed on the rafters. Ensure the butt jointed rolls are stapled as previous and taped using waterproof tape.
Install Tile Battens & Tiles
At the eaves, BreatherQuilt should extend onto a suitable eaves carrier. This works in the same method as standard breather membranes. Proceed next by installing horizontal tile battens, on the top of the BreatherQuilt. Finally, finish by install tiles or slates.
Install 2 Layers of SuperQuilt Under Rafter
Both layers of SuperQuilt can now be installed from the internal (underside) of the rafters. The first layer of SuperQuilt is to be recessed in-between the rafters, the 2nd layer of SuperQuilt is to be pulled taught as a flat continuous layer, ensuring that there is a clear cavity between both layers of SuperQuilt and BreatherQuilt.
Recess 1st Layer of SuperQuilt
SuperQuilt is stapled to the underside of the first rafter. SuperQuilt is next recessed into the rafter (25mm), and fixed with staples of with battens. The material is then pulled taught and fixed to the opposite rafter. SuperQuilt is then wrapped around the rafter, ensuring stapling regularly, and the procedure starts again. SuperQuilt is overlapped by 50mm, ensure fully tape and seal using Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape over the laps and around the perimeter.
Install 2nd Layer of SuperQuilt
Once the first layer of SuperQuilt is installed, proceed by installing the second layer. Staple or nail the second layer through the first layer into the rafters behind. Ensure this layer is also pulled taught, there will then be a cavity between the two layers of SuperQuilt. As per the first layer, the second layer is also overlapped by 50mm. Ensure again the product is fully taped and sealed around the perimeter and overlaps using Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape.
Once both layers are installed and taped, you are ready for your secondary batten & plasterboard. Start by installing 25mm x 38mm battens on the insulation. We advise to cross-batten, however vertical battens can be used if preferred. Finish by installing 12.5mm Plasterboard. There is no requirement for a Foiled-back plasterboard or VCL. SuperQuilt works as a high performance Vapour Control Layer when taped and sealed using the ThermaSeal Foil Tape.
How to Fit SuperQuilt Under Rafter
SuperQuilt can be installed either vertically or horizontally, dependent on rafter height. Staple SuperQuilt to the rafters at 30mm intervals. Ensure SuperQuilt is pulled taught whilst rolling and stapling.
Overlapping & Taping
Ensure SuperQuilt Insulation joints are overlapped by min 50mm. Ensure overlaps are fully taped and sealed using Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape (75mm x 50m). SuperQuilt can be easily cut using Multifoil Scissors or a Cutting Knife - Both available in our Multifoil Fitting Kit which can be purchased to the right hand side of this guide.
At the eaves, SuperQuilt is cut around the rafters, and sealed to the cavity wall insulation or wall plate. It is vital to ensure fully taped and sealed, to ensure that SuperQuilt acts as a high performing Vapour Control Layer.
Installing Counter Battens
Fix 25mm x 38mm battens underneath SuperQuilt. This is commny installed horizontally. Deeper battens can be used if preferred or if your U-Value Calculation recommends to. Battens also must be fixed around the perimeter of windows and doors.
The plasterboard is then screwed into the battens in the usual manner. When SuperQuilt is installed as the most internal insulation layer, there is no requirement for a foiled-back plasterboard. SuperQuilt will work as a high performing Vapour Control Layer, when taped and sealed using Thermaseal Foil Tape.
How To Install TyvaQuilt Insulation To Achieve 0.18 U-Value
Install SuperQuilt (Part 1)
TyvaQuilt consists of three products building regulations. 1st is SuperQuilt Under Rafter, 2nd is Non-Itch between Rafter and finally BreatherQuilt Over Rafter. Start by installing SuperQuilt under rafter. Staple SuperQuilt and roll the product out horizontally, staple at 300mm internals. Ensure all overlaps are fully taped and sealed using Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape.
Install SuperQuilt (Part 2)
Once SuperQuilt is fully stapled & taped on the rafter, you can next proceed with your counter battens. Install battens min 25mm through SuperQuilt into the rafters behind. Ensure battens are spaced between 400mm & 600mm. Once the battens are installed, proceed with installing a plasterboard in the usual manner.
Fixing and Cutting
BreatherQuilt and SuperQuilt are to be stapled using a Heavy Duty Staple Gun & 14mm Staples. All three product can be cut using the Multifoil Scissors or the cutting knife. All these accessories are available in our Multifoil Fitting Kit.
Install EcoLoft Non Itch
Next, install EcoLoft Non Itch Wool in-between the rafters. EcoLoft Non Itch is designed to suit either 400mm or 600mm centres, with the product supplied in 380mm width or 570mm. EcoLoft Non Itch is supplied in 100mm thickness. Simply stuff the Non-Itch Wool between each rafters, leaving an airspace above for the BreatherQuilt.
Install BreatherQuilt (Part 1)
Once EcoLoft Non Itch is installed, proceed to install BreatherQuilt. Start at the bottom of the rafters, roll BreatherQuilt out horizontally, stapling at min 300mm intervals. Ensure BreatherQuilt is draped into the rafters as opposed to being installed taught. Horizontal overlaps should be overlapped by 100mm, tape using Thermaseal Double Sided Tape. Vertical joists are butt jointed, and taped using waterproof tape.
Install BreatherQuilt (Part 2)
Once BreatherQuilt is fully covered on the rafters, proceed by install tile battens. Ensure there is a gap of 10mm between BreatherQuilt and Tile Batten (in center of each rafter) At the eaves, BreatherQuilt should extend onto a suitable eaves carrier. Finish with tile/slate finish on tile battens.
What does SuperQuilt consist of?
SuperQuilt consists of 19 itch-free layers including True Aluminium Foils as the Outer and Inner layer. The other 17 layers consists of recycled waddings, PE Foams, and other reflective foils.
Is SuperQuilt harmful?
SuperQuilt contains no harmful fibres and does not release any toxic gasses when cut or installed. When installing SuperQuilt, there is no requirement for any masks, PPE or gloves.
What thickness is SuperQuilt?
SuperQuilt is available in just one thickness, which is 40mm at a relaxed thickness and will compress down to 7mm.
Do SuperQuilt require airgaps?
To gain the best thermal performance, we recommend a minimum cavity/batten of 25mm both sides of the insulation. This is to allow the product to expand and reflect. If a cavity is removed, the performance would reduce by approx 20%.
Is SuperQuilt fireproof?
SuperQuilt has a Class E Euro Fire Classification Certificate. SuperQuilt is not fully fire-proof, however the true aluminium outer layers are flame proof, meaning if a naked flame touches the product, it will smoulder as opposed to spreading.
What’s the difference between SuperQuilt and SuperFoil?
SuperQuilt is a premium product with true aluminium foils as the outer layers, compared to SuperFoil’s range which has metalized foils which provides a lower Fire Classification Grade (Fail) SuperQuilt is also fully certified, and UK manufactured compared to SuperFoil.
Does SuperQuilt achieve building regulations?
In some applications SuperQuilt will achieve building regulations stand-alone. In Roofs and Walls, you may need to use additional insulation alongside SuperQuilt to achieve your desired U-value.
Can SuperQuilt be used on External side of Walls?
SuperQuilt is suitable for insulating on both the internal and external of solid walls. Please ensure there is a min batten of 25mm both sides of the insulation.
