How To Install a SuperQuilt Curtain
Installing First Run of SuperQuilt
Firstly roll out the SuperQuilt to the desired legnth and attach the SuperQuilt to wooden purlins or rafters using staples or nails at 200mm intervals, we recommend to lip the SuperQuilt round the top of the Purlin and staple onto the back of the purlin as shown in our image below. This will allow the purlin to take the weight of the SuperQuilt.
Cut SuperQuilt to the desired legnth using a sharp pair of Multifoil Scissors or sharp blade. Ensure that you have left enough material for step 3.
Installing Wooden Battens / Weights
We recommend to use 50mm joists to act as a weight for the bottom of the curtain, this will prevent the curtain from moving and will give a rigid finish to the application. Lip the SuperQuilt over the joist and staple onto the top. You can then trim off any excess material if required.
Installing Second run of SuperQuilt
You can then proceed installing another run of SuperQuilt in the same method as step 1. We recommend to overlap the insulation by atleast 50mm to ensure the curtain can then be sealed.
Taping and Sealing Joints
After the SuperQuilt has been installed we then recommend to tape and seal all overlaps using ThermaSeal Foil Joining Tape. This will prevent draughts and cold from entering the usable space and seal the curtain together.
Creating a Door Panel
SuperQuilt can be cut vertically and then horizontally to then create an insulated door panel. We recommend to tape over the joints using ThermaSeal Foil Tape and use a velcro hook and loop to open and close the door
You will now have created an insulated curtain with an opening and closing door. This will help retain heat in the working space while reflecting the cold away. During the summer months this will also reflect excess heat away, keeping the working space at a usable temperature, all year round.
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 Insulate Above a Concrete Floor Using SuperQuilt
Installing first run of SuperQuilt
SuperQuilt can be rolled out vertically or horizontally along the concrete floor. Leave enough material at the edges to protrude SuperQuilt Insulation above the floor deck. Ensure the concrete floor is fully clean, flat, and debris free.
Joints and Taping
Ensure SuperQuilt is butt jointed with other layers on both the verticals and horizontals. (No overlaps). Fully tape and seal all butt joists of SuperQuilt with Thermaseal 75mm ThermaSeal Foil Joining Tape.
Timber battens or joists are then laid over the top of SuperQuilt - at 400mm centres (evenly spaced). The minimum batten depth is 50mm, increasing the batten depth enhances the performance. SuperQuilt will compress to around 7mm when timber is installed above.
Finish with Flooring
Proceed with installing your timber boarding floor. The deck is then fixed at 200mm centres, with 37mm screws into the joists or battens below
How to Fit SuperQuilt onto Solid Walls
Install Timber Battens
Start by installing treated timber battens directly onto your solid wall. We advise the spacing's to be between 400mm or 600mm centres. Thickness of batten will depend on your desired U-value however most commonly 25mm battens are used.
Next, staple SuperQuilt onto the first set of battens, then roll out SuperQuilt horizontally. We recommend the use of 14mm staples when fixing SuperQuilt. This can be purchased as part of our EcoPro Multifoil Fitting Kit!
Overlaps & Tapes
Ensure all SuperQuilt Insulation joints are overlapped by 50mm. Ensure overlaps are fully taped and sealed using Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape. Ensure SuperQuilt is also fully taped and sealed around the perimeter. SuperQuilt can be easily cut using Multifoil Scissors or a Cutting Knife - Both available in our EcoPro Multifoil Fitting Kit.
Install Counter Battens
Once SuperQuilt is fully installed and covered, install counter battens over SuperQuilt. We recommend the battens to be fixed perpendicular to the first set, as this will reduce compression on the material. We also recommend to create a frame around any windows, and around the perimeter. Thickness of batten will depend on desired U-value. To find the recommended batten depth for your project, visit our Free to use Online U-value Calculator.
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. Optional Insulated Plasterboard's can be used for extra thermal benefits dependant on U-Value required.
How thick is SuperQuilt Insulation?
SuperQuilt Insulation compresses down to between 10mm and 7mm depth, when installed. In its uncompressed / open state its 40mm thick.
Can I install SuperQuilt without an air gap?
Yes - however, to get the optimum performance out of SuperQuilt we advise that you have an air cavity either side of the product (Minimum 25mm)
Why do I need an air gap?
The air gaps enable the SuperQuilt Insulation to reflect and perform. Having the cavities in place gets the optimum performance out of the products. If the air cavity is not present the performance lessons.
If I only have space for one air cavity, is this better than none?
Absolutely - if you can get one air cavity that is better than none. If this is the case and you can increase your one cavity from 25mm to 38mm or better 50mm this will counter some of the negatives of not having a cavity on both sides.
I am going through building regulations - can I use this product?
Yes - SuperQuilt is BBA & BDA Certified, approved by LABC for Building Control. If you would like us to assist you with achieving your u value, get in touch!
