Today we are looking at SuperQuilt YBS Multi-foil insulation: what it is like, how it works, what benefits it has to offer and general fixing instructions.

What is SuperQuilt?

Superquilt is a very flexible, easy to fit, multilayer insulation that offers tremendous thermal benefits. Hot box testing confirms high thermal resistance of 2.51M2K/W for

SuperQuilt accompanied by a 25mm air cavity either side of the materi­al­Su­per­Quilt is a multi-layer Insulation blanket for use in pitched roofs. SuperQuilt offers massive thermal insulation in a thin, flexible, multi-layer membrane.

How does SuperQuilt Work?

SuperQuilt works most effectively by reflecting infra-red radiation. This means that not only is SuperQuilt effective in winter by reflecting heat back into the building and cold out, but also in summer SuperQuilt is a very effective solar over heating barrier reducing the need for artificial cooling systems, preventing uncomfortable heat build up in the roof.  

Due to the special composition of mulit-layers of insulation SuperQuilt effectively deals with all forms of energy transfer (i.e. conduction, convection and radiation).

The introduction of a unique method of stitching reduces cold bridging commonly seen with other multi-foil insulation material.

Benefits of SuperQuilt:

  • Fast and simple installation
  • Ideal for loft conversions
  • Keeps your house warmer in winter
  • Keeps your house cooler in summer
  • Lightweight, thin and flexible

General Fixing Instructions

  • SuperQuilt is designed to overlap each layer of insulation by 75mm and continually seal along the joints with YBS Foil Tape.
  • SuperQuilt is at the most effective with a 25mm minimum air gap on either side. Using battens can create this gap. This will give you the maximum insulation benefit.
  • No special equipment is needed to install SuperQuilt.
  • SuperQuilt can be cut with a craft knife or a sharp pair of scissors.
  • SuperQuilt can easily be fixed with staples at regular intervals (minimum staple depth is 14mm).
