Superquit Insulation So Easy To Fit

SuperQuilt Insulation From Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire

SuperQuilt YBS Multi-foil Insulation

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 material.

SuperQuilt is a multi-layer Insulation blanket for use in pitched roofs. SuperQuilt offers massive thermal insulation in a thin, flexible, multi-layer mebrane.

How does SuperQuilt Work?

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). 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.

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

General Fixing Instructions

·         SuperQuilt is designed to overlap each layer of insulation by 75mm and continually seal along the joints with YBS Foil       Tape.

·         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).

·         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.
