FIXING DETAILS

Under Floor Heating

Lay SuperFOIL following installation details above, ensuring the clear polythene layer is on the top of the installation. 

Install chosen underfloor heating system as per manufacturers recommendations. 

Pour screed over the top of underfloor heating pipes as directed. 

Floor Level Finish

Once chosen flooring has been laid, cut the overlap of SuperFOIL that is up the wall, back to floor level using a sharp utility knife or rotary cutter. 

Pipes,Vents & Holes

At penetrations such as vent ducting, pipework etc, SuperFOIL should be trimmed to ensure there are no gaps around the penetration.
Using 100mm Superior Foil Tape ensure the SuperFOIL is well sealed around the penetration to create an airtight barrier. This can be achieved by using small sections of tape and working around the penetration.
