How to Install

First you will need to install vertical battens to your existing wall. Apply SuperFOIL directly to these battens either horizontally or vertically.

When applying horizontally start at the bottom and work up the wall overlapping where each layer meets. When installing vertically start at the high point and roll down the studs.

Apply tension to the SuperFOIL as you staple in place;  regular intervals of 50mm to 100mm spacing is recommended. Cut to length and fix the next layer.

Overlap all joints by a minimum of 50mm and staple onto the stud work where the joint crosses the stud. Seal all joints using SuperFOIL tape.

At the top & bottom trim SuperFOIL allowing a little overlap, seal the SuperFOIL as conditions dictate to create a continuous layer of insulation using SuperFOIL tape.

Apply tape to any tears, cuts or joints.

Then Install a batten to create an air space and onto the batten fix a breather membrane (NOTE: If using SF19BB no additional breather membrane is required) followed by you wall finish such as timber cladding.

At the floor & ceiling trim SuperFOIL allowing a little overlap, seal the SuperFOIL as conditions dictate to create a continuous layer of insulation using SuperFOIL tape.

Apply tape to any tears, cuts or joints.

Then Install a counter batten to create an air space and onto the batten fix your internal finish such as plasterboard.

Note: SuperFOIL acts as a vapour control layer (Excluding our breathable products) when installed correctly as such an additional VCL is typically not required, if you are concerned that there may be a condensation risk in your particular circumstances please contact us and we can run a condensation risk analysis calculation.

How to Install

Apply SuperFOIL directly to the studs from the roll either horizontally or vertically.

If an OSB board is required for racking: To achieve maximum performance a batten should be fixed to create an air gap on both sides of the SuperFOIL.

Install battens sized according to the product. Always apply battens around window reveals.

When installing horizontally start at the bottom of the wall and work up to the top, overlapping at each junction.

When installing vertically start at the high point and roll down to the floor.

Apply tension to the SuperFOIL as you staple in place;  regular intervals of 50mm to 100mm spacing is recommended. Cut to length and fix the next layer.

Overlap all joints by a minimum of 50mm and staple onto the batten/stud where the joint crosses the batten/stud.

At the floor & ceiling ensure extra length is allowed to ensure a good seal is created. Then fix with a batten.

Seal all joints, cuts & intrusions (such as pipes, ducting etc) using SuperFOIL tape before fixing your external surface to the battens.

It is best practice to use a breathable membrane layer such as SFBB, to act as a secondary rain barrier and reduce the risk of condensation.

If installing SF19BB, a separate breathable membrane is not required as SF19BB provides both insulation layer and breather membrane in one.

Overlap all joints by a minimum of 50mm and staple onto the studs where the joint crosses the rafter.

At the floor & ceiling ensure extra length is allowed to ensure a good seal is created. Then fix with a batten.

To fix plasterboard, install counter battens sized according to the product used. Always apply battens around window reveals. Seal all joints, cuts & intrusions (such as pipes, ducting etc) using SuperFOIL tape before fixing plasterboard to the battens.
