Insulation for a better tomorrow

Installation - Partition Walls

 

 

URSA Acoustic Roll is designed to fit between the studs against the plasterboard lining. The usual procedure for construction is;

  1. Fit the timber or steel studs in the normal manner and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Seal the studwork system including sole plates and head plates against the surrounding structure with a flexible sealant.
  2. Fit 12.5mm plasterboard, either nail or screw fixed, to one side of the partition. The plasterboard must give a minimum mass per unit area of 10 kg/m².
  3. Install 25mm (minimum) URSA Acoustic Roll between the studs against the first layer of plasterboard ensuring the entire area is covered. The insulation may be secured to the head plate using a screw fixed timber batten.
  4. The other layer of 12.5mm plasterboard (minimum 10 kg/m²) is then fixed.
  5. Ensure that all joints around the partition and around service penetrations are sealed using a flexible sealant.

Installation - Internal Timber Floors

 

 

 

URSA Acoustic Roll is designed to fit between the floor joists above the plasterboard ceiling. The usual procedure for construction is;

  1. Fit the floor joists in the normal manner and in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

  2. Fit 12.5mm plasterboard, either nail or screw fixed, to underside of the joists. The plasterboard must give a minimum mass per unit area of 10 kg/m².

  3. Install 100mm (minimum) URSA Acoustic Roll between the joists on the plasterboard ensuring the entire area is covered.

  4. Install the floor deck (chipboard, timber boarding etc) in the normal manner.

  5. Ensure that all joints around the floor perimeter and around any service penetrations are sealed using a flexible sealant.

URSA TF Roll/TF Slab is installed in both leaves of the separating stud wall and URSA Acoustic Roll is used in the cavity between the two leaves. The usual procedure for construction is;

  1. Fit the timber frame walls in the normal manner and in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions ensuring a minimum of 240mm between the inner faces of the wall linings and 50mm separation between the studs of each leaf. If plywood sheathing is used ensure a 50mm (minimum) gap is still maintained.
  2. Install URSA Acoustic Roll between the frames. High tack spray adhesive may be used to secure the Acoustic Roll to one of the leaves when using plywood sheathing. Ensure the insulation thickness fully fills the cavity with allowance made for on-site tolerances.
  3. Install URSA TF Roll/TF Slab between both frames fully filling the depth of the studs.
  4. Install vertical cavity barriers (for acoustic, thermal and fire performance) ensuring that they are contiguous with the party wall insulation.
  5. Ensure that partially completed walls are protected from inclement weather and at the end of the day's work.
  6. The plasterboard is installed on both faces of the party wall in the normal manner.
