Insulation for a better tomorrow

 

 

 

Insulation between timber studs. The usual procedure for construction is;

  1. The timber frame, OSB or plywood sheathing, breather membrane etc are all installed in the normal manner.
  2. The URSA TF Roll/Slab is fitted tightly between the studs, normally fully filling the stud depth.
  3. The internal lining of vapour control layer and plasterboard are then fixed in the normal manner.
  4. The external finish of brickwork, tile hanging or external render is then installed.
  5. An enhanced U-value may be achieved by installing additional insulation internally or externally to the timber frame. Check with the timber frame manufacturer for specific requirements and details.

Insulation between metal studs. The usual procedure for construction is;

  1. The metal framing is installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
  2. The URSA TF Roll/Slab is fitted tightly between the studs, normally fully filling the stud depth.
  3. The internal lining of vapour control layer (if required) and plasterboard are then fixed in the normal manner.
  4. The external finish of brickwork, tile hanging or external render is then installed.
  5. An enhanced U-value may be achieved by installing additional partial fill cavity wall insulation external to the steel frame. Check with the steel frame manufacturer for specific requirements and details.

Other forms of external finish such as tile hanging, render, timber weatherboarding, PVC-U cladding etc are also suitable and should be fixed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
