Contributes to indoor comfort and lifelong energy savings by reducing heat loss/gain due to the inherent thermal insulation properties. A dry wall system correctly designed and insulated will offer the same or better thermal properties than a conventional brick and mortar construction.
Offers exceptional acoustic properties and enhances indoor environmental quality by absorption of noise. Isover insulation reduces sound transmission to and from a room or building. A dry wall system correctly designed and insulated will offer the same or better acoustical properties than a conventional brick and mortar construction.
- Steel frame buildings
- Timber frame structures
- Dry wall systems
- Designed for use in cavity walls but may effectively be used on top of ceilings, along the roofline, or within masonry wall cavities
- Odourless, inert and fully compatible with all standard building materials and components
- Will not promote corrosion of steel, copper or aluminium
- Will not sustain vermin
- Will not breed or promote fungi, mould or bacteria
HANDLING & STORAGE
Store product under cover and in dry conditions. Store flat. Handle with care, especially on the edges and corners, which can be damaged if subject to sharp or heavy impact. Do not apply excessive pressure, for example by standing or sitting on the product, as permanent damage may be caused.
TOOLS NEEDED FOR INSTALLATION
Batts are designed around the frame/stud system for ease of installation, therefore minimal tools are required. A sharp knife/blade will come in handy for off-cuts and for slitting batts to fit over piping and conduits.
- Open packaging allowing space for the initial immediate recovery of compressed product.
- Push individual batts firmly into the cavity space with glass tissue facing on the exposed side.
- Use a sharp knife to slit the Cavitybatt to encapsulate piping/conduits.
- Use a sharp knife to cut batt around any plug points.
- Make sure that there are no gaps, which will cause thermal and noise leakage.
