BreatherQuilt Installation

General fixing instructions

Installation of BreatherQuilt for pitched roof applications and additional insulation products should be in accordance with the manufacturers certificate, fixing instructions and current good building practice.

Start at the bottom of the roof by rolling BreatherQuilt across the rafters and staple in to place. Tape a line of double sided tape along the top edge of the material.

Install the next layer of BreatherQuilt using the 100mm membrane overlap. Staple as before then secure with the double sided tape, to cover the joint.

BreatherQuilt can be cut with craft knife or a sharp pair of scissors. Staple at regular intervals. Minimum 14mm stainless steel or galvanised staples are recommended.

No protective clothing/handling required.
