  • Award

All timber exposed to the outer cavity, except naturally durable species should be treated. SuperQuilt is applied directly from the roll either vertically or horizontally depending on the wall height, pulled tight and stapled onto the timber battens at minimum 300 mm centres.

SuperQuilt should be overlapped at each joint by approximately 50 mm and stapled onto the battens, the joins should be sealed using 75mm YBS Foil Tape.

Vertical battens, recommended 25 mm by 38 mm are fixed to the vertical battens; battens should always be placed at the top and bottom of the wall and around the perimeter of doors and windows.

The carrier board is fixed over the product and onto the battens, the external rendered finishing should comply with BS EN 13914-119.
