Foil-Tec - Timber Frame

  • Single
  • Double

Installation of Foil-Tec VCL Single for Timber frame applications and additional insulation products should be in accordance with the manufacturers fixing instructions, certification and current good building practice.

Foil-Tec VCL is applied directly from the roll either vertically or horizontally depending on the wall height, pulled tight and stapled onto the stud. The foil side of the material should face the adjacent air space. All overlaps and perimeters must be taped and sealed using YBS Foil Tape.

If there is no cavity present between the studs, fix horizontal counter battens, minimum 25mm by 38mm, to the timber frame at appropriate centres. Battens must always be placed at the top and bottom of the wall and around the perimeter of doors and windows.

The plasterboard is fixed to the battens in accordance with manufacturers fixing instructions.
