SuperQuilt Re-Roofing Systems
SuperQuilt Re-Roofing Systems | YBS SuperQuilt and YBS BreatherQuilt are fully LABC & BDA certified products to be used in re-roofing systems. SuperQuilt Insulation’s solutions can assist in achieving U-values in new build and refurbishment / extension projects.
SuperQuilt Re-Roofing Systems often start with YBS BreatherQuilt stapled onto the external of the rafters. BreatherQuilt has a built-in breather membrane, meaning there is no requirement for an additional breathable felt on the rafters. Install BreatherQuilt by rolling out the multifoil at the bottom of the rafters, stapling at intervals of at least 300mm spacing’s, once the first layer is installed, repeat this process with the second layer ensuring there is a horizontal overlap of 100mm minimum. Fully tape the 100mm overlap using Thermaseal Double Sided Tape.
Dependent on the cavity below the BreatherQuilt would determine if a counter batten before the tile batten is required. If the cavity is less than 50mm an additional batten on the rafters is usually required, if there is 50mm clear gap, then YBS BreatherQuilt can be draped into the rafters/battens with a single tile batten used.
YBS SuperQuilt is then installed on the internal on our systems in the usual method, for further technical information on SuperQuilt please click here.
