SuperQuilt Timber Frame | YBS SuperQuilt
SuperQuilt Timber Frame | YBS SuperQuilt is proven to save cost, space and labour time in timber frame solutions. It is most commonly used to the internal side of timber studs before the plasterboard, incorporating a high performance vapour barrier.
SuperQuilt Timber Frame | YBS SuperQuilt and YBS BreatherFoil FR are often used as a combination to achieve building regulations. Both products as a system incorporate built-in breather membranes & vapour control layers meaning a reduction in additional products required.
SuperQuilt is stapled directly to the internal side of timber studs or battens, ensuring staples are applied at minimum intervals of 300mm, rolling out SuperQuilt either horizontally or vertically dependent on what method works best. SuperQuilt layers should be overlapped 50mm and taped and sealed using our true aluminium Thermaseal Foil Joining Tape, ensure Thermaseal tape is also used around the perimeter.
Timber perpendicular counter battens should be then installed over the SuperQuilt, with a minimum thickness of 25mm deep. Plasterboard or internal finish is then installed in it’s usual manner.
YBS BreatherFoil FR can then be installed on the external side of timber frame, directly onto the plywood sheathing board. Benefits of using BreatherFoil in the timber frame with YBS SuperQuilt are as followed;
- Greatly improves U-value without increasing depth of build-up
- 2 in 1 Breathable and Insulation Membrane – Standard Breather Membrane no longer required
- Creates a wind tight, draught free system, protecting the timber frame and insulation
- Fire Retardant True Aluminium External Layer
