New pitched roof

BASF Enertite spray foam can be installed between rafters to the required thickness in order to provide a particular level of insulation or U-Value. The open cell spray foam can be cut flush with the adjacent timbers to allow for plasterboard fixing or can be sprayed proud of the roof rafter to the desired thickness.

BASF Enertite insulation can be applied to breathable roofing membranes provided a counter-batten is place above the felt covering and below the tile / slate batten in accordance with Irish and UK Building Regulations.

Existing pitched roof

BASF Enertite can be applied directly to a vapour permeable rafter slide placed between rafter timber to act a separation layer betweenthe foam insulation and non -breathable roofing membrane. This rafter slide is positioned to maintain a clear 50mm ventilation void as required by regulation. BASF Enertite is applied to the required thickness in order to provide a particular level of insulation or U-Value. The open cell spray foam can be cut flush with the adjacent timbers to allow for plasterboard fixing or can be sprayed proud of the roof rafter to the desired thickness.

Timber frame wall

BASF Enertite can be applied directly onto OSB between timber studs to achieve the required U-value and airtightness level. Mechanical and electrical services can be fixed within the foam material however the use electrical conduit is recommended. BASF Enertite spray insulation can installed to fully fill the timber studwork and is shaved flush with the inner stud facing prior to the application of the VCL and plasterboard inner lining.

Refurbished wall

BASF Enertite foam can be applied directly onto a dry solid masonry wall, between timber studs to achieve the required U-value and airtightness level. Mechanical and electrical services can be fixed within the foam material however the use electrical conduit is recommended.

BASF Enertite spray insulation can be installed to fully fill the timber studwork and is shaved flush with the inner stud facing prior to the application of the VCL and plasterboard inner lining.

Attic floor

BASF Enertite open cell spray foam can be installed between horizontal ceiling joists to the required thickness in order to provide a particular level of insulation or U-Value combined with airtightness. The open cell spray foam is ordinarily applied to below the uppermost level of ceiling joists. A counter joist can be fixed onto the ceiling joist to allow for a thicker layer if required.

If downlighters are present they must be encapsulated with cover prior to the application of foam. Although electrical cables can be submerged within the foam layer it is recommended to route these through conduit for ease of access at a later date.
