Ceiling & Wall Applications - Polyester Ceiling Batt Applications Insulflex Polyester Ceiling Batts have been designed to provide efficient thermal and acoustic insulation to the homeowner and to commercial projects including project builders. Insulflex Polyester Ceiling Batts have been designed to reduce noise, heat and cold and to reduce energy costs by keeping heat out and keeping winter warmth in during winter. Correctly installed Polyester Batts will substantially decrease your air conditioning costs. The Polyester Batts are supplied in two widths to suit standard domestic constructions: 430mm wide to be placed between joists at .450mm centres. 580mm wide to be placed between joists at .600mm centres Wall Batt Applications Insulflex Polyester Wall Batts have been manufactured to specific thickness so that correct thermal and acoustic ratings can be achieved without the insulation making contact with the external walls. Insulflex Polyester Wall Batts can be stapled or taped into position so that ventilation of the wall cavity is maintained. 430mm wide to be placed between joists at .450mm centres. 580mm wide to be placed between joists at .600mm centres Ceiling Specifications CEILING INSULATION General Location: The whole of the roof area (including attached garages), except the following: Eaves, overhangs, roof lights, vents and openings, roofs to outbuildings, garages, and semi-enclosed spaces such as verandas, porches and carports. Materials Sarking membrane: Permeance to AS3999 Bulk insulation: Type: Insulflex New Wool Insulation (Fire Retarded) Ceiling Insulation R-value: R2.5/R3.0 to AS2627 Thickness (mm): 120mm/135mm/135mm Rw rating: Fire Rating: Max Rating 3 to BS5803 Flammability Index to AS1530.3 <= 5 Spread of Flame Index to AS1530.3 <= 5 Installation Support and fixing: Fit bulk insulation tightly between the roofing members to AS3999 Roofing Blanket Data Corrosion Resistance Insulflex Polyester Blankets pass the Australian Standards for corrosive effects on mild steel. Moisture Resistance Polyester is hydro phobic and thus repels water, resulting in a product that is almost unaffected by accidental exposure to moisture – provided the product can dry. Maximum Service Temperature Maximum Service Temperature is 90 Degrees Celsius. Insulflex Polyester Blankets were developed to suit temperatures normally occurring in domestic or commercial buildings. Standard Sizes & Packaging Insulflex Polyester Blankets are supplied in clear plastic packaging with coded labelling indicating type, size and thickness. The standard sizes are listed as follows: Nominal "R" Value m2K/W Nominal Thickness Roll Coverage Standard Size Foiled R1.5 50mm 18 1.2m x 15m R2.0 60mm 18 1.2m x 15m R2.5 75mm 18 1.2m x 15m Unfoiled R0.8 50mm 18 1.2m x 15m R1.1 60mm 18 1.2m x 15m R1.4 75mm 18 1.2m x 15m Roofing Blanket Applications Polyester: Insulflex Polyester Blanket is becoming increasingly popular as building insulation material for home, office and commercial sites. Polyester is hydrophobic and as such will repel water. Polyester neither absorbs nor desorbs water vapour. Insulflex Polyester Roofing Blanket is normally used immediately under the roof sheeting with the bulk insulation uppermost and the foil facing downwards where it acts as both a reflective face to control heat and also acts as a water proofing membrane when the overlaps are sealed. Insulflex Polyester Roofing Blanket comes standard at 1.2m x 15m coverage with a 150mm overlap on the foil. All blankets have light weight foil adhered as standard. Insulflex Polyester Roofing Blanket comes in three standard thicknesses of 50mm, 60mm and 75mm correlating to nominal thermal ratings of R1.5, R2.0 and R2.5 respectively. With these three sizes Insulflex are able to satisfy your requirements for roofing blankets.
