A cost effective insulation barrier which is installed under all roofs. Reduce your buildings heating & cooling costs. It also provides control of condensation and reduces outside noise. When installing- the foil should face down into the roof space, and the blanket should face up against the under side of the roofing sheets. Insulation is essential to reduce fuel bills, control condensation, retard heat flow and reduce unwanted noise created by rain and expansion and contraction of the roof. Rain noise is particularly noticeable in metal roofing and it is strongly recommended that blanket insulation be pressed up tightly against the underside of the sheeting to minimise noise caused by rain and hail. This serves dual requirements of thermal insulation and sound reduction.
Condensation : How it occurs!
The underside of a roof often provides conditions under which condensation of water vapour will occur. In cooler weather, roofs can become several degrees cooler than the outside air temparature. As a result, the air in the roof space may be cooled by contact with the roof. This depression of temparature is often sufficent to cause condensation as air is cooled, it's ability to hold water vapour dimishes. The amount of condensation will depend on the amount of water vapour in the air and this varies with climatic conditions. Flat roofs are more prone to condensation than steep or pitched roofs.
