Client: Ian Slater
Type of works: supply of TLX Silver multi-foil
Converting an old bakery and barn into a 21st Century living environment could have delivered some insulation headaches had multi-foil convert Ian Slater, not used an original BBA approved multi-foil for a solution.
TLX Silver is an established product as a performance enhancing solution for roofs when used with rigid board and glass wool.
The project required a roofing answer that met current building regulations but didnt alter the look of the property. TLX Silver was specified below rafters filled with 150mm of Isover glass wool.
Conversion maintained an elegant eaves line and the overall structural size of roof didnt increase
By using TLX Silver, the project saved time and money
Installation was easier to inspect to check insulation was properly installed
Ian Slater, architectural technologist said: I prefer to use a multi-foil over any other form of insulation. When combined with soft insulation between rafters its easier to inspect to ensure its correctly taped and battened. Rigid board insulation can hide a messy and potentially faulty installation. The added benefit of TLX Silver is that unlike some other multi-foils it is BBA approved which means we dont incur issues with Building Control when its specified.
