IsoBoard is a bulk insulator, and the thicker the board chosen, the more insulation is provided. Temperatures are more stable in better insulated buildings, all else being equal. Different climatic regions require different insulation interventions to achieve simular levels of comfort, and legal compliance. Contact us to determin an appropriate thickness for your application.
The board should always be positively secured on its ends, i.e. not lef hanging loose.
Avoid butt-joining IsoBoard when used as ceilings, as these joints are difficult to conceal. Butt joints for roof lining applications should be over a purlin, rafter or truss.
IsoBoard can be readily trimmed to length using a sharp knife or hacksaw.
Keep lighting lamps which generate heat in excess of 70°C away from IsoBoard.
When fitting down-lighters, always use a swivel-type fitting and either “energy saver CFL’ or LED lamps.
IsoBoard should not be used on its own as a sound insulator, as it does not have the properties required to be a good sound absorber.
IsoBoard should be wiped with a cloth soaked in a softened water solution immediatly prior to installation to remove static charges from the boards surface, if left unpainted.
Finish with 2 coats good quality matt acrylic paint, of which we recommend the first coat to be an acrylic filler coat to cover minor surface indentations & imperfections.
Always paint IsoBoard in applications where direct or reflective sunlight will fall on the board, to protect from the effects of UV rays which accelerate the board ageing process.
Handle and install the board with care to prevent damage to board edges. Store out of the sun and weather in original packaging.
