Medium Duty Fletcher Permastop Building Blanket for Roofs
To increase the comfort and energy efficiency of the buildings we work and live in, the right choice for effective insulation performance is Fletcher Permastop Blanket. As more and more buildings, both commercial and domestic, are being built with metal deck roofing and metal wall cladding the need to install the right insulation is crucial.
Reduce Excessive Noise
There’s a certain Australian charm about a metal roof. They look great and the sound of gentle rain on the roof is music to the ears for some. It’s when the sound of heavy rain or even hail reaches a deafening crescendo that they can be noisy and uncomfortable. Permastop insulation blanket fixed directly under the metal roof is effective in reducing the noise levels entering homes from rain, hail, aircraft and other outside noises. 75mm Permastop can reduce sound transmission through the roof by up to 18dB (A). Now residential homes can have the character of a metal roof without the compromise.
Reduce Heating and Cooling Loss
Permastop has the added benefit of providing homes with proven thermal insulation to give you energy savings and makes homes even more comfortable. Permastop used in conjunction with Pink BattsTM or Fat Batts® in the ceiling gives even more effective insulation performance. In Australia’s hotter areas Fletcher Permastop with Sisalation® reflective foil facing is particularly effective in reducing heat entering the roof space. Use Permastop to maximize your ceiling insulation performance and increase all year round comfort.
Reduce Condensation in Ceilings
Permastop is made with Sisalation® reflective foil facing on one side. This combination acts as an effective barrier against condensation forming on the underside of metal roofs. Especially when warm, moist air is vented into the roof space from bathroom and kitchen fans and vented range hoods. Moisture forming inside roof spaces can cause problems with mould forming and cause other forms of water damage to the structure.
Reduce High Energy Bills
By using Permastop under metal roofs, along with Pink Batts or Fat Batts in ceilings and walls will help make the home cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Insulation is one of the most cost effective building materials home builders can use to reduce energy bills. Combined with common sense design elements like shading windows from summer sun and weatherstripping doors and windows, homes will be more comfortable and reduces the cost of artifical heating and cooling.
The right thermal insulation
Permastop glasswool blanket insulation faced with Sisalation® is available in material R-value of R1.3, R1.8, R2.5 and R3.0 and nominal thickness of 55mm, 75mm, 100mm and 130mm. With the requirements of the Building Code of Australia demanding a Total R-Value of R3.2 in many constructions you can be confident that correctly installed, Fletcher Permastop will comply. Installing the correct insulation greatly improves the comfort of occupants by reducing the extremes of temperature and thereby reducing the need for artificial heating and cooling saving money and helping the environment.
The right acoustic insulation
Metal Deck roofing and wall cladding is a popular choice due to it’s lightweight, economy and suitability for the Australian climate. While many people enjoy the sound of rain on the roof it can become deafening in extreme conditions, especially hail. Permastop is not only an effective thermal insulation but acts as a baffle to reduce sound transmission both from outside and inside sources. The acoustic performance of 75mm Fletcher Permastop can reduce rain noise by as much as 18dB(A) compared to a metal roof with no insulation. Permastop also stops noise from the rapid expansion of metal deck roofs under the sun. For both domestic and commercial applications Permastop is the right choice to control noise down under.
Condensation & dust protection
When you create an atmosphere of warmth or coolness inside the building or home in contrast to the outside temperature, condensation can form on the underside of the metal roof or wall.
To aid in the control of condensation Permastop is faced with a moisture barrier of high quality Sisalation® foil. Not only does the Sisalation enhance the thermal quality of Permastop glasswool insulation it also acts as a non-permeable barrier to moisture. Another bonus is that the transmission of dust is reduced and in bushfire prone areas Permastop assists in preventing burning embers from entering the roof space. Permastop glasswool insulation is non-combustible.
