Sisalation Tuff Wrap – Potection against the elements.
Wall wraps stop moisture from transferring from the external to the internal walls and allows building work to continue inside the home even in inclement weather. Wall wraps provide a barrier for wind and dust. Sisalation should be installed in accordance with AS/NZS 4200.2 ‘Installation requirements for pliable building membranes’. It should be installed with a 150mm overlap between runs. External cladding should be installed without delay. If you’re planning to install the insulation yourself, consider purchasing our D.I.Y Wall Wrap Install Kit, available to order online on our website.Take particular care when stapling Sisalation to the wall framing, as injury can occur if you accidentally strike your hand with the hammer staple tacker commonly used to afix the foil wall wrap to the timbers.
How does Reflective Foil Sisalation Wall Wrap Work?
Sisalation foil wall wrap basically provides a radiant barrier between a hot surface, and the area on the other side –for example between the exterior brick walls of a residential building, and the internal walls and adjoining living areas. Fletcher’s Sisalation Foil Wall wrap insulation needs an air gap of at least 2 cm between itself and the exterior wall, in order for it to work as effectively as possible. Even a small amount of of dirt or grime on the reflective surface of the foil will greatly inhibit the overall performance the reflective foil insulation. But if installed properly, foil insulation will greatly reduce the amount of radiant heat transferring through the walls and into home, which understandably will aid in maintaining the overall temperature inside the home stable and comfortable.
Sisalation insulation can be installed alone, or quite commonly, in combination with bulk thermal insulation. Ideally, any glasswool or other bulk insulation installed in conjunction with external wall wrap, should be installed so as so leave a small gap between the glasswool and the inside of the wall wrap.
