Air-Reflect Insulation


The quality of Air-Reflect’s components gives it benefits specific to a Reflective Thermal Barrier:

  • The more the Radiation is reflected, the less heat transfer occurs
  • Heat-producing appliances run less
  • Energy savings in winter and in summer
  • Heat comfort in winter and in summer
  • Reduced need for air conditioners in summer

In the home, Radiation is a Heat Transfer mode that is just as important as conduction and convection. 

The Air-Reflect Reflective Thermal Barrier is an obstacle to outside and inside radiation. It keeps the heat inside in the winter and reflects the sun’s Radiation in the summer.

Air-Reflect also forms a complete barrier, sealing out air and wind, and greatly limiting convection. As it is seamless, Air-reflect effectively seals out rain run-off, fog and powdery snow. Since Air-Reflect contains no mineral fibers, it does not absorb water and prevents condensation problems. The absence of humidity lowers the hygrometry rate by 15 to 20% compared to rooms insulated with standard insulation products.

Air-Reflect is stable, 100% rot-proof and totally hypoallergenic. There is no risk of crumbling material, so no airborne microparticles that may be harmful to the lungs and skin.

It is a clean product that neither collects dust (antistatic), nor retains bacteria, odours or dirt. Being neutral, it does not attract rodents, birds or insects. Finally, Air-Reflect is particularly resistant to crushing (C.S.T.B. No.CPM/02-0009, 16th April 2002).

Unlike standard Glass/Stone-based insulating products, Air-Reflect’s insulating power remains constant over time. Its lifetime is almost infinite. Moreover, Air-Reflect is 100% recyclable.

Not only does Air-Reflect have a high thermal performance but it also has extremely high air-tightness qualities.

How To Install Air-Reflect

Under Rafter Install

Apply Air-Reflect directly to the rafters from the roll. This can be done either horizontally or vertically.
We recommended starting at the bottom of the roof and working up and over when starting horizontally. When installing Air-Reflect vertically, we recommend starting at the high point of the rafters and rolling the product down the rafter.
Apply tension to the product whilst stapling it into place. Staple through the product into the rafters at approximately 120mm intervals using the 14mm staples. Once you have finished a length, simply cut to the correct size and then continue fixing the next layer of Air-Reflect. Ensure to overlap the joints and seal with the self-adhesive tape at the roll of the roll
Ensure secure fixing by stapling the insulation onto the rafters where the joint crosses.
Seal all joints, tears, and cuts with aluminum foil tape, paying special attention to any penetrations through the insulation to ensure an airtight finish.
At the eaves, trim Air-Reflect around the rafters and seal to either the wall plate or cavity wall insulation if present.
Once you have the Air-Reflect installed, fix counter battens on top of the insulation horizontally (maximum of 600mm centers) to allow for a Low E air space and service void then apply plasterboard.
