Aerolite® Soft Touch is a non-combustible, glasswool ceiling insulation solution that reduces the energy required to maintain a comfortable living environment. Unlike many competitive products that claim limited combustibility, Aerolite® is a certified non-combustible product which means it won’t burn, smoke, or melt in a fire as it’s made from glasswool. Aerolite® has exceptional acoustic insulation properties, it enhances your indoor environment by reducing the transference of noise from the inside and outside. Aerolite® is made of 80% recycled glass and our production process is CFC and HCFC free.

DESCRIPTION

Aerolite is a high quality, Glasswool thermal and acoustic ceiling insulation that is bonded with an inert, thermosetting resin. The strong, resilient, flexible blankets are supplied in compression packed rolls and are easy to cut and install.

TOOLS NEEDED FOR INSTALLATION

A sharp knife or wood saw, tape measure and a balancing plank (to prevent ceiling damage).

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Measure the distance between the timber roof trusses.
  2. Cut the Aerolite while still in the bag to the correct width to snugly fit the space between the roof trusses.
  3. Roll out the Aerolite between the roof trusses on top of the ceiling.
  4. It is advisable to lay the Aerolite underneath any wiring and to cut around any down lights to prevent overheating of light fitting.
  5. Wrap off-cuts around pipes to prevent them freezing in winter.

WARNING: Be careful not to step onto the ceiling board as you may damage the board or fall through the ceiling.

HANDLING & STORAGE

Store product under cover and in dry conditions. Store flat. Handle with care, especially on the edges and corners, which can be damaged if subject to sharp
or heavy impact. Do not apply excessive pressure, for example by standing or sitting on the product, as permanent damage may be caused.

ARCHITECTURAL SPECIFICATION

Install (50/100/135)mm thick flexible non-combustible lightweight “Aerolite” insulation material between the roof trusses and over brandering in a completed roof and ceiling system. Installation strictly in accordance with the manufacturer’s detail and specification.
