How do I install Jablite Jabfloor 70 Polystyrene EPS Insulation?
To install Jablite Jabfloor 70 Polystyrene EPS Insulation, you can follow these steps:
1. Safety Precautions:
- Make sure you have the necessary safety equipment, including gloves and eye protection.
- Work in a well-ventilated area, especially if cutting or handling the insulation indoors.
2. Prepare the Work Area:
- Clear the area of any debris or obstacles.
- Ensure that the surface where you'll install the Jablite Jabfloor is clean and dry.
3. Cutting the Insulation:
- Measure and mark the insulation boards to the required size using a straightedge and a marker.
- Cut the boards to size using a sharp utility knife or a fine-toothed saw.
4. Fitting the Insulation:
- Place the cut insulation boards into position, ensuring they fit snugly together without any gaps or overlaps.
- For underfloor insulation, lay the boards on a level and firm surface. You can use adhesive to secure them in place if necessary.
- For wall insulation, insert the boards between the wall studs or attach them to the exterior of the wall, depending on your application.
- In the case of roof insulation, position the boards on the rafters.
5. Securing the Insulation:
- Use appropriate fixings, adhesive or support structures to ensure the insulation remains in place.
- For underfloor insulation, cover the insulation boards with a suitable screed or chosen floor covering.
- For wall insulation, you may need to install a vapour barrier or cladding over the insulation.
- In roof insulation, consider covering the insulation with roofing felt or other roofing materials.
6. Finishing Touches:
- Seal any gaps or joints with compatible sealant or tape to enhance the Jablite Jabfloor’s effectiveness, dispose of any waste materials properly, and clean up the work area.
Is Jablite Jabfloor 70 Polystyrene EPS Insulation flammable?
Jablite Jabfloor 70 Polystyrene EPS Insulation is categorised as Euroclass E for fire safety, indicating it has low flammability characteristics. It resists easy ignition and will naturally extinguish when a flame source is removed. However, it's essential to emphasise that, like all polystyrene insulation materials, it remains flammable and should never be exposed to open flames or direct fire sources.
