The benefits of fire rated multifoil insulation

With the recent launch of the new SuperFOIL FR range, we have explored what the benefits are of using fire rated multifoil insulation in your home.

Fire performance of SuperFOIL FR

The new SuperFOIL FR fire rated multifoil insulation offers excellent fire performance across the whole range. Each FR product achieves a Class 0 Fire Propagation certification when used in conjunction with SuperFOIL Superior foil tape. This means that a fire will not grow rapidly when met with the product and it also does not ignite quickly. It also holds a Class 1 Spread of Flame certification, meaning that flames are unable to spread along the surface quickly. These certifications together ensure that you are protecting your building from, and reducing the spread of, fire.

Thermal performance of SuperFOIL FR

The thermal performance you can achieve will depend on the product that you choose and also the application. For example, the SuperFOIL SF60 FR has the highest R Value in each application, making it highly effective throughout your home.

The SuperFOIL FR range also includes a reflective radiant barrier which helps your building keep cool during the summer and warmer in the winter. You could use these multifoil products on their own or in multiple layers. Furthermore, you can boost u-values by pairing the SuperFOIL FR range with other insulation such as glass wool, mineral wool or sheeps wool.

Installation of SuperFOIL FR

The SuperFOIL FR range is suitable for use in roofs, walls and floors in both new builds and renovation projects. The material comes in easy-to-handle roll sizes which makes it easy to fit with minimal waste. When installing the insulation, it is important to use it in conjunction with SuperFOIL Superior foil tape. This ensures that you are achieving the Class 0 fire rating by helping to reduce or remove the passage of air when taped to the edges of the insulation. The tape is available in two different widths in standard or split back.
