INSULATION FROM THE OUTSIDE
Are you redoing the roof?
Insulate from the outside. Place the Space Reflex between the structure and the roof.
BENEFIT – Creates a barrier against cold, heat and humidity.
INSULATION FROM THE INSIDE
a simple solution?
Insulate from the inside. Fix the Space Reflex under the structure, with the advantage of placing a vapour barrier between the insulation and the finish in the same product.
BENEFIT – Efficient and more economical solution.
Insulate your attic floor with Space Reflex.
Benefit – A quick, low-cost solution that pays off. To maximize the reflective effect of the insulation, it is recommend using a 2 cm air gap.
FUNCTION / PURPOSE
The thermal insulation of a sloped roof is essential for the thermal balance of the entire building. The function of the Space Reflex is to prevent the passage of temperature from outside to inside and vice versa.
FEATURES OF SPACE REFLEX PRODUCTS
The Space Reflex Reflector is ideal for under tile insulation, due to its:
> Adaptation to any surface
> Ease of application
How to apply
The only tools needed are a cutter, aluminium tape and some fastening materials.
STEP BY STEP
In the application of concrete slab on the outside, the SPACE REFLEX reflective product:
01 > must be applied from the bottom up on a slat (PVC, metal or other fastening elements) through a mechanical fastening to the support (liquid nail, steel nail, staples, screws, or other types of fastening).
02 > horizontally, overlapping each strip 5 to 10 cm, sealing this joint with aluminium adhesive tape so that the thermal bridge is sealed, so as not to cause thermal bridges (uninsulated or poorly sealed spaces).
03 > the slat must be placed as the insulation goes up.
Tips and advices
> Do not damage the SPACE REFLEX insulation with your feet or any materials, preferably work on the slatted.
> The ridge must be ventilated.
INSTALLATION OF INVERTED ROOFS
Respect the rules
The insulation of inverted roofs (low tile on the concrete slab with wooden slat, low roof and traditional wooden structure) as with any other thermal insulation, must comply with installation standards, so as not to compromise the effectiveness of Space Reflex insulation.
You must respect the air gaps, in order to obtain the maximum benefit from the reflective effect.
It is important to have air gaps for perfect ventilation of the slab, so the Space Reflex solution (double air gap effect) is ideal for the construction of any roof, thus allowing effective ventilation of the tile and slab.
With the application of the slat, it has the necessary air gap built for a perfect ventilation of the roof.
