E-therm for Brick Walls

Cavity & Brick Veneer Walls

E-therm is ideal for all wall systems including brick veneer and double brick cavity. With excellent thermal and acoustic properties, E-therm gives one of the best “R” values in a typical brick veneer construction. E-therm is easily installed and with such a thin product is great for walls. E-therm in your walls will allow you to meet energy efficiency ratings around Australia and will assist in lowering your energy consumption, reducing both costs and carbon emissions.

Installation Cavity Brick Walls

E-therm comes in different widths and thicknesses to meet your building needs. E-therm also incorporates a 150mm foil flap on the longitudinal side of the product that can eliminate taping or overlapping in most building applications. This saves time and money during installation and ensures a vapour barrier that doesn’t rely on tape for it to work.

  1. Lay outer brickwork with all wall ties in place.
  2. Where necessary clip E-therm round spacers moderately spread on wall ties and push against brickwork.
  3. Roll out E-therm horizontally with Anti-Glare facing installer.
  4. Adjoin the next roll making sure that the 150mm foil flap overlaps the bottom roll ensuring a vapour barrier.
  5. Cut E-therm carefully around doors, windows and services ensuring a neat butt and minimising gaps.
  6. All end joins should be taped with Thermotec’s recommended E-therm 75mm reinforced aluminium tape or alternatively overlapped by rafter spacing.

  1. Start at one end and roll out E-therm horizontally from the bottom fixing the E-therm to the internal wall frame.
  2. When adjoining the next roll make sure that the 150mm foil flap overlaps the first roll.
  3. Cut E-therm carefully around doors, windows and services ensuring a neat butt and minimising gaps.
