E-therm for Framed Walls

Metal & Timber Framed Walls

E-therm is ideal for all metal & timber wall applications. The added benefit is that E-therm will also comply with the Thermal Break requirement set by the Building Code of Australia. So E-therm is the original all-in-one insulation solution. There is no need to worry about two or three products for your insulation needs as E-therm is all that is required.

Installation “Counter Batten Method”

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 tapping or overlapping in most building applications. This saves time and money during installation and completes a sound vapour barrier that doesn’t rely on tape for it to work.

  1. Roll out E-therm horizontally from bottom up fixing to the external frame with Anti-Glare facing installer.
  2. Adjoin the next roll making sure that the 150mm foil flap overlaps the bottom roll ensuring a vapour barrier.
  3. Cut E-therm carefully around doors, windows and services ensuring a neat butt and minimising gaps.
  4. Fix counter battens to the outside and fastern exterior cladding to recommended requirements from the cladding manufacturer.
  5. All end joins should be taped with Thermotec’s recommended E-therm 75mm reinforced aluminium tape.

 

Installation

  1. Roll and fix E-therm to the outside of the frame making sure the product is loosely fitted with flexibilty creating a dished effect within the cavity.
  2. Adjoin the next roll making sure that the 150mm foil flap overlaps the bottom roll to create a vapour barrier.
  3. Cut E-therm carefully around doors, windows and services ensuring a neat butt and minimising gaps.
  4. To ensure air gap is maintained apply E-therm spacer if necessary to parts of the product.
  5. Fix counter battens to the outside and fasten exterior cladding to recommended requirements from the cladding manufacturer.
  6. All end joins should be taped with Thermotec’s recommended E-therm 75mm reinforced aluminium tape.
