Skillion ceiling constructions...
Suitable Products:
  • Autex Polyester Batts are available in two standard widths to suit most ceiling joist construction at 430 mm and 580mm to fit 600 trusses.  A non-itch, non-irritant and non-allergenic product safe to install and handle for all other trades and safe for the home owner to live with.  Particularly good for the colder climates or dual climates where winter heating costs are the larger energy cost of a home.

  • Concertina Foil Batts are ideal for hotter climates where summer heat gain is the major problem and airconditioning cost are high.  Reflecting 97% of radiant heat and similar to the "Thermos Flask" principle, Concertina Foil Batts keep summer heat out and hold winter heat in.  Application is versatile. For un-insulated ceilings, simply place or staple between timber ceiling joists. For existing bulk insulation, place on top to protect from summer radiant heat loads and reduce winter heat loss. Where no sarking foil exists, stapling between roof rafters lowers roof space temperatures, particularly where bulk insulation and airconditioning systems are not performing due to massive summer radiant heat.  Raked ceilings, with or without exposed beams under tile or tin roofs benefit by stapling Foil Batts between rafters.  Ideal for roof attic conversions and extensions. Concertina Foil Batts are a safe, clean, non-irritant, easy to handle insulation product. During the summer period roof cavities can reach 70 degrees plus, with tile and metal surfaces reaching 100 degrees C.   Ever wondered why your bulk fibrous insulation and air conditioner is not performing under summer heat loads?  Concertina Foil Batts are a revolutionary foil insulation product used for walls, floors, and ceilings and unsarked tile and metal roofs. The solution to eliminating summer radiant heat. Foil Batts reflect 97% of radiant heat transfer and do not absorb, retain or conduct heat, dramatically reducing summer heat loads on existing bulk insulation and air-conditioning ductwork in roof cavities therefore making inside room temperatures more comfortable.  Foil Batts do not cover any roof or ceiling timbers, maintaining clear access for electrical services, pest inspection and general safety whilst in the roof space.
