Design and Installation

Insulating an existing wall changes the heat and moisture patterns in the wall, so it is vital to carry out condensation risk analysis before undertaking any work on site. To minimise the risk of condensation the joints between Quinn Therm QW boards should be taped with metalised tape to form an AVCL which will prevent moisture from the building interior condensing on the cold side of the insulation.
