How to correctly store Kingspan TP10
If you have to store TP10, then we advise that you keep it in a dry and secure environment. Harsh weather conditions can cause damage to the board and therefore reduce the effectiveness of the product itself. We suggest that you keep the product stored inside if you can. If this is not an option then make sure that the product is well covered over with a waterproof material to prevent rain from getting on the boards. If the boards do get slightly damp, make sure you clean and dry them before installing them.
When storing TP10 ensure that they are not stacked too high on top of each other. Also do not place heavy objects on the boards themselves. This is because too much pressure can cause the boards to damage. Ensure that TP10 insulation is kept on a flat level surface.

How to install Kingspan TP10 between rafters?
Installing Kingspan TP10 insulation is identical to the install process of any other PIR board in a pitched roof. Below we have written a brief guide on how to install Kingspan PIR.
Before you begin, you will need a few items. These include:
- PPE such as a face mask, goggles or protective clothing. This is due to small fibers produced when cutting which can sting the eyes and irritate the skin.
- Either a fine-toothed saw or sharp utility knife.
- A Tape measure and pencil
When installing TP10, ensure the work space is dry and clear from any contaminants.
Installing insulation between rafters
Firstly measure the section in which you wish to fit the insulation. Use a tape measure and mark the insulation to match the section you wish to fit insulation in.
If the insulation needs cutting down to size, simply use a hand saw to make a direct cut. You can also score the board with a utility knife and snap the board down your score line.
Once you have the right size, your insulation can be slotted and fixed into the rafters. Ensure that it is snug but not pushing against the rafters. You can use a flat block of wood to pat against the rafters to check that the insulation is secure and in place.
Some people choose to use expanding foam or wool to fill any gap in uneven rafters. Measure the rafters in order to lay another sheet of insulation board vertically across the horizontal insulation.
Fasten suspension rods spaced 600mm apart to the rafters using a screwdriver. Lay another sheet of insulation on the suspension rods vertically. Immediately fasten the suspension clips onto the suspension rods.
Attach metal furring profiles to the suspension clips and secure them with double-sided aluminium tape.
Peel the back of the tap and apply a vapour control layer across the metal profiles. Add another layer of tape around all edges including the roof and floor and spaces between layers.
Kingspan products are designed for use in over, under and between pitched roof rafters in lofts. There is a difference between 'warm roof' and 'cold roof' installations. The following helpful guide on the Kingspan website can help provide additional help – View Guide
