- Cutting the insulation:
- Installing the insulation:
Before installing the insulation, it’s essential to ensure that the cavity wall is clean and free from any debris or protrusions that could affect the insulation’s performance. Any existing insulation should be removed to make way for the new installation.
Knauf Dritherm Ultimate Cavity Slab 32 – 85mm comes in pre-cut sizes that fit standard cavity walls. However, if necessary, the insulation can be cut using a sharp knife or saw to fit any irregular spaces.
The insulation is designed to be friction-fitted into the cavity wall. Start by placing the insulation at the bottom of the cavity, ensuring that it fits snugly. Then work your way up, filling the cavity with insulation until it is completely filled. Ensure that the insulation is flush with the surface of the inner leaf.
Once the insulation is installed, it’s important to ensure that the cavity is sealed to prevent any air leakage. Seal any gaps or holes with a suitable sealant or tape. Finally, replace any removed skirting boards or architraves.
It’s worth noting that proper safety precautions should be taken when handling insulation, including wearing protective clothing, gloves, and goggles. If you’re not confident in carrying out the installation yourself, it’s best to hire a professional contractor to ensure that the insulation is installed correctly and safely.
