New timber frame wall insulation
WALLTITE® is applied directly between the studs onto the OSB. The stud depth should be sufficient to meet the recommended elemental U-value. Unwanted air leakage and air infiltration is minimised and sound attenuation improved. Polyurethane foams are hypo allergenic and so contain no fibres or dust and no noxious vapours. Mechanical and electrical services can be fixed between the foam and the plasterboard. WALLTITE® is very quick to install minimising on overhead costs, site storage and waste.
