FACTORYLITE 2017-09-21T08:00:39+00:00

Factorylite

A 50mm thick fibreglass insulation bonded on one side to a reinforced kraft/aluminium foil. Manufactured in 1270mm wide rolls with a cover width of 1200mm and in any length from 8 metres up to 25 metres in 100mm increments. Factorylite is the updated and improved version of flexible building insulation. Factorylite is manufactured from high quality noncombustible flexible Glasswool insulation with an inert binder, which makes the product lightweight, safe and resilient. Factorylite is faced on one side with either a reinforced foil, white metalized foil or black metalized foil.

Straining wires, G-clamps, Galvanized hoop irons, Pop rivets, Drill, Heavy duty staple gun, 10 mm wire staples.

1. When installing the blanket in new buildings over purlins ensure that the straining wires are placed 300 mm apart.
2. Affix to the roof apex and unroll the blanket longitudinally taking out any slack and attach to the bottom purlin.
3. To join the blankets fold up the overlapping foil edges and staple, fold the join over and staple again.
4. Precaution to be taken when installing in windy conditions.

1.

  • Install straining wires at 300mm centres. Avoid over tensioning of straining wires to facilitate insulation thickness recovery between purlins.
  • Using the G-clamp affix Factorylite roll at the apex.
  • Unroll the blanket over top of straining wires taking out any slack.
2.

  • Using the G-clamp affix Factorylite roll at the bottom purlin.
3.

  • To join the blankets fold-up the overlapping facing edges and staple. Fold the facing over and staple again
4.

  • Fix the roof sheeting to the purlins through the Factorylite
  • Once Factorylite is fixed in position, replace G-Clamps by fixing hoop iron to top and bottom purlins to hold Factorylite in position.

Note: For insulation of 75mm, 100mm and 135mm thick insulation, spacer blocks should be installed on top of purlin to allow for insulation recovery to nominal thickness. Please consult roof system manufacturer for spacer detail.

5.

  • The spacers allow Factorylite to “pillow out” between the purlins.

Factorylite offers exceptional acoustic properties and enhances indoor environmental quality by absorption of noise.
