Application

Supafil® Frame is used in both new and existing structures as a Blow-In-Blanket System for closed cavity applications in which ventilation is not required.

Blow-in-Blanket® System (BIBS) is a patented process consisting of unbonded glass mineral wool blown in behind Supafil® Veil which is a special netting material used in framed applications.

Description

Knauf Insulation Supafil® Frame is a glass mineral blowing wool insulation, developed for use in on-site and off-site frame construction. It offers a range of thermal performance options (depending on its install density in a required application) and consistent coverage. Supafil® Frame is non-combustible and achieves the best possible Euroclass A1 reaction to fire classification.
