Application

Supafil® Frame is a Glass Mineral Blowing Wool, designed for use in either on-site or offsite timber frame construction.


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

Supafil® Frame is a Glass Mineral Blowing Wool, designed for use in either on-site or offsite timber frame construction, that offers excellent thermal performance. It is non-combustible with the best possible Euroclass A1 reaction to fire classification.


Supafil® Veil is a translucent netting which is stapled to the timber frame to create a cavity into which Supafil® Frame insulation is blown.


Features and benefits:

  • Good thermal performance.
  • Non-combustible A1 Euroclass Reaction to Fire classification.
  • Awarded the DECLARE 'Red List Free' label. Allows product transparency disclosure that identifies where a product comes from, what it's made of, and where it goes at the end of its life.
  • Multi-purpose product which can insulate a variety of timber frame applications, maximising efficiency.
  • Provides intimate contact between frames, offering a full-fill solution for a wide range of stud depths, centres and void shapes.
  • Can be installed either on-site or off-site, using our innovative Supafil Frame System.
  • Only one product needed which can insulate all timber frame stud applications.

Supafil® Frame is manufactured in accordance with BS EN 14064, BS EN ISO 50001 Energy Management Systems, ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems, and ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems, as certified by TÜV Nord. All our Glass Mineral Wool products have been awarded the DECLARE ‘Red List Free’ label. Having the ‘Red List Free’ label means that there are no ingredients in the product that are on the red list - including formaldehyde or phenol.


Gaps, voids and penetrations:

Supafil® Frame fills all gaps and voids around service penetrations such as water pipes and any other obstructions or unusual design details, ensuring thermal and acoustic performance is maintained. Supafil® Frame allows quicker and more efficient filling of wide cavities where multiple layers of conventional slabs would normally be installed. Supafil® Frame saves installation time by minimising the steps needed to fully insulate hard to reach areas.
