How to install Granric fiberglass insulation

Additionally, it’s the same kind of product as aerolite. So the installation of the product is exactly the same. You can watch our videos on how to install insulation products, or you can follow the directions below…

1) Wooden plank to prevent damage to the ceiling, tape measure and wood saw. Use the wooden plank to move around in the ceiling. Do not step onto the ceiling board, as this will damage the board or you may fall through the ceiling.

2) Measure the distance between roof trusses with the measuring tape. Whilst Flexiwool is still in its wrapping. Cut the product to the measured width with the wood saw, to fit between the trusses.

3) Now roll out the Flexiwool between the roof trusses, onto your ceiling board. Flexiwool should run underneath wiring.

4) To prevent overheating of light fittings, cut around any down lights. To prevent pipes freezing in winter, use off-cuts to wrap around the pipes.

Architectural Specification

Furthermore, installation should be done strictly in accordance with the manufacturer’s details and specifications. In a completed roof and ceiling system, install Granric insulation between roof trusses and over brandering/purlins.
