KEY ADVANTAGE OF USING ATTIC NT IN AN ATTIC/ROOF SPACE:

Increases existing insulation performance

THERMO REFLECT ATTIC NT - reflects 97% of radiant heat transfer, protects the installed R-Value of attic insulation by controlling moisture and adds an additional r-5.4* to existing insulation. * ASHRE Handbook: 1997 Fundamentals.

REDUCES ENERGY CONSUMPTION - because THERMO REFLECT ATTIC NT is made of highly reflective metalized aluminum, it creates a low-emissivity (low-e) surface to help reduce heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter.

CHANNELS MOISTURE VAPOR AND ALLOWS FOR BREATHABILITY - when vapor enters the attic from the living space, THERMO REFLECT ATTIC NT helps diffuse the vapor through its breathable membrane. This helps prevent the formation of damaging mold, mildew and wood rot in attic/roof spaces.

 

INSTALLATION METHOD:

1) Exercise caution when working on insecure floors.
Place a floorboard on the attic floor to stand on.
2) Measure the length of rafters from the ridgepole to bottom of the attic floor.
Be sure to leave a 6” gap from the ridge vent to allow for adequate ventilation.
3) Cut Thermo-Reflect Standard NT into the dimensions. For safety reasons, do not perform the cutting on the attic floor; carry this out on a stable floor with adequate space to work.
4) Begin stapling from ridge vent, continue fastening every 6” to attic floor.
