Product Properties

YBS Airtec Single Bubble, Double Bubble, Single Foil, or Double Foil

Airtec is a multi-layer air bubble film thermo-foil insulation with aluminium bonded to either one face (Airtec-Single) or both faces (Airtec-Double).

The aluminium is coated with polythene to give durability and corrosion resistance, which creates a fully waterproof eco foil insulation system.

Product Advantages

Airtec Bubble Foil Product Applications

Airtec can be used in various ways ...

Airtec-Single is to be used in conjunction with thermal blocks. Airtec-Single is fixed to the inner leaf using special wall ties and YBS retaining Clips

Airtec-Single

  • Airtec-Single is to be used in conjunction with thermal blocks.
  • Airtec-Single is rolled to 25mm x 38mm vertical counter battens, thus creating the required air gap.
  • Once Airtec-Single is in place and joints sealed using Airtec YBS 75mm tape, then plasterboard (internal finish) is applied directly onto the Airtec and fixed directly through to the battens.

Airtec-Double

  • Airtec-Double is to be used in conjunction with medium dense blocks.
  • Airtec-Double is fixed to the blockwork-mounted horizontal counter battens thus creating the required air gap.
  • Once Airtec-Double is in place and joints sealed with Airtec YBS 75mm tape, then the vertical counter battens are fixed at the required centres, ready for direct application of the plasterboard (internal surface).

Airtec used in Cavity with Thermal Blocks.

  • Airtec-Single is to be used in conjunction with thermal blocks.
  • Airtec-Single is fixed to the inner leaf using special wall ties and YBS retaining Clips.

Airtec used in Cavity with all Medium / Dense Blocks

  • Airtec-Double is to be used in conjunction with medium /dense blocks.
  • Airtec-Double and Airtec Double Bubble should be used in conjunction with medium /dense blocks in the centre of the cavity using special wall ties and YBS retaining clips.

Airtec used in Dry Lining Systems with Thermal Blocks.

  • Airtec-Single is to be used in conjunction with thermal blocks.
  • Airtec-Single is rolled to 25mm x 38mm vertical counter battens,thus creating the required air gap.
  • Once Airtec-Single is in place and joints sealed using Airtec YBS75mm tape, then plasterboard (internal finish) is applied directly onto the Airtec and fixed directly through to the battens.

Airtec used in Dry Lining Systems with all Medium / Dense Blocks

  • Airtec-Double is to be used in conjunction with medium / dense blocks.
  • Airtec-Double is fixed to the blockwork - mounted horizontal counter battens thus creating the required air gap.
  • Once Airtec-Double is in place and joints sealed with Airtec YBS75mm tape, then the vertical counter battens are fixed at the required centres, ready for direct application of the plasterboard(internal surface).
  • Airtec Double Bubble should be used in conjunction with medium /dense blocks. It is fixed to the blockwork-mounted
    horizontal counter battens thus creating the required air gap of 25mm. Once the Double Bubble is in place and joints sealed
    with Airtec YBS 75mm tape, then the vertical counter battens are fixed at the required centres, ready for direct application of the
    plasterboard on the internal surface.

Suspended Timber Floor Applications

  • Airtec-Double is a multi-layer foil bubble laminate, coated with polyethylene to provide a corrosion resistant insulation system.
  • Airtec-Double is a high-performance material which acts creating a low emissivity air space below the floor, thus reflecting the heat back.
  • Airtec-Double is a high-performance material which acts creating a low emissivity air space below the floor, thus reflecting the heat back.Airtec-Double can be applied to enhance ‘U’ values in new build or refurbished building projects to meet and exceed current Building Regulations.
  • Airtec-Double is rolled out over the joists Airtec-Double is then nailed in place through the Airtec Saddle Clips to maintain required air gap - 4 per m2
  • The horizontal joints are overlapped by 100mm and are left open to allow any moisture accumulation to dissipate Airtec-Double must be brought up (behind the skirting board) to 75mm The decking is then fixed with screws (at 200mm centres) 37mm into the joist.

Joist End Fitting Recommendations

  • Make 2 x 75-100mm cuts in Airtec, same width as joists.
  • Then make one further cut, same width again, on each side.
  • Fold up flap (A), fold back Flaps (B) and pull Airtec (C) up to meet wall.
  • Fix to wall and fit skirting board over, concealing Airtec.
  • The heat loss in a floor is greater at the exposed perimeter edge of the floor.
  • To calculate the U Value, the exposed perimeter edge to area ratio needs to be worked out e.g.
  • A semi-detached house of 100m2 area, with 3 external walls of 10m each has a perimeter edge to area ratio of 0.3 (i.e. 30m -: 100m2=0.3).
  • The overall thermal transmittance (U Value) of suspended floors should be calculated using BS EN ISO 13370.
