TLX Silver Step 1




Prior to installation it’s important to ensure you are installing in a clean, dry environment that is well ventilated. We strongly advise that you use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) listed above.  

Step 1

Simply open the top of the bag and roll out the TLX Silver onto an even surface ready for cutting into shape.


Top Tip: Each bag is fitted with a installation instruction booklet explaining further details.

Step 2

Before installing TLX Silver, you will need to install a suitable insulation between the rafters. This will help create your U-value.


Top Tip: Celotex Insulation is our recommended option, please ensure the board meets your project requirements.

Step 3

Measure the surface area and cut the TLX Silver to your specific measurements ensuring it covers the area sufficiently.


Top Tip: Use a stanley knife to cut the multifoil and remember to allow extra TLX to ensure the area is covered.


Step 4

Once it is cut to size, roll out the TLX Silver multifoil and place under the rafter ensuring it sits in place correctly. 

Step 5

Secure the TLX Silver multifoil to the rafters using staples.

Step 6

Please ensure that a gap is left between the TLX Silver and the secondary insulation.

Step 7

When conjoining two parts of TLX Silver, ensure that one TLX is overlapped by the other by at least 50mm.


Top Tip: Remember to account for the overlap prior to cutting TLX Silver to size.  

Step 8

Tape over any overlap using a standard foil tape to give an air tight seal and ensure thermal efficiency is achieved.


Top Tip: 4Trade insulation foil tape is recommended.

Step 9

Secure the TLX Silver in with cross battens using a nail gun or hammer. Space the cross battens either 400mm or 600mm.


Top Tip: Its recommended to use at least 38mm deep battens.
