5. Roofing & Ceiling Thermal Insulation
A combination of the massive and the BestIzol Reflective Insulation should be used for the roofing insulation. This combination of materials will allow you to maintain a perfect thermal insulation that complies with today’s requirements, without increasing the structure’s size, and save you from the installation of additional vapor sealing materials cutting down your construction costs.

You need to pay attention to the correct structure of the under-roofing space and its ventilation which will prevent moisture accumulation in the building structure and assure its durability. You will also need to provide a small gap between the BestIzol Reflective Insulation and the facing material. Lathing should be made with technical gaps to create a “ventilated facade”. A field joint sizing is mandatory for a reliable vapor sealing. In the mentioned example it is better to use the BestIzol THERMAL INSULATOR Type A.
6. Installation on Ceilings
Installation on Ceilings
BestIzol Reflective Insulation is mounted to the lathing that is already pre-attached to the ceiling with a 100-150 mm step. You will also need to provide a small gap between the BestIzol Reflective Insulation and the facing material. It is recommended to use the BestIzol THERMAL INSULATOR Type A (with the foil facing down) (Fig. 5).
