Brick Veneer Installation Guide

Simple step by step guide to installing Foilboard® GREEN rigid insulation


Step 1

Foilboard® GREEN rigid insulation panel should be installed to the external face of the studwork, with the anti-glare side facing out. Measure the area you require.

Step 2

Mark the measurements out on the Foilboard® GREEN rigid insulation panel, using the gridlines (registered design) as a guide. Using a straight edge and a sharp blade / knife, cut the rigid panel to size.

Step 3

Position the sheet against the frame. Panels should be butted hard up to any doors, windows and the underside of the roof truss.

Step 4

Fasten the insulation panel to the studwork with the Foilboard® Fasteners using approx. 5-6 per m2, use either a hammer or drill, as required

Step 5

Tape all penetrations, joints and gaps using Foilboard® green tape, to minimise cold / hot air transfer

Foilboard ® Tips

  • Install Foilboard® after the framing, windows and plumbing have been completed but prior to electrical services
  • In windy conditions, start on the windward side of the building first
  • Start with area that can use full sheets (saving time and unnecessary cutting)
  • Start from the top of the build and work down
  • Ensure the Foilboard® panel properly covers the top & bottom plate
  • Panels don’t need to join over studs
  • Fill in remaining sections with smaller off-cuts, to help minimise wastage
