CE All products are manufactured in accordance with the CE marking requirements under the Construction Products Regulation. PRODUCT STANDARDS All our products are manufactured in accordance with product standard: BS EN 13162: 2008 and BS EN Evaluation of Conformity. BS EN ISO 9001: 2000 ENVIRONMENT INDOOR AIR QUALITY DURABILITY I SOVER is an ISO 14001:2004 (Environmental Management System) accredited manufacturing facility. This accreditation ensures that all products are manufactured to the stringent standards set out by this management system. EN ISO EMS BS EN ISO 9001: Awarded the highest standard in indoor air quality - Eurofins Gold Label The Gold Certificate means that ISOVER mineral wool is certified as an outstanding material in terms of Indoor Air Quality emissions regulations. Fire Performance Euroclass classification of the product is related to the organic content, which cannot increase with time. Thermal conductivity of mineral wool products does not change with time, experience has shown the fibre structure to be stable and the porosity contains no other gases than atmospheric air. (See std EN13162:2012 Annex ZA,Table ZA.1) Will not accelerate corrosion with steel, copper or aluminium. Will not sustain vermin, nor breed or promote fungi or bacteria. EN ISO EMS

7 Control of Condensation and Ventilation ISOVER complies with BS 5250:2011 Code of practice for control of condensation in buildings & ICP 2:2002 Irish Standard for Tiled and Slated Roof Constructions. These are the industry standards to ensure the building fabric is protected from moisture and condensation damage by ensuring adequate vapour control and ventilation measures are installed. The standards cover: Dealing with high moisture levels and condensation to protecting the building fabric. Addressing the risks associated with excessive humidity in buildings, notably mould growth and condensation. Ensuring a sufficiently permeable roof build up i.e. use of an adequate breathable roofing felt in conjunction with an air-open roof covering (e.g. natural slates or concrete tiles not fibre cement). Recommending Best Practice construction, counter-battens above the roof membrane allows for better drainage rain water and can accommodate ventilation under non-air open coverings where ridge and eaves vents are provided over the felt. ISOVER Pitched Roof Solutions - How do they comply with these industry standards? Protecting Building Fabric - Managing moisture vapour Healthy Indoor Air Quality - dealing with mould growth and condensation Energy Savings - Creating an airtight construction Full ISOVER Solution: High performance mineral wool insulation + airtightness, moisture control. 5 Good practice details: Concrete tiles or natural slates (air-open) Slating laths Counter battens (for roof drainage) LR (breathable) roofing felt Full fill ISOVER Metac insulation Vario KM Duplex or XtraSafe Intelligent Airtightness VCL Composite PIR thermal laminate by others* Fibre cement slates (air-closed) Slating laths Counter battens (provides ventilation space) LR (breathable) roofing felt Full fill ISOVER Metac insulation Vario KM Duplex or XtraSafe Intelligent airtightness VCL Composite PIR thermal laminate by others* Concrete tiles or natural slates (air-open) Slating laths LR (breathable) roofing felt Full fill ISOVER Metac insulation Vario KM Duplex or XtraSafe Intelligent airtightness VCL Composite PIR thermal laminate by others* Concrete tiles or natural slates (air-open) Slating laths LR (breathable) roofing felt Full fill ISOVER Metac insulation Vario KM Duplex or XtraSafe Intelligent airtightness VCL Composite PIR thermal laminate by others* *Maximum R-value = 1/3 of total Roof insulation.

12 Pitched Roof Solutions 10 Installation Pitched Roof Measure depth and width of rafters. Then measure the length and width of the building and multiply twice the span of the rafters by the length of the building. Lift Metac into the attic still in its packaging. Measure and cut the roll to fit rafter width leaving 10mm extra on dimension. Unroll and allow full recovery, use a straight edge and sharp insulation knife. Push and friction fit between rafters, keeping flush with rafters. Ensure eaves ventilation is left where required. Metac can be fully filled* between rafters when used with our Vario XtraSafe membrane installed below the insulation with Gyproc Plasterboard to complete the installation - this provides the safest solution to protect timber rafters from moisture damage. To increase the u Value Isover recommends installing 50 x 50mm counter battens filled with 50mm Metac this allows a service zone without need to pierce airtight membrane. Finally use Gyproc plasterboard applied to counter battens to complete the installation. WANT TO KNOW MORE?
