LanaTerm Wool insulation should be applied in a place where it would not get wet by rain or parts of the sanitary installation of a structure as well as away from a high heat source (560oC) or flame. Thermal insulation LanaTerm should be applied without being exposed to compression loads while LanaTerm Acoustic acoustic insulation can be exposed to compression loads with no issue.
The installation of LanaTerm rolls or batts is done without protective equipment because it’s a 100% natural product that is not allergenic and does not harm the human body.
In the case of a wooden structure, the LanaTerm Insulation is applied by sealing the edge of the insulation rolls or batts into the wooden structure with metal staples. The insulation is to be stretched sideways slightly, after which the staples are applied to the inside of the wood structure on each side at intervals of max. 20cm from top to bottom.
In the case of a metal structure, the insulation LanaTerm is inserted between the metal profiles and is attached to the plaster board, OSB, etc. mounted on the metallic frame by applying staples on panels at intervals of 30-40cm. The recommendation is that the insulation be opened slightly at the point where the staple is to be applied and only 50% of the thickness of the insulation is to be used to avoid complete compression at that particular point.
On the ceiling, the mechanical installation is done by anchoring the insulation with a wire diagonally on the insulation board, thus trapping it inside the cavity, and anchoring the wire itself in the ceiling with metal staples.
When installing LanaTerm by gluing it with adhesives to the inside wall of the cavity, the spreading of the glue on the whole contact surface should be avoided, to allow the insulation to breathe.
LanaTerm is a 100% natural product. Failing to respect the installation conditions and instructions, the product is at risk to lose some of its qualities by failing to comply with its technical data sheet and risking ineffective insulation of the structures on which it is applied.
