Tips on moisture barrier films

1. INSTALLATION ON CEILING FRAME
Open the folded film to its full width. Lift and fasten against the ceiling beams so that there is atleast 20 cm of overlap against the outer wall.

2. INSTALLATION ON WALL FRAME
Measure the required length from the roll (leave required overlap). Lift the film against the outer wall so that the overlap is against the ceiling. Attach the film to the frame posts. Also attach around windows and doors. If necessary, seal the seams with a type-approved moisture barrier tape.

3. INSTALLATION ON WOODEN FLOOR FRAME
Attach the moisture barrier film to the floor beams in the same way as to the ceiling. Ensure that there are overlaps.

4. PENETRATIONS
Seal penetrations with type-approved moisture barrier tape.

 

  • FINALLY
    After completing all installations, check that the moisture barrier film is undamaged. If there is damage, tighten it with type-approved tape.

 

  • TO CONSIDER
    Moisture barrier film should not be used on walls and floors in which moisture or water insulation is used (moist/wet rooms). Store moisture barrier film out of direct sunlight.
