TradeSelect ThermalBrane 4

Flexible Reflective Insulation

Trade Select™ ThermalBrane 4™ is an Extra Heavy Duty three-in-one reflective insulation, thermal break and medium vapour barrier. Trade Select™ ThermalBrane 4™ is suitable for use in roof, wall and floor applications. Designed to manage heat gain and heat loss, Trade Select™ ThermalBrane 4™ offers superior thermal performance to conventional insulation, and reduces thermal bridging and conductivity between building elements.

ThermalBrane 4™ has been designed as the economical choice of product in the range and can be installed in sheds, walls and roof applications. At 4mm it is the thinnest, most exible and compact of the product range, making it ideal for use in tight spaces or cavities.

Product Advantages

  • Made with high-density XPE foam.
  • Contributes a reflective R-value when installed adjacent to an air cavity.
  • Effective in dampening noise.
  • Water resistant, fire resistant.
  • Fibre-free and non-allergenic.
  • Rigorously tested by independent recognised accredited laboratories in compliance with AS/NZS 4859.1:2002/Amdt 1:2006 to ensure all product claims are met.

Installation Instructions

Trade Select™ ThermalBrane 4™ is not designed to withstand prolonged direct exposure to the elements. Accordingly, the outer construction envelope should be installed without delay. Aluminium foil should not come into contact with wet concrete or mortar, as the aluminium is susceptible to alkali corrosion. If installed within 500 metres of the sea, or in a non-residential building where foil surfaces may be exposed to a corrosive atmosphere (including agricultural sheds), foil surfaces should face an enclosed, un-vented air space. To ensure optimum thermal insulation performance, as well as satisfactory durability, a 25 mm air space adjacent to each side of the product is recommended.
