Vertical Install Tips
 

Vertical Wall Installation
In new constructions, Attic Foil may be installed in sidewalls, either running from the top wall plate down to the foundation or running horizontally along the structure's frame, prior to the installation of the metal sheeting.

  • Measure the length to be applied, then cut a similar length of ATTICSHIELD. Add an inch or two to assure complete coverage at top and bottom.
  • Position first length at corner, wrapping around the corner pole edge and fasten with self-tapping screws or with aluminum foil tape, sufficient to hold in place.
  • Cut a second length and position next to the first length. Butt sides evenly together or slightly overlap. Tape all seams following the instructions found below.
  • When securing bottom, staple insulation to the sill plate or a furring strip secured to the floor.

Taping Tips

  • Use only aluminum foil tape.
  • NEVER USE DUCT TAPE!
  • Use a tape width that is appropriate to the job. Usually, wider tape, is easier to install.
  • Use a squeegee or flat edge to press against the tape to ensure the best adhesion.
  • Always follow the tape manufacturer's recommendations on storage and use.
  • ATTICSHIELD recommends using an acrylic base adhesive tape, wherever moisture or condensation is a concern.
