Sepa® solar is Klober’s new reflective air barrier and vapour control layer. With a vapour resistance of over 500 MNsg, it far exceeds the requirements set out in BS9250 (Code of Practice for design of the airtightness of ceilings in pitched roofs). Its reflective surface reduces heat loss through the roof. Moreover, when combined with other products in Klober’s airtightness range it will help you minimise energy loss

Before Sepa® solar is installed, check the moisture content of the timbers is less than 20%. Fix on the warm side of the insulation and rafters, with the reflective surface facing the interior and a services void. At either edge of the structure, leave a 150mm overlap to allow Wallint® solar to be sealed to adjoining walls. Roll-out with a horizontal headlap of 150mm. Fix to rafters/ceiling joists using non-corrosive fixings eg staples. Ensure that laps are sealed using a tape eg Permo® TR, that it is sealed at all abutments/junctions using either tape eg Permo® TR or Pasto® sealant. If parging, first turn Sepa® solar down the face of the wall, fix plaster stop bead on top of Sepa® solar and then parge on top. Any holes or tears in the air barrier/vapour control layer should be repaired with Permo®
TR tape. Where pipes pass through use Klober’s Pipe Sealing
Collar and tape edges to Sepa® solar to achieve an airtight seal.
Sepa® solar should cover the entire internal timber frame area of the rooms in the roof and, where applicable, link with vapour control layer in the wall below to form a continuous air barrier. For refurbishment projects, Sepa® solar should be laid vertically either from ridge to eaves or vice versa. This is to allow small sections of the roof to be worked on. Joins should be taped using Permo® TR and sealed at the eaves using Pasto® or Permo® TR
