Actis & SuperQuilt Insulation Comparison

YBS SuperQuilt Multifoil Insulation and Actis Triso Super 10+ are commonly used for the same applications.

Some of the most popular applications for both products are pitched roofs, flat roofs and timber frames.

Please see below list of benefits of using SuperQuilt instead of Actis Triso Super 10+.

  • SuperQuilt is fully LABC, BDA & BBA Certified in the UK
  • Actis does not have any UK certification - Unable to back up thermal claims
  • SuperQuilt is 14% higher performing based on even testing methods – See below
  • SuperQuilt is 39% more cost effective
  • SuperQuilt has a true aluminium outer layer compared to a Met Pet Plastic
  • Higher Vapour Resistance Value – SuperQuilt is a higher performing VCL
  • SuperQuilt is approved for floor applications unlike Triso
  • SuperQuilt is UK Manufactured, Actis is not

Actis claims their product is equivalent to 210mm Mineral Wool, compared to SuperQuilt being equivalent to 110mm. This claim however cannot be supported as Triso Super 10+ is not certified to UK standards.

In today’s current market, SuperQuilt is tested by a method called “Hotbox” testing. The benefit of having hotbox testing is that it allows SuperQuilt to be approved by LABC (Local Authority Building Control).

Actis still use a slightly older testing method which is called “Insitu” testing. Actis has a thermal resistance of 5.25 when tested using this method, giving the equivalence of 210mm Mineral Wool.

SuperQuilt has previously been tested via “Insitu” methods. SuperQuilt had an R-value of 6.1 using this method, equivalent to 270mm Mineral Wool.

When compared using the same testing methods, SuperQuilt is higher performing by 14% despite being 39% lower cost!
