Preparing for your installation
You’ve selected the best insulation type for your project, and are now ready to install it. Your next step is to read Thermal Insulation Association of Canada (TIAC)’s best practices guide for pipe and duct insulation, then find the manufacturer’s installation instructions, which are readily available either on the package labelling and/or the manufacturers web site. The information in the instructions will cover all health and safety advice, tooling, and associated materials needed. If the work requires a building permit, then the relevant code requirements must also be met. If any of the code and manufacturer instructions differ, follow the more stringent of the two.
Consult the manufacturers’ instructions for more information, or visit their websites.
