The new Wall Wrap XP from Bradford Insulation (CSR) is designed to improve the performance of wall insulation by
utilising the building cavity airspace on the outside of the building frame.
According to research, the performance of wall insulation improves when
air flow around the insulation is reduced; however, not all wall wrap products
help boost insulation further by contributing up to an additional RT0.5 to the
The new Wall Wrap XP from CSR Bradford provides an outward facing
reflective air-gap R-Value to boost the contribution of an R2.0 wall batt with installed
value of RT2.5 to RT3.0 in a standard brick veneer wall assembly during summer.
When the building stud cavity is filled with wall batt insulation,
conventional inward facing wall wraps are unable to contribute additional
air-gap R-Value to the wall system.
CSR Bradford’s Thermoseal Wall Wrap XP overcomes this problem by using
an outward facing patterned antiglare surface to allow a more energy efficient
wall system to be created by boosting the performance of the wall batt
With the latest product release, CSR Bradford has also made available a
range of Technical Guidance literature on how to model the Thermoseal Wall Wrap
XP in all three energy rating software packages. Published as part of the CSR
Building Science Series, these handy manuals provide clear modelling
instructions for AccuRate, BERsPRO and FirstRate5.
