Create a spec with our thermal roofing calculator.

Bradford Anticon is foil-faced insulation blanket specifically designed for temperature & noise control in homes and buildings with metal roofs.

It is comprised of a glasswool blanket adhered to an impermeable reinforced reflective foil facing. This reduces radiant heat entering a home during summer, and helps prevent condensation in winter.

FM Approved Anticon FC

FM Approved per Approval Standard 4880

Bradford Anticon FC is a premium range specifically developed and tested to meet specific fire performance to FM Approvals Standard 4880, for Class 1 Fire Rating, beyond meeting minimum Deemed-to‑Satisfy requirements.

Bradford Anticon Blanket consists of a bulk insulation blanket adhered to Light Duty (LD) Reflective Foil Laminate (RFL) facing. The bulk insulation blanket is manufactured by spinning molten glass, containing up to 65% recycled content, into fine wool like fibres. These are bonded together using plant-based binders. The RFL facing typically extends 150mm beyond one longitudinal edge of the blanket to provide an overlap for sealing the blankets.

Applications

Anticon FC Blanket is designed to provide efficient acoustic and thermal insulation as well as condensation control under metal deck, fibre cement and concrete roofs in residential or commercial applications. Anticon FC can also substantially reduce reverberant noise within a building.

Typical applications include;

  • Residential and commercial metal clad roofs
  • Commercial and industrial fibre cement roofs e.g. offices, shopping centres and warehouses
  • Bushfire Attack Level (BAL) – The insulation blanket is ideally suited to sealing ember entry points at ridges, valleys and fascia’s.

The key performance benefits of Bradford Anticon FC

  • FM Approved: FM approved to Class 1 Fire Rating Class Number 4880
  • Acoustic insulation: Reduce unwanted airborne noise such as aircraft or traffic and also provide a damping effect to reduce impact noise such as rain or hail
  • Thermal insulation: Slow the heat gain in summer and reduce the loss of warmth from inside a building in winter
  • Condensation control: Reduce the risk of the occurrence of condensation formation under your metal roof which can cause damage to plasterboard ceilings and mould growth
  • Fire performance: Meets the BAL (Bushfire Attack Level) requirement for metal clad roofs in bushfire areas.
  • By reducing temperature variation, Anticon assists in minimising ‘metal creeping noises’ which can occur in buildings with metal components
