Attaching plastic attic baffles together

Jeremy M | Posted in Green Building Techniques on

I purchased a bunch of ADO ProVent 14 inch plastic attic baffles.

I’m retro fitting them in between the insulation and roof in a cathedral type setup in a bungalow. So, I need to attach 2 or even 3 together before sliding them in.

I’m thinking of using Tyvek Housewrap 2inch tape, either on one side or both of the attic baffles to attach them to each other before sliding them in place.

I’m open to other products to attach them to each other. Any advice?

I will then staple the sides as best I can from both ends, seal with foam board and expanding foam, etc. That’s all been discussed in another thread, just trying to figure out how to attach the 2 to each other.

I hope this is clear and appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!

    Jeremy,
    Housewrap tape will probably work. Why not try some and see?

    If for some reason the housewrap tape won't stick, you can always use Siga Wigluv (which sticks to almost anything).
