Any ideas please?

I'm dry lining a ceiling and want to put 25mm polystyrene sheet between the battens for insulation prior to fixing the plasterboard.

What I'm not sure of is how to fix the polystyrene so it stays in situ while I fix the plasterboard.

Any. help gratefully received. Thanks

My thought would be to cut the polystyrene sheet a bit bigger than the battens so it will push in and stay there. Having said that, it depends on batten spacing etc.

Offer the Polystyrene up to the space (one edge inside) then cut to fit, with Stanley knife, slightly wider than the space using the next batten as a guide. That should allow just stuffing it into place, if you make a mistake and cut it shorter just cut a sliver off the main sheet and make up the gap.
Much the same as Richard says. No adhesives should be used.

Yep, Agree. Cut it fractionally oversize, and friction is your friend.
