Frameshield 100

Frameshield 100

Product Description

Frameshield 100 is a spunbonded, polypropylene material developed primarily as a breather membrane for use in timber - frame wall construction. Applied in the factory during manufacture or on site, Frameshield 100 affords effective protection of timber frames during construction against wind-driven rain, snow and dust. Once completed, the high water vapour permeability of Frameshield 100 allows the controlled escape of vapour from within the timber frame whilst restricting the ingress of rain and moisture.

Key Features

  • Frameshield 100 conforms to BS 4016 as per the BBA Certificate.
  • Frameshield 100 has a vapour resistance factor of 0.1 MNs/g which is less than the maximum permitted in NHBC requirements.
  • BBA Aproved (Certificate number: 89/2313)


  • Frameshield 100 is produced by the continuous extrusion of polypropylene fibres which are then spun and bonded together with a combination of heat and pressure.
  • Installed in accordance with the NHBC requirements, Frameshield 100 will comply with all current UK. Building Regulations.
  • Bespoke colours available (dependent on quantities).
  • Manufactured in the UK.
