Enhanced performance for Park Homes and Luxury Lodges
The superior quality of Reflectashield TF 0.81, a high-performance breather membrane has become an essential part of the construction process of Park Homes and Luxury Lodge manufacturer Lissett Homes.
Reflectashield TF 0.81 is vapour permeable, has low emissivity and an enhanced foil surface designed to improve the thermal resistance of timber and steel frame structures, and is ideally suited to the offsite modular manufacturing process.
Installed on the external face of the timber frame, foil side face out, Reflectashield TF 0.81 has significant added thermal benefits to those offered by traditional breather membranes. The water-resistant, nonwoven polypropylene foil faced laminate has a unique patented three-layer composition, providing excellent breathability, as well as secondary protection to the building during construction, and transportation to site.
Commenting on the selection of Reflectashield TF 0.81 Chris Close, Design/Technical Director for Lissett Homes explains: “Lissett Homes has been producing top quality park homes and lodges for over 35 years and is renowned for providing the highest levels of luxury within the industry. All products chosen for use within the manufacturing of our homes have to be consistent with our customer’s expectations of the highest quality and performance. We have successfully used Reflectashield TF 0.81 for 6 years and in our experience believe it to be the best membrane on the market.”
“Our Park Homes and Lodges are manufactured using a timber frame structure with SIPs to the external walls and internal ceilings. Reflectashield TF 0.81 is applied to the exterior walls, with the addition of Reflectatherm Plus to the internal ceilings providing a high-performance vapour barrier. In all the years of use we have been delighted with the performance of both products, without any issues whatsoever.”
Reflectashield TF 0.81 complies well within the low vapour resistance requirements set out by BS 4016, TRADA and the NHBC.
Reflectatherm Plus is a reflective, high resistance vapour barrier for internal
walls, ceilings and floors and will significantly reduce the risks of condensation, by providing the highest levels of moisture resistance.
