The new executive jet terminal at Al Maktoum International Airport, Dubai South incorporates 16000m2 of the Procheck Premier 500 vapour barrier supplied by the A. Proctor Group Ltd.
The new terminal which will cater exclusively to business jets in the region will feature dedicated customs, immigration, and police services, as well as separate drop-off and lounge areas. Faithful+Gould were the official consultant on the project, with Khansaheb carrying out the main contracting works. Tiger Profiles manufactured and installed the high performing cladding system which incorporates the Procheck Premier 500.
The tough, reinforced, Procheck 500 membrane provides a durable air and vapour tight layer increasing the energy efficiency of the building, ensuring the HVAC systems perform optimally. This reduces condensation risks throughout the high occupancy terminal.
With inbuilt scope for airport expansion, the use of robust materials was critical to ensuring the long term future of the facilities, making the reinforced strength of Procheck Premier 500 the natural choice for vapour control.
For any building to have an energy efficient, healthy, moisture free building envelope there is a clear need to manage the balance of Heat, Air and Moisture movement (HAMM) throughout the building’s life cycle from design, construction, completion and use.
