Procheck 300 from the A. Proctor Group Ltd has been chosen as a high performance vapour control layer for three new apartment buildings on the site of the former Commonwealth Institute, to the south of Holland Park. The Holland Green development is grouped around the proposed new home of the Design Museum, and offers an outstanding space where residents can live amongst modern architecture in harmony with the beauty of a green park landscape.
Global contractor Martifer Metallic Constructions installed 2,200m2, of aluminium curtain walling incorporating Procheck 300, a lightweight, reinforced, polyethylene, vapour control layer.
Procheck 300 is a highly effective vapour control layer, for use within roof and wall constructions to prevent warm, moist air escaping from inside the building and condensing within the insulation. It has long been recognised that the correct management of moisture vapour within buildings is an important aspect of ensuring the longevity of not only the building fabric, but also the health of the occupants.
The use of Procheck 300 reduces the risks of condensation, maintaining the highest level of moisture resistance throughout the apartment buildings, providing protection for many years to come.
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.
