Wraptite-SA has been supplied to the recent new development at Drums of Park, Cornhill, Aberdeenshire. The self-adhering Wraptite-SA enabled Sylvan Stuart of Insch, Aberdeenshire to easily install the membrane onto the walls compared to traditional methods. The self-adhesive qualities meant that savings were made by eliminating the need for flashings and other sealants around the windows and doors.
Wraptite-SA airtight membrane prevents lateral air movement enhancing the buildings thermal performance. It also provides high vapour permeability in a continuously sealed, self-adhered, airtight membrane. In this instance, a result of better than 2.5m3/m2/hr was achieved.
The membrane fully bonds (no mechanical attachment) to almost any substrate for improved airtightness and ease of installation, offering labour savings to any project.
Wraptite-SA’s high vapour permeability allows damp sheathing to dry quickly and moisture vapour to escape. This ensures good indoor air quality and reduces the likelihood of mould, mildew, condensation, timber distortion and metal corrosion.
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.
