The Proctor Wraptite-SA air tight membrane was used as part of the refurbishment of the Sunshine Mosque dome in Melbourne, Australia.
The Sunshine Mosque is an Ottoman/Turkish-style mosque in Sunshine, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia. This complex structure comprises of seventeen domes, a minaret, and a courtyard.
The existing concrete dome roofs were leaking and needed to be re-roofed in Zinc. As part of this refurbishment, a watertight underlay and separation layer was required to go under the VM Zinc Plus.
Our local Proctor membrane distributor, Dynamic Composite Technologies, recommended the use of Wraptite-SA. Wraptite-SA was an ideal solution to the water ingress problems on such a complex domed roof. As a result, the domes have been restored to their former glory with minimum disruption.
Wraptite-SA combines the best properties of a vapour permeable membrane and an air-barrier in one innovative, affordable self-adhering product.
The membrane fully bonds (no mechanical attachment) to almost any substrate for air tightness and ease of installation, requiring minimal use of sealants or tapes. Installation is quick and easy, offering labour savings to any project.
Wraptite-SA air-tight membrane prevents lateral air movement enhancing the buildings thermal performance. It also provides high vapour permeability in a continuously sealed, self-adhered, air-tight membrane.
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.
