Wraptite Tape - Premier Inn Leeds

Wraptite Tape has once again delivered total peace of mind to the property owners of a brand new Premier Inn hotel in Leeds, providing a vapour permeable air barrier and maintaining the integrity of the building envelope.

The new 136 bedroom, 9-storey hotel was designed by architects Cartwright Pickard, and forms part of the exciting Whitehall Riverside Scheme in the West End of Leeds city centre.

Wraptite Tape was installed as a superior solution to seal the joints on the rigid insulation board behind the rainscreen cladding. Typically an aluminium coated Butyl adhesive tape would be used to seal joints, openings and penetrations. Whilst providing a seal against air leakage, these tapes may not only prevent air, but also prevent the movement of moisture vapour, leading to potential problems and damage to the boards underneath over time.

The high vapour permeability characteristics of Wraptite Tape mean that crucially, it allows moisture vapour to escape the structure easily, removing the need for an additional breather membrane saving time and cost. Wraptite Tape was selected by national contractor Topek from Glasgow who carried out the installation of the insulation and cladding for the new hotel. Full condensation risk analysis reports were prepared as part of the specification process.

Wraptite Tape is an assured effective airtight barrier, and because of its high vapour permeability it also allows damp sheathing to dry quickly, and moisture vapour to escape. Thus ensuring good indoor air quality and reducing the likelihood of mould, mildew, condensation, timber distortion and metal corrosion, protecting the essential fabric of buildings 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.
