Air leakage

A look at technically advanced thermal, acoustic and membrane products, including liquid-applied, airtight membranes. Also examines UK and Irish building regulations covering construction membranes.
Explores the benefits of liquid-applied, airtight membranes and how they can be used by developers, house builders and contractors to achieve greater airtightness, presenting a balanced overview of their pros and cons. Also includes guidance on relevant standards and regulatory guidelines.

Intelligent Membranes’ next-generation liquid applied products include the world’s first Passivhaus certified airtight liquid vapour control that can be brush, spray or roll applied, a breathable weatherproof façade membrane that is Class B Fire-compliant, window and façade temporary peelable spray-on protection, and wet room waterproofing.

Duration: 25 minutes, plus Q&A
An overview of UK and Irish building regulations covering construction membranes, particularly with respect to air leakage and reaction to fire. Also discusses the related issues of moisture control and hygrothermal assessment, and the implications of air leakage strategies on both energy efficiency and ‘as designed’ versus ‘as built’ performance.

For nearly 50 years the A Proctor Group has served the construction industry with an extensive portfolio of technically advanced thermal, acoustic and membrane products.
