When specifying fire-rated membranes in cladding remediation projects, it is important to consider other critical performance factors such as vapour permeability, airtightness and UV stability.
When specifying materials which become part of an external wall on buildings with a storey at least 11 m above ground level we must consider if they need to achieve class A2-s1,d0 or above.
Last year, England and Wales both introduced new building regulations that tightened the limiting air permeability for new buildings from 10 m3/hr.m2 to 8 m3/hr.m2, along with other key changes to how airtightness is regulated.
Why are high quality membranes so critical in a passive house, and how exactly are they tested by the PHI to ensure their quality?
