Gwen Beeken, Managing Director at Osco Homes, describes how Wraptite was key to achieving a quality airtightness solution suited to offsite construction

“Although an essential requirement is that the homes had to meet Building Regulations, both the client and OSCO Homes were keen to exceed this. The use of high-quality panels, with a high-performance membrane, built in a factory and assembled on-site, enables OSCO Homes to achieve a better airtightness and higher level of insulation, helping to reduce heating bills. The ease with which Wraptite achieves a high level of airtightness and its ability to be joined across panels was key to its selection.

“Applying it in a factory environment, we can be confident of the quality of the installation, and the specially provided Wraptite Tape means making the joints onsite is simple

The Wraptite air barrier system offers a safer and simplified membrane system. It provides a fully self-adhered vapour permeable air barrier certified by the BBA and combines the critical properties of vapour permeability and airtightness in one selfadhering membrane. The self-adhesive membrane is easily applied in the factory, bonded externally to the substrate, and ensures that the membrane is held firmly in place, even during transportation, maintaining the quality of the system from installation to build and completion.
