The Wraptite System was installed as an external air barrier and alternative to a traditional standard breather membrane. Wraptite is the only self adhering vapour permeable air barrier certified by the BBA. This approach saves on both the labour and material costs associated with achieving the demands of energy efficiency in buildings.

Stephen Hull, Director of InOpera Facades, commented: “Modelling the intended construction with the use of Wraptite, highlighted the ability to improve airtightness whilst reducing the depth of rainscreen support system and insulation. The use of a standard membrane would have required a greater emphasis on this, therefore increasing the overall component cost of the project. Minor cladding zone increases on a project of this height can have a huge effect.

The Wraptite self-adhesive membrane was applied externally, quickly and easily ensuring a higher quality installation, and a more robust through wall rainscreen cladding system.”
