The impressive performance of Wraptite Tape, which provides a vapour permeable air barrier has been successfully used on a new care home in the historic city of Edinburgh.
The Queensferry Care Home project comprises 60 en-suite bedrooms for the elderly with associated facilities and parking, on behalf of client Barchester Healthcare. The design and build partner is Yeoman McAllister architects in conjunction with main contractor McLaughlin and Harvey.
Wraptite Tape was selected by specialist construction company Veitchi Group who carried out the installation of the steel structure for the new building. Metsec Metframe, a pre panelised lightweight steel structure was built off-site and pre-clad with rigid insulation board. Wraptite Tape was installed as a superior solution to seal the joints on the rigid insulation board within the steel frame.
