Your choice of building membranes, also known as sarking, building wraps, vapour barriers, breather foil or underlays, is becoming more important as energy-efficiency and thermal performance requirements increase.
Traditional membranes can increase condensation, mould and structural degradation, particularly when combined with higher levels of insulation and extended air conditioner use.
Manufactured in Germany, Pro Clima’s patented building weather tightness and air tightness systems have been rigorously tested above and beyond local requirements and guarantee superior performance in Australian climates.
And pricing for Pro Clima’s advanced membranes is competitive with other performance membranes on the market.
Weather tightness – external membranes protect your timber framed buildings from wind and rain penetration but remain vapour permeable to allow internally generated moisture to evaporate out of the building structure. When thoroughly installed these membranes offer performance akin to that of a high quality Goretex garment and are a critical second line of defence against the elements as most claddings systems will allow some degree of penetration.
Air tightness & Vapour Check – internal membranes eliminate draughts and ensures that insulation performs to its full potential. In winter, the membrane is closed to prevent inside water vapour from entering the structure causing moisture build up, mould and mildew. In summer, when humidity is more likely to enter the structure from the outside, these membranes open up and facilitate drying towards the inside. This is why they are termed “Smart” or “Intelligent” membranes. Well-insulated homes should all include an internal vapour check system, particularly where flat roof systems are employed.
See how the moisture vapour transmission rate variable (intelligent) membrane works.
Sealing and fixing products – We carry a full range of Pro Clima sealing and fixing components. Tapes in all shapes and sizes, penetration grommets and adhesives allow you to achieve the best possible protection and performance for your building.
