This Webinar provided by James Brackenreed-Johnston of Proctor Group discusses technically advanced façade design solutions using the Wraptite self-adhered vapour permeable air barrier. The use of this system allows reduced air leakage to be achieved more easily, enabling these lower rates to be incorporated in SAP and SBEM calculations at the design stage. This boost to energy performance can enable reductions in building footprint, or allow for switching of insulation types while retaining element depths. 

Topics covered:

  • Exceeding current airtightness regulations and improving design values
  • Regulation compliance in high rise applications. Complies with use on buildings of high rise and over 18m under Part B amendments          made in November 2018, Membranes need to be Class B,s3,d0 or better, with Wraptite at Class B,sI,d0
  • Less EPDM over complete envelope - limiting calorific values
  • Hygro-thermal Modelling (WUFI) showing the difference of not using a VCL within some constructions benefits the buildings future
  • Improving airtightness may allow you to change thickness or type of insulation used when modelled through SAP or SBEM
  • Balancing Heat, Air and Noisture movement in the building envelope
  • Detail design for junctions and interfaces
  • BBA Certification and independent BRE testing and compliance statements

CPD: 1 hour
