Factory fitting made easier by new 3M wide airtightness membrane

Protect Membranes, UK producer of construction and roofing membranes, has introduced a new 3m wide variant of its popular Protect BarriAir membrane, designed for ease of installation within a factory environment and to support the rapid rise in offsite construction.

Protect BarriAir is a high performance air barrier with vapour control qualities, suitable for use internally on walls, floors and ceilings in multiple construction types such as timber frame, pre-cast concrete and traditional, brick and block construction.   Tough, durable and with high tear resistance, the membrane provides an airtight system when installed with sealed laps, helping to dramatically reduce heat loss through the building fabric and ensuring strict airtightness levels can be met.

John Mellor, Product Manager of Protect Membranes commented, Following the continued success of our existing BarriAir product, our instantly recognisable yellow membrane is well known to deliver added value to many new build projects, including the more challenging Passivhaus developments.  The availability of the 3m wide BarriAir option will now mean that factory produced structures which are delivered to site as closed panels can achieve overall time saving benefits when the membrane is installed.”

Protect BarriAir is CE marked, produced in the UK and available ex-stock in 3m or 1.5m widths and 50m lengths, the latter being supplied with integral tape.
