We Understand

In the construction sector, the word on everyone’s lips at the moment seems to be offsite. Recent reports show growth in delivery of volumetric and panelised modular systems.

As work continues apace by modular manufacturers and developers to meet challenging Government housebuilding targets, it’s paramount that supply chain partners recognise the expectations in this sector. Not only ensuring a product’s technical performance but understanding that deliveries to the different build stations on the production line are crucial in order to maximise the speed benefits of offsite manufacture, as a way towards ensuring DfMA efficiency.

For over 30 years, Protect Membranes, UK producer and sister company to Glidevale has been supplying construction membranes and roofing underlays for the external building envelope as well as for internal walls, floor cassettes and ceilings. Accredited to STA Assure Gold and a member of the Modular & Portable Build Association (MPBA), our products are delivered from two UK factories and are ideal for volumetric and panelised system construction whether timber frame, CLT, SIPS, light gauge steel or hybrid. Providing technical solutions for MMC across residential and commercial schemes, our products are regularly used to ensure airtightness, manage condensation risk and control movement of vapour within a structure, whilst also retaining thermal efficiency. You don’t need to just take our word for it, click here to see our latest modular build case study where numerous Protect products were specified and installed.
