Protect membranes perfect for bespoke development

Protect membranes perfect for bespoke development

The Protect range of construction membranes from Building Product Design have been used to complete a bespoke development in Royston, Hertfordshire.

The design of the house specified an airtight and thermal efficient solution to meet Building Regulations. The brief for DGTS was to provide a highly insulated (U-Values for walls/0.11 and floors/0.13) envelope to the main steel frame structure and concrete beam and block floors to both ground and first floor level.

DG Timber Solutions Ltd opted for four specific membranes which when used together would provide all round protection resulting in an exceptionally high standard of air-tightness and vapour control.

The Protect Construction Membranes were chosen for their low emissivity reflective surfaces to enhance thermal performance and for their strength and durability. The membranes were key components for achieving lower U-Values and because of their versatility and flexibility in the whole of the construction design.

Clive Darrington, Director for DG Timber Solutions Ltd, said: "DG Timber Solutions chose Protect Membranes as air-tightness and thermal performance was a key requirement on this project. I had no hesitation in contacting Protect Membranes Ltd to ensure we used the best products available for this particular construction method”.
