Protect Membranes used for pioneering offsite social housing scheme

Protect’s reflective TF200 Thermo insulating breather membrane has been used throughout a six property social housing project in Banbury on all external walls, to provide enhanced thermal efficiency and deliver a low U-value, contributing to the environmental performance for the overall construction. Cherwell District Council (CDC) required a turnkey solution to provide high quality, affordable housing and turned to offsite construction specialist F1 Modular Limited to design and build the properties, developed on the former site of Banbury Ambulance Station.

Appointed via the LHC’s New Housing and Associated Works (NH1) procurement framework, F1 Modular’s design challenge comprised of manufacturing 26 ensuite rooms with shared facilities and two bedsit properties all contained within six shared houses. Working closely with CDC’s in-house design team, F1 Modular built a series of modules using volumetric construction principles in strict factory controlled and weather-tight conditions.

Delivered on budget and requiring reduced time on site thanks to precision offsite manufacture, the modules were installed with Protect’s BM TRADA certified, TF200 Thermo membrane fixed to the outer structure, providing not only low emissivity but also temporary protection against wind damage, weathering and water penetration, whilst also ensuring the passage of water vapour into the external cavity between the external masonry and the outer wall, significantly reducing the risk of condensation.

Protect’s range of wall, ceiling and floor construction membranes together with its roofing underlays and accessories provides a comprehensive solution to the modular build sector. In particular, Protect construction membrane products with reflective technology help deliver thermal efficiency benefits to meet low target U-values and ensure compliance with relevant Building Regulations.
