Protect’s reflective TF200 Thermo insulating breather membrane has been chosen for a six property social housing project in Banbury.
This provided enhanced thermal efficiency and delivered a low U-value, contributing to the environmental performance for the overall construction.
F1 Modular’s design challenge comprised of manufacturing 26 ensuite rooms with shared facilities and two bedsit properties all contained within six shared houses. They built a series of modules using volumetric construction principles in strict factory controlled and weather-tight conditions.
The modules were installed with Protect’s BM TRADA certified, TF200 Thermo membrane fixed to the outer structure, providing low emissivity and temporary protection against wind damage, weathering and water penetration.
This ensured the passage of water vapour into the external cavity between the external masonry and the outer wall, significantly reducing the risk of condensation.
