In addition, to tackle humidity, insulation needs to be protected from condensation appearing at the dew-point where a too-high relative humidity will condensate at a low temperature.
Knauf Insulation can help. We produce a wide range of breathable membranes that plug the leaks and gaps of roofs and lofts as well as protect insulation from damage caused by badly managed humidity.
‘Homeseal is a low-cost win-win’
“Our Homeseal range offers a variety of solutions that are tailormade for every specific building application from permeable membranes for rooms with a low generation of humidity, such as bedrooms, and very low permeable membrane solutions for high humidity rooms such as bathrooms to hard-wearing membranes to protect exterior roofs and lofts,” says Benoît.
“Homeseal protects homes from losing heat, prevents humidity, saves energy, ensures proper ventilation and provides an effective shield against wind-washing. When it comes to making a home more comfortable and maximising energy-saving performance, Homeseal is low-cost win-win that can be easily installed with no mess and minimal disruption.”
Homeseal materials are specially selected and developed for maximum performance, tested rigorously and meet all quality standards. In addition, Homeseal accessories such as our LDS Solimur sealant or our Soliplan and Solifit tapes have been custom-designed to work together as a system to ensure maximum efficiency. Equally importantly, every system element is designed to last.
