Improved airtightness with wraptite – simple!

Rain screen system contractor, Errigal Contracts have confidently installed Wraptite System at the newly constructed student accommodation at Angel Lane, London, thanks to its fire rating, which complies with the ‘loss prevention council’ insurers directive.

Wraptite which was distributed by Charles Tennant of Belfast, is a low-resistance vapour permeable air barrier wall underlay, which is durable, flexible and lightweight. Wraptite Tape is an airtight, tear resistant tape with high vapour permeability for internal and external applications. Used together these components provide a simplified and robust method of achieving improved airtightness.

Wraptite Tape was also used around the 1700 windows which required airtight detailing. Where the membrane interfaces with the windows it was essential that a good seal could be achieved between the PPC finished aluminium windows, the EPDM’s and also (where necessary) the cement particle boards.
