Context

Iso-Chemie’s high-performance foam tapes have been specified to provide effective sealing of small tolerance gaps around new windows installed at a 30-room hotel development in London’s East End.

Product supplied

The ISO-BLOCO ONE tape was used to seal dozens of heritage-style aluminium windows to a 0.8W/M2k rating with added 63dB of sound reduction at the striking Whitechapel Hotel, which stands on the site of a former textile factory close to Brick Lane’s galleries and Asian restaurants.

The quick and easy-to-use self-adhesive tape accommodated external frame apertures, which varied in size from 2 to 8mm, ensuring that the hotel’s industrial appearance is retained.

Installation of the new windows, which featured small profiles specifically designed to replicate the appearance of the previous Crittall steel framed ones, was undertaken by Suffolk-based GS Installations as part of a multi million pound overhaul of the site.

As well as providing a high performance and long lasting airtight solution, the tape ensures that the windows will remain weather proof to 1000 Pa – the equivalent to 130mph of constant driving rain.

Outcome

Liam Scopes, Joint Director of GS Installations Ltd, said: “ISO-CHEMIE’s tape is an excellent product, meeting the requirements for effective sealing of small tolerances."

“It also enables us to stay ahead of the competition and undoubtedly enhances the overall look of this eye-catching hotel.”

Up to 70% cost savings can be achieved using the ISO-BLOCO ONE foam tape because it enables installers to seal windows from inside the building, avoiding the need to use time-consuming and costly external access systems like scaffolding and ladders, in any weather.
