ISO BLOCO ONE CONTROL
The Bloomberg HQ building in London is a £1.3bn award-winning office complex which has used sealing tape technology from ISO-CHEMIE. Designed by Foster and Partners and recipient of the RIBA Stirling Prize, the building is considered to be the most sustainable office building in the world.
An unspecified volume of ISO BLOCO ONE CONTROL was installed in the building, providing long-term protection against wind-blown rain ingress, as well as providing effective acoustic and thermal seals.
Up to 70% cost savings can be achieved using ISO-CHEMIE’s tapes, which enable installers to seal windows from inside the building and avoid the need to use time-consuming and costly scaffolding and ladders among other external access systems.
The tapes offer a single product ‘fit and forget’ solution for fast and effective sealing based around the European RAL principles of three level sealing. The inside seal area is more airtight than the external one, allowing any trapped moisture inside the joint, or within the wall, to escape outwards rather than into the building.
Andy Swift, ISO-CHEMIE’s national sales manager, said: "Developers of buildings like the Bloomberg office want new ways to deliver low carbon structures, which use sustainable technologies. Our tapes support this, delivering measurable airtight, acoustic and thermal sealing properties."
