The A. Proctor Group, experts at solving condensation, air tightness and energy efficiency problems in buildings, has launched a new innovative, high-performance, fire-resistant vapour control layer which is air- and vapour-tight, thereby improving the energy efficiency and reducing the risk of condensation within residential and commercial buildings.
Procheck® A2 is designed to protect the building fabric from the potential risks of condensation, whilst providing the added benefit of serving as an effective air-tight barrier. The unique design consists of laminated glass fibre and foil protected by a clear lacquer. It is this clear surface, which provides Procheck® A2 with the added benefit of a low emissivity surface, which when used with a service cavity, can enhance the overall performance of the building fabric, as well as ensuring a high fire protection performance, with an A2-sl,d0 fire classification.
The importance of best practice management of moisture vapour within buildings is crucial in ensuring the longevity of the building fabric, and also in the health of the occupants. As buildings become increasingly better insulated, more airtight, and more energy-efficient, management of moisture at the design stage becomes critical. The introduction of Procheck® A2 will ensure a high level of protection throughout the building’s lifespan.
