Application

For use as a Vapour Control Layer Membrane (VCL) for the following substrates:

  • Galvanized Steel SFS
  • Concrete or similar porous surfaces.
  • Aluminum.
  • Gypsum Sheathing Board.
  • Calcium Silicate Boards.
  • Cement basis or similar.
  • EPDM rubber.
  • Metallic substrates

Description

BBA Certificate 21/5951 (Product Sheet 1)


High quality and multifunctional weatherproofing airtight vapour barrier manufactured from fibreglass technology with an aluminium foil, developed to achieve a fire reaction Class A1 as membrane and Class A2-s1,d0 as system according to EN 13501-1. The final fire classification of the system was obtained for Effisus Vapour FR membrane with Effisus accessories (tapes and adhesives).


The product should be located on the internal face (warm side) of the back wall and fixed on the top of vertical Galvanized Steel SFS Studs. The weatherproofing design of AVCL membrane systems should be done in detail and on a project-by-project basis.


Features and benefits:

  • BBA Certificate 21/5951 (Product Sheet 1)
  • Fire protection: Class A1 as membrane and Class A2-s1,d0 as system according to EN 13501-1 (system: Effisus Vapour FR membrane with Effisus fixing and sealing accessories).
  • Fire protection: Class A2-s1, d0 according to EN 13501-1 (Effisus Vapour FR membrane tested with Effisus fixing and sealing accessories).
  • Multifunction: 100% water, vapour and airtight.
  • Resistant: High mechanical resistance with resistance to thermal variations.
  • Complete system: Complete range of accessories for any project needed. Possibility of combining with an A2 Breather FR membrane to have a full envelope fire-rated system.
  • Energy efficiency: The airtightness of the membrane improves the air quality in the building interior, thermal efficiency, durability of all the facade components and avoids condensation risk.
  • In accordance with LEED v4.1, EMICODE, BREEAM International (Exemplary Level) and Indoor Air Comfort GOLD – Eurofins.
