Glidevale Protect Façade 5000 Wall Membrane
Application

Suitable for open or ventilated cladding applications. Vertical applications with a wide range of materials including timber, metal, clay and stone.

Description

Protect 5000 Façade is a high performance, hybrid non-woven vapour permeable membrane specifically designed for use in open cladding applications.


Facades with open rainscreen cladding are a popular architectural feature in modern buildings; however, it is essential in this type of construction to ensure that the structure, insulation and secondary protection membranes are UV stable and can withstand all weather conditions.


Features and benefits:

  • Proven long term UV resistance, demonstrated by test.
  • Integral sealing tapes on both edges.
  • Complies with EN 13859-2.
  • Resists the passage of water, windblown snow and dust into the structure.
  • High tear strength, weather resistance and vapour permeability.
  • UV and heat stabilised.
  • Suitable for open or ventilated cladding applications.
  • Vertical applications with a wide range of materials including timber, metal, clay and stone.
  • Excellent nail tear resistance.
  • Lightweight and easy to install.
