Novia Reflex Reflective Breather Membrane

Suitable for pitched cold and warm roofs and insulated wall applications.


A high quality, versatile low cost reflective breather membrane. The material complies with both EN 13859-1 (roofs) and 13859-2 (walls). When used in suitable construction, this membrane will deliver improved R and U-values. The product has exceptional water resistance characteristics but still provides high breathability. It is also strong, having excellent tensile and nail tear strength. Novia Reflex also complies with EN13501-1 fire classification grade E.

Features and benefits:

  • Single product for all roofs and walls.
  • Tri-laminate membrane with low emissivity and high reflectivity.
  • Breathable membrane with maximum waterproofing properties – EN 1928 W1.
  • Significantly higher breathability than most other similar reflective products.
  • Grade E (Fire).
  • Install as per BS 5534:2014 + A2 2018 UV guidance.
  • High tensile and nail tear strength.
  • CE compliant to EN 13859-1 (roofs) and EN 13859-2 (walls).
  • Complies with new European CPR rules.
  • Cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
  • Tested for new BS 5534 wind uplift requirements.
