Glidevale Protect publishes Environmental Product Declarations for key ranges

  • 24 Nov 2023

Leading UK building products manufacturer Glidevale Protect has published third party, independently verified Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for three of its construction wall membranes to assist specifiers by providing clear sustainability and life cycle assessment data.

Created by One Click LCA and verified by the EPD Hub in accordance with EN 15804+A2 & ISO 14025 / ISO 21930, the product and factory specific EPDs do not contain average calculations and have been assessed cradle to gate with modules A1-A3, C1-C4 and D, with the life cycle analysis (LCA) published in accordance with the reference standards ISO 14040/14044.

Detailing key environment impact data including global warming potential (GWP) calculations as well as total energy and water use, the EPDs form a transparent analysis of each product’s carbon footprint to give full reassurance in specification.

Continued commitment

The development of EPDs for Protect TF200 Thermo, Protect VC Foil Ultra and Protect TF200 demonstrates Glidevale Protect’s continued commitment to and investment in sustainability. Protect TF200 Thermo is a reflective breather membrane for external walls which can enhance thermal performance and Protect VC Foil Ultra, a reflective air and vapour control layer (AVCL), offers low emissivity to enhance the thermal performance of internal walls, ceilings and floors.

Both can be used together as a system to help maximise the energy efficiency rating of a building and control condensation risk. Protect TF200 is a high performance breather membrane, offering protection to external walls and minimising the risk of interstitial condensation.

Detailed EPDs help specifiers to understand a product’s sustainability credentials when working to more stringent regulations such as Building Regulations Part L as well as whole building environmental assessment standards like BREEAM. EPDs quantifiably demonstrate

the environmental impact of a product and data is independently verified and certified in line with internationally recognised standards, focused on the product’s whole life cycle.
