Reflectashield TF 0.81 film enhances thermal performance

  • 4 Nov 2014

The membrane enhances the thermal performance of timber and steel frame structures

The high performance membrane provides a high level of emissivity and breathability, as well as secondary protection to the building when it is being constructed.

Installed on the external face of the timber frame with the foil side facing out, the product has similar qualities to that of a traditional breather membrane but with added thermal benefits.

RD-compliant Profloor Dynamic Battens

Profloor Dynamic Battens that are RD-compliant FFT1, FFT3 and FFT80, were also used during the project to provide impact and airborne sound insulation.

The dual foam enables minor irregularities in the surface of the sub-floor to be addressed, saving time and money on costly maintenance services.

The site has been developed by Dove Jeffrey Homes and incorporates 43 new residential properties consisting of affordable family houses and ten apartments.

Reflectashield TF 0.81 has been re-tested at the National Physics Laboratory, producing an uplift of the claimed thermal performance to an R-Value of 0.81m2K/W.

The product complies with current vapour resistance requirements set out by BS 4016 TRADA and the NHBC, with legislation requiring a breather membrane to have a vapour resistance no greater than 0.60 MNs/g.
