Humidity reduction and superior thermal insulation properties

Humidity in a buildings’ fabric can be damaging in several ways, affecting wood and concrete and weakening the integrity of the building over time. Waterproofing façades can dramatically reduce humidity across windows and doors.

Vented façades can significantly improve the thermal insulation properties of commercial buildings and can contribute to energy consumption and ultimately cost savings over the long-term.


Using a good quality, long-lasting material, such as EPDM, firmly ticks the sustainability box. This cold-applied membrane is industry renowned for longevity and performance, giving the project integrity throughout.

EPDM membrane also has an excellent reputation for UV and temperature resistance. Stable from -45 to 130°C, EPDM can be installed in a wide range of geographical locations and is suitable for areas that suffer from extreme temperature fluctuations.
