Controlled ventilation to remove moisture, improve air quality and prevent condensation and mould is vital especially in modern homes with increased airtightness. It is also necessary to ‘future-proof’ projects to meet the evolving requirements of Building Regulations Approved Documents F and L, and BS 5250, Control of Condensation in Buildings.

Managing and improving the airtightness of a building is one of the most effective ways to increase energy efficiency and reduce fuel consumption. Through careful specification and installation of products, air leakage via unwanted draughts can be eliminated, preventing excess heat loss through the external fabric.

Condensation control

As buildings are increasingly designed to be more airtight and energy efficient, it’s important to achieve the correct balance of ventilation. Left unchecked, the build-up of harmful condensation can lead to mould and mildew which not only damages interior decoration but can also aid occuper health and well being.

Thermal efficiency

The considered specification of the building fabric can identify valuable energy-saving opportunities, improving thermal efficiency and lowering carbon emissions. This agreed fabric-first approach will be a core element of the Future Homes Standard, set to come into effect in 2025 and forms part of the NZEB standard.

Damp proofing

Damp proofing is essential to prevent external water penetrating the interior of a building which can lead to structural problems and have a negative effect on the health of occupants. Cavity trays can prevent damp and are required for roofs, walls and flooring to meet Building Regulations, NHBC Standards and BS 8215.
