DuPont Building Innovations is pleased to announce that its innovative membrane DuPont™ Tyvek® FireCurb Housewrap has been awarded an Agrément Certificate by the BBA as “a fire-rated, high-density polyethylene breather membrane for use in timber-frame wall construction.”
DuPont™ Tyvek® FireCurb™ technology sets a new standard for safety: the flame retardant breather membranes. Using new, patented technology, DuPont adds a flame retardant coating to their Tyvek® membranes, improving fire protection for all building types.
Tyvek® roof underlays are a durable, effective alternative to multi-layer breathable roofing felt. They are highly resistant to temperature and UV radiation – as demonstrated in a comprehensive aging testing programme.
DuPont™ Tyvek® UV Facade has now been awarded an Agrément Certificate by the BBA (British Board of Agrément) for use in timber-frame wall construction and as a weather-resistant layer behind rain-screen cladding with open joints.
Comparative construction phase tests show how to stop condensation with the proven performance of DuPont™ Tyvek® membranes and DuPont™ AirGuard® AVCLs.
