WEBINAR - Air and vapour control layer (AVCL) products – Essential to durable, long term performance in buildings
With the trend towards greater energy efficiency in buildings, as driven by Building Regulations, air tightness plays a vital role in meeting these standards. While in the past little or no attention was paid to airtightness, in recent years it has come become clear how much air tightness can contribute to the energy balance of a building. Air tightness protects the insulation against air movement and humidity, both of which have a negative impact on thermal performance, and it has been demonstrated that poor airtightness can be responsible for up to 40% of heat loss from buildings.
