Tyvek® offers unrestricted application when tested in accordance with BS5534:2014

Tyvek® Supro, Supor Plus and Enercor® offer unrestricted application when tested in accordance with BS5534:2014 - and with no counter battens required in any zone.

Tyvek® is compliant to New BS5534 Annex A

Tyvek® is compliant to New BS5534 Annex A

Tyvek® Supro, Supro Plus & Enercor® have been subjected to the test procedures concerning wind uplift (BS 5534), performed well and are fit for purpose at maximum batten gauge in all categorized wind zones (1-5) when installed in a pitched roof system in line with both our BBA certificate 08/4548 and our own technical guidance.

Underlayment: Quality and Thickness of Functional Layers Are Critical

Underlayment: Quality and Thickness of Functional Layers Are Critical

Tyvek® membranes are proven to resist ageing better than most common multi-layer underlayments. Even after prolonged exposure to UV radiation and heat, Tyvek® underlayment stays watertight and provides superior condensation control.

What Makes a Tyvek® Watertight Breather Membrane Unique?

What Makes a Tyvek® Watertight Breather Membrane Unique?

DuPont™ Tyvek® is a watertight membrane that not only optimises energy efficiency in all building types, but also provides proven durability and long-term protection against external climatic conditions and the effects of condensation.

CE Compliant Membranes

CE Compliant Membranes

All DuPont breather membranes, including Tyvek® and AirGuard®, are fully CE compliant, and carry the CE marking required throughout Europe.

The Tyvek® Evolution Story

The Tyvek® Evolution Story

DuPont invented Tyvek® in 1955 and has introduced a stream of construction innovations since then to raise the bar in the industry, a process we call Tyvek® Evolution.

Vapour Control Membrane Protection

Vapour Control Membrane Protection

An effective air and vapour control layer (AVCL) offers key internal building protection, helping to manage moisture and the indoor climate. DuPont™ AirGuard® AVCLs are the optimal solution.
