Vapour Barrier Liners
Our team of Geomembrane Technicians can also determine whether a separate vapour barrier is required for your system. This depends on the type of construction, intended use and the climate of the location.
If large temperature differences exist between environments, there is potential for condensation of water vapour within the frame. Excess moisture created by water vapour can lead to potentially irreparable structural damage such as rusting and decay. This can be prevented with the installation of a vapour barrier.
At Aeramix, we use the Puraflex geomembrane to ensure the highest standard of vapour barrier protection. Typically, vapour barriers are positioned on the warm side of all infill insulation material. In areas subject to high winds, we recommend ventilation between the cladding and the vapour barrier.
Puraflex is a highly resistant polymeric geomembrane used for vapour barrier control.
