Novia Black Pro 146GSM Roof and Wall Breather
Our heaviest weight standard tri-laminate roof and wall breather
Novia Black Pro Breather Membrane is a premium quality, versatile, heavyweight breather membrane for all pitched cold and warm roofs, and insulated wall applications. The material meets EN 13859-1 for pitched roofing and EN 13859-2 for walls. Novia Black Pro has excellent water resistance but still provides high breathability; it is strong and also complies with EN 13501-1 fire classification grade E. This is our heaviest Novia Black Pro Breather Membrane with a weight of 146GSM. The product is completely black on one side, and white on the reverse, with no text or images on either side, except a 150mm overlap line.
Novia Black Pro Breather Membrane has been introduced to comply with new mandatory CE marking requirements under the 2013 Construction Products Regulations. Under this new European directive, all products covered by a current hEN (harmonised European Norm) must comply with the new standard. Third party accreditation is no longer sufficient. Any affected products manufactured after the implementation date in July 2013 must conform to the new CPR standard.

Our Double Sided Adhesive Tape is used on the laps of the breather membrane, with the Breather Membrane Lap Tape is used to complete the seal, keeping down any excess membrane which may get caught in the wind.
