Novia Black+ Pro 150GSM Roof and Wall Breather

Our heaviest weight 150gsm breather membrane, with excellent water resistance which meets EN 1928 W1 Class.

Product Overview

Novia® Black+ Pro Roof and Wall Breather Membrane is a premium quality, heavy weight, strong and versatile breather membrane for all pitched cold and warm roofs, as well as 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 also complies with EN 13501-1 Fire Classification E. The product is completely black on one side, grey on the reverse, with no text or images, except for a 150mm overlap line.

Novia® Black+ Pro meets the requirements for UKCA marking, originally introduced under the 2013 Construction Products Regulations with CE marking. Under this 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. This has been adapted to UKCA following the UK departure from the EU.

Novia® Black+ Pro is suitable for use in BS 5534 wind uplift applications. Following successful tests, Novia® Black+ Pro can be used with a ≤ 345mm batten in zones 1-4 without additional tapes, and in zones 1-5 using our Breather Membrane Lap Tape.

For a material with higher fire rating, please see our Novia FR Breather Membrane which is Class B-s1,d0 fire rated.

Novia Black+ Pro can be found on NBS Chorus and NBS Source software packages. Full information can be found for NBS specification with the table below. The links will open a pop up window with full specification information.
