Novia Reflex Reflective Roof and Wall Breather
Our high specification dual approved reflective breather membrane
Novia Reflex is a high quality, versatile, reflective breather membrane for all pitched cold and warm roofs and insulated wall applications. The product is installed in roofs either as an ordinary breather membrane or alternatively it can be installed upside down, using an unventilated low emissivity cavity. When used in suitable constructions the membrane will deliver improved R and μ values (examples given were calculated for Novia by the BRE). The product has excellent water resistance but still provides high breathability; it is strong yet lightweight and also complies with EN 13501-1 fire classification grade E. This product is fully CE approved and CPR compliant.
Novia Reflex is suitable for use in BS 5534 wind uplift applications. Following successful tests, Novia Reflex can be used in zones 1 and 2 without additional tapes, and in zones 1-5 using our Breather Membrane lap tape.
Novia Reflex is available attached to insulation via RoofReflex® - click here for the product details.
