Products with an Environmental benefit

Some of our products come with the added benefit of having a reflective aspect of them:

In addition to the above reflective technology oriented products, many of the Novia membranes are generally used within the timber frame market, which has well proven environmental benefits over many other forms of construction. 

All membranes should be installed using our Double Tape Sealing System to ensure they are fully airtight. This is becoming increasingly important with updated British standards, and will go a long way to help to improve the energy efficiency of the building. For further information on sealing the membranes correctly, please visit our tape product information page, or installation information on individual membrane product pages.
