“AeroBarrier is up to 3x FASTER than traditional sealing methods”
AeroBarrier will take the unpredictability out of your residential and commercial projects by:
Traditional air tightness solutions provide no completion day guarantees, and if building requirements are not met, handovers and sign-offs are delayed at the last hurdle.
AeroBarrierUK guarantees your builds will achieve an air tightness level that’s in line with your intended targets. If you combine this result with your renowned productivity, scheduling and organisation, no costly remedial work will impact your bottom line.
Air leakage accounts for up to 40% of all wasted energy from buildings – with many high street banks offering green mortgages for EPCs of A and B with better interest rates.
AeroBarrierUK’s industry-leading air tightness solution will ensure you stand out from your competition and attract a wider range of prospective homeowners.
Changes to Part L Building Regulations and F mean every new dwelling now requires air tightness testing.
In place of spending excess time, labour, and cost on remedial work to pass this test, simply schedule an AeroBarrierUK install to see and experience first hand how this process will benefit not only your builds but your entire operations.
Once established within your construction schedules, AeroBarrierUK will ensure your buildings’ net zero and low carbon requirements are easy to achieve.
Utilise your high-performance items to their maximum capabilities through lower air leakage, while making smaller heat pumps and solar panels cost-effective additions.
Once released, AeroBarrier’s sealant hangs in suspension inside the building envelope, much like mist on a winter’s morning, and is then drawn to leakage points by the positive pressure from the big building fan located outside.
If there are no leaks, then no sealant is wasted on the area. This means you’re not paying for work that has already been done!
Part of giving an EPC score is calculating how much air leaks through draughts in the building – much like having the heating on in the car with the windows open, leaks through walls, floors and the roof reduce the efficiency of a building, giving a worse EPC score. The AeroBarrier system is able to guarantee and efficiently reduce leakage through the building envelope, improving EPC scores by a significant margin, often up one grade, such as from EPC ‘D’ to ‘C’ or ‘C’ to ‘B’.
Current Building Regulations England, Wales and Northern Ireland) recommend a Designed Air Permeability of 5 as a base to start from. Average airtightness from the ATTMA’s 2020 database suggests block & brick buildings achieve around 4.64, with the best result being concrete frame buildings with an AP50 airtightness of 3.31. See our blog post “What is airtightness?” for a full explanation of the units and measuring!
Best practice for airtightness depends on the type of ventilation used – uncontrolled or controlled. If uncontrolled ventilation is used (trickle vents etc), then the best allowable is an Air Permeability of 3. For controlled ventilation (MVHR or similar), then the building can often be as airtight as possible – down to or below Passivhaus levels if required!
Sealing your future home with AeroBarrierUK and achieving your air tightness level will reduce your energy usage by 40% – reducing your household bills so your home works hard for you, not the other way around.
