STOUR HOMES CHOOSES ISOVER’S NEW SMART
AIRTIGHTNESS AND MOISTURE MANAGEMENT
Stour Homes, a family-run
based in Dorset, has specified
Vario XtraSafe – Isover’s
new ‘smart’ airtightness
and moisture management
system – for an ambitious
residential project in Wiltshire.
The 1,200m premium timber frame property is being built with both
airtightness and moisture management in mind.
To confront issues around moisture, airtightness and energy e iciency, Stour
chose to use a range of high-performance solutions created by Isover – a leading
UK insulation manufacturer.
The Vario XtraSafe system, with its ground-breaking smart-membrane, was
specified instead of the more traditionally used polythene vapour control layers.
Vario XtraSafe is made from a breathable nylon layer with variable resistivity
properties. The solution is considered to be three times stronger than polythene
and has an Sd value ranging from 0.3m - 25m. This means it can actively adapt
to the moisture conditions within the building fabric, providing the best possible
protection for the building structure throughout the year.
When it’s cold and damp outside, and warm and moist inside, the relative
humidity in a wall is low, so Vario’s pores will close to keep water vapour away.
Conversely, When it’s warmer outside, the membrane will open its pores to allow
any accumulated water vapour to flow out, so the structure can dry.
