FaĆ§adeshield UV is designed specifically to ensure the building fabric maintains good water resistance and breathability behind open jointed cladding.
Leading research has culminated in a non woven breathable membrane that combines exceptional water resistance and UV resistance with the aesthetically pleasing dark colour to provide a āshadowā appearance within open rainscreen faĆ§ades.
FaĆ§adeshield UV enhances the air tightness of the building whilst reducing the risk of condensation due to itsā high vapour permeability, yet airtight fabric. The product comes with the reassurance of a CE Mark showing the productās fitness for purpose in the faĆ§ade application, making it the obvious choice behind open jointed faĆ§ades.
To protect the membrane from mechanical damage, the joint openings in the faĆ§ade covering have to be less than 50% of the area, and maximum 50mm wide*.
Open jointed faĆ§ades
Easy to cut
Exceptional UV resistance
Air tight yet highly vapour permeable
Highly water resistant
Robust with good tear resistance and tensile strength
FaĆ§adeshield UV is fixed to the supporting construction
mechanically with staples or similar. FaĆ§adeshield UV must
be laid vertically from top to bottom or horizontally with a
minimum overlap of 100 mm. Use FaĆ§adeshield tape when
joining together lengths of FaĆ§adeshield UV or for other
joints where an air tight seal is required. The membrane
must be free from dust and grease and the substrates
must be dry and stable. Apply pressure by hand or roller
to ensure a good bond. The acrylate adhesive used does
not contain resins or other additives which could cause the
adhesive film to become brittle and therefore this product
is extremely resistant to ageing. Battens / back ventilation
must be provided between the FaĆ§adeshield UV and the
external faĆ§ade covering.
