A breather membrane is a water-resistant material which allows water vapour to pass through when there is a difference in humidity on opposite sides. Breather membranes are used on the outside of frame walls under the exterior finish material.
Breather membranes perform three functions:
- to shed moisture and restrict any rain water which penetrates past the exterior finish from reaching the wood wall;
- to perform as a breather material allowing any moisture within the wall cavity to escape by diffusion through the membrane to the exterior; and
- to act as a wind barrier to restrict movement of air through the wall.
Powerlon Flameguard and Powerlon SupaPerm 100 are house wrap breathers suitable of walls in timber frame construction. SupaPerm SP100 is also suitable as an underlay for profiled metal/standing seam roof applications.
Powerlon UltraPerm are universal breather membranes suitable for timber frame walls and all roof types.
Full installation instructions are supplied with each roll of Powerlon wall breather membranes.
Powerlon Tapes, including Penetration Tape, FR Aluminium Tape and Double-sided Jointing Tape, complement the Powerlon Breather Membrane range for professional installation. See Powerlon Accessories.
