Airtightness in buildings with EPDM

The Energy Performance Norm – EPN – has been included in the structural rules and regulations of the national building code since the end of 1995.  The EPN describes the requirements for the energy performance of a building. By applying a complicated calculation model, the Energy Performance Coefficient – EPC – of a building can be calculated from the EPN. The government is continually adopting a stronger policy with respect to energy efficient construction. Currently, new residential constructions may have a maximum EPC of 0,4. From 2020 all new residential construction and renovations must be energy neutral, i.e. have an EPC of nil.

 

Airtight construction provides an important contribution to the lowering of the EPC. EPDM assists you in meeting this objective!

EPDM STRIPS – AIRTIGHT SOLUTIONS

Our EPDM strips are the best choice for airtight construction. Due to the clean and coarse surface of our EPDM strips, they are suitable for virtually any substrate.

When used in combination with our HERTALAN® EPMD adhesive systems, our EPDM strips are easy and quick to install.  The strips have a wide application, for example DPC applications in cavity walls, around frames and in curtain walls.

 

EPDM offers the perfect solution in curtain wall constructions, by placing EPDM strips between the joint of the prefab facade element and the floor.  An airtight joint around timber and/or aluminium frames can easily be achieved with EPDM strips. Our EPDM strips are a sustainable alternative to lead flashings in cavity wall constructions.

PREFAB EPDM DETAIL SOLUTIONS

Our prefab detail solutions are perfect for prefab constructions. These prefab details are custom made, and are specifically designed to seal the joints around window frames in an airtight and watertight manner. The window seals are made to order and are fitted to the window frames in the joinery factory. The window frame is then quick and easy to install in the facade of the building.
