Welcome to the information website for the Airstop range of tapes, membranes, adhesives and sealants. At Airstop we believe that the most important element of any structure is the external shell. Only by building this right can you truly achieve an energy efficient, comfortable and durable structure. What’s the point in bolting on renewable’s when the structure is not designed to maximize their benefits. Pound for pound you will get a better return for your money by ensuring proper insulation, air-tightness, and the elimination of cold-bridging. By building right and building tight you can offer your clients a better built home, and take advantage of the benefits that air-tightness brings in regards to your energy ratings .
Airstop allows you to build right and build tight by providing a range of products specifically designed to achieve the desired result. Using alternative solutions that are not designed for the purpose of air-tightness can lead to problems in the short to medium term as they lose their effectiveness and sealing properties due to settlement and movement within the building and elements. Airstop products are designed and manufactured to cater for this, providing a guaranteed system that will stand the test of time.
Our goal is to make it easy to achieve high levels of airtightness in any type of build. Here you will find simple to follow instructions on how to confidently select, specify and install products from the comprehensive Airstop range to seal many common, and uncommon, construction details.
While it isn't possible to describe every detail, we hope you will see that sometimes the key to getting a good seal is the creative use of product, as when we use our Isowindow F12 product to seal a deep corrugated composite roof panel.
