Glidevale Protect VC Foil
Protect VC Foil Ultra is a robust, highly reflective air and vapour control layer (AVCL), offering low emissivity to enhance the thermal performance of walls, ceilings and floors. Suitable for timber, masonry or steel construction, VC Foil Ultra provides strong insulating properties when installed facing into a still airspace. This ensures significant thermal and performance benefits when compared with conventional vapour control materials.
Offering excellent thermal resistance, this AVCL is available with integrated tape to seal the overlaps and ensure radiant heat is reflected back into the structure, minimising absorption and energy transfer. When using integral tape, a super strength adhesive strip is used on the outer edges of the membrane to ensure a fully bonded solution and quick installation. This ensures a more reliable seal than traditional overlap tape. Even when joined without an underlying substrate, this will reduce air leakage and allow mechanical fixings to be installed through the double layered sealing laps. Protect tapes can also be supplied separately to ensure a fully airtight finish.
Produced in the UK of triple ply construction, Protect VC Foil Ultra is supplied with red branding to aid ease of installation on the warm side of the insulation. It can be paired with the Protect TF200 Thermo or Protect Thermo Extreme breather membranes on the cold side of the insulation to deliver optimum cost savings and the ultimate in thermal efficiency.
