In order to achieve the best possible results when installing SOLITEX FRONTA QUATTRO wall lining membranes, please consider the following points when planning and implementing your project.
Is it necessary to rear-ventilate the insulating layer?
The high diffusion capacity of pro clima SOLITEX FRONTA QUATTRO means that it is not necessary to rear-ventilate thermal insulation. Pro clima SOLITEX membranes can in all cases be laid directly on the thermal insulation, which means that the thermal insulation can fill the entire depth of the structure.
How should you deal with the high levels of humidity in the building phase?
The highly permeable membranes allow moisture to dry out of the structure quickly and easily. This is advantageous both in the new construction phase and when the building is being used (if moisture penetrates into the structure from the air via diffusion or convection).
The moisture caused by building should always be allowed to escape from the building as rapidly as possible by ventilating well (through open windows). Dryers are recommended in the winter to accelerate the drying process. This prevents the high relative humidity persisting in the long term.
Can water penetrate in the event of driving rain or as a result of the tent effect?
The non-porous SOLITEX FRONTA QUATTRO membrane offers a particularly high tightness to driving rain. The membrane can be laid to cover the entire surface of insulation materials or linings. As a result of the functional film being monolithic and having a multi-layer construction, a tent effect is reliably prevented.
The tent effect describes the phenomenon of waterproof tent covers allowing large quantities of water to come inside in the area where they are supported.
