Planning notes

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.
