What is air permeable breather membrane?

Air permeable breather membranes allow both air and water vapour to pass through. This provides ventilation, meaning that additional ventilation systems may not be required, and a vapour control layer isn’t required at ceiling level, because vapour and air can pass freely through the membrane.

Air permeable breather membranes can also reduce the build up of condensation within the roof structure, creating a solution to interstitial condensation in pitched roofs. 

Despite allowing water vapour to pass through, air permeable membranes also act as a secondary barrier to the ingress of rain, wind and snow. 

Air permeable breather membranes have been developed to be tear resistant with strong tensile strength, and long lasting to last the life of the roof construction. 

Installation tips for air permeable breather membranes

Air permeable membranes are installed onto the outer side of insulation. To ensure that they are fully functioning whilst also acting as a secondary waterproofing layer, all membrane joints must be fully sealed with heavy duty tapes. As well as ensuring it is fully waterproof, this will also help prevent air leakage.
