The flow of water vapour through the fabric of a building is not only a critical for meeting Building Regulations, but it also controls the health of the structure - and often that the people in it as well. Not only that but it additionally affects the thermal insulation. Getting it wrong can be disastrous causing plus mould, rot and decay, getting it right can give you that golden Midas touch!
Traditionally, measuring permeability has been difficult, inaccurate, time consuming and very expensive. Now, however, Versaperm has introduced a highly sensitive instrument to measure it for building materials, barriers and even complete building structures. Not only can it measure the permeability of water vapour but it can measure it against number of other common gases, such as CO2 and oxygen.
Versaperm’s new permeability equipment is fast, sometimes taking just 30 minutes to give accurate and repeatable results. The equipment is highly sensitive, simple to use and provides automated computerised control.
Versaperm equipment is unusual in that it can measure anything from thin films to complete wall structures, including laminates, timber, felts, adhesives, mastics and other sealing or structural materials.
The company also offers a sample testing service and technical consultancy to the building industry.
