Weathertightness recognised

ISO-Bloco One and Winframer, both from ISO-Chemie – have been BBA certified.

ISO-Bloco One is a multifaceted joint sealing tape that provides weathertightness (resistance to driving rain, airtightness/vapour resistance) and thermal/sound insulation.

The tape was developed by ISO-Chemie to seal window/door frames and address thermal and sound insulation issues. The manufacturer, which produces products for airtightness, weather protection, structural and fire rating sealing, recognised the need to gain independent certification to give building designers confidence when specifying ISO-Bloco One.

The thermally efficient, airtight Winframer thermal insulating and load bearing bracket support system can accommodate at least 200kg/m and can provide an airtight cavity support, BBA certification has confirmed.

Winframer, which is Passivhaus certified and fire rated to up to 30 minutes, is a prefabricated installation frame, manufactured to accommodate cavities up to 250mm. This allows windows to be supported independently from the face of the wall regardless of any external cladding being in place.

Andy Swift, ISO Chemie’s sales and operations manager, said: “BBA certification … clearly demonstrates that ISO Chemie is committed to providing customers with high-quality, high-performance and innovative specification technologies.”
