Smart sealed

Improved levels of acoustic and energy insulation will be provided following the specification of ISO-Chemie’s sealing tape for windows at a new mixed used development in central London.

More than 1,000m of ISO Bloco 600 tape and 300m of Bloco ONE tape was installed to support the conversion of unused office space to a high-class entertainment venue at 6 Grafton Street in Mayfair, providing long-term protection against wind-blown rain ingress as well as an effective acoustic and thermal seal.

The self-adhesive Bloco ONE, which uses so-called ‘smart’ foam technology impregnated with different substances to create a measurable U-value as low as 0.6w/m2k, can offer excellent thermal insulation and can contribute to acoustic sound reduction by 63dB.

The sealant tape is part of a fenestration installation package that includes Schüco Jansen windows, completed by architectural metalwork engineers Martec Engineering.

Andy Swift, sales and operations manager for ISO-Chemie, said: “Developers increasingly want smarter ways to deliver their construction and building projects, which use sustainable technologies. Our tapes support this, delivering measurable airtight, acoustic and thermal sealing properties.”

The tapes were supplied by JIT Industrial Products, the Motherwell-based independent ISO Chemie stockist.
