DuPont™ Tyvek® and DuPont™ AirGuard® tick all the right boxes for a new modular office block development by Extraspace Solutions
Extraspace Solutions specialises in meeting the challenging demands of modern construction, especially when space is at a premium, by offering versatile, cost-effective and highly practical modular systems. One innovative new project is a 20 million Euro office development for Pramerica Systems Ireland Ltd in Donegal, consisting of 300 hi-tech modules – with the potential to increase this number if needed 420.
Each three-storey block is 51m x 24m and each steel-frame module measures 12.2m x 2.9m. Designed to achieve specifications above regulations, each unit aims for maximum efficiency and benefits from the proven performance of DuPont building membranes. The advanced breather membrane Tyvek® Soft is used as the external weather proofing shield (and has been specially branded with the Extraspace Solutions logo) while the high-performance air and vapour control layer DuPont™ AirGuard® Reflective enhances the airtightness of the structure.
DuPont™ AirGuard® was chosen, according to Stevin Tedstone of Extraspace, “For its overall performance as well as being the only reflective AVCL with both a warranty and a BBA certificate.
We have long experience of working with the DuPont™ Tyvek® which gives us peace of mind. What’s more, when architects and professionals know we are using DuPont membranes, it ticks all the boxes as it guarantees all the specs and paperwork data will be in place.”
