Insulation specialist Actis has launched a new specialised roofing product aimed at the new-build and refurbishment market.
BoostR Hybrid Roof, which has LABC and LABSS registered details and is NHBC, LABC warranty and Premier Guarantee approved, is an evolution of the Boost R Hybrid. The new CE marked product, to be used on the cold side of roofs, eliminates the risk of condensation and prevents moisture entering the building. It contains four special features developed following customer feedback, which set it apart from its sister product, which is now renamed Boost R Hybrid Wall.
The two changes that will make most difference to the user experience are the addition of a lap and the inclusion of built-in adhesive tape. Actis Specification Manager Dan Anson-Hart explained: “With BoostR Hybrid Roof we now have an insulated breather membrane better suited for installation on a roof with an integrated adhesive lap, while BoostR Hybrid Wall is an insulated breather membrane better suited for wall applications with its reflective outer layer.”
Boost R Hybrid Roof is easily distinguished from its sister wall product by its colour. The roof variant is black while Boost R Hybrid Wall is silver. Additionally, Boost R Hybrid Roof comes in larger rolls which cover 15sqm.
