Show more Show less Control Condensation 

Overview

Homes are becoming better insulated to prevent heat loss, helping the environment and lowering heating bills. Better insulation is of course a good thing however there are some challenges.

When you apply internal insulation to an outside wall the wall becomes colder. This creates a danger that warm water vapour from inside the home will get trapped behind the insulation, and as it cools it can condense on and inside the wall fabric in the same way that you get condensation on the surface of single glazed windows. 

This condensation can lead to substantial problems of damp, mould and can lead to rotting of timber elements.


Installation
  • Drylining
  • Metal stud or timber partition

Advantages

  • Reduces condensation.
  • Enables the plasterboard and the metallised membrane to be fixed in one operation.
  • Perfect for internal lining of external facing walls and ceilings.
  • Once mounted with the shiny side to the wall or ceiling the board can be finished in the normal way either by a taping and jointing process or by a plaster skim coat.

Key Specifications
  • Available in either 9.5 mm, 12.5 mm or 15 mm.
  • Available in square and tapered edge finish.
  • Silver metallised film back liner.

“We both love cooking so we put in a new kitchen earlier this year - it’s by far the most popular room in the house. But, with the hob, dishwasher and other appliances it can get hot and humid.

I did some research online and saw that Siniat has a plasterboard designed for the heat and humidity of a kitchen. It made perfect sense to spend a bit more on it’s Moisture Board, as it would last longer and perform better. We didn’t realise that you could buy specialist, performance plasterboard.”
