Solid constructions with reliable airtightness

Solid constructions with reliable airtightness - Intro

In solid constructions, reliable airtight sealing can be achieved by a continuous internal lining of plaster. For effective application, all constructional and service leaks must be sealed:

  • Seal potential air paths caused by exposed studs and gaps between bricks.
  • Close off window and door openings in the external wall with a plaster skim.
  • Plaster walls completely, from floor to ceiling.
  • Where different materials adjoin, such as in the tile flap, gable wall and ashlar facing, all surfaces must be plastered, including channels, fuse boxes etc.
  • Infill channels cut for mains supplies with mortar to prevent air currents in the wall.
