The house “Tighétébhu” was constructed by SIPS Scotland and has been chosen as the winner of the Best SIPs Home in the Build It Awards 2018. The new property is a self-build project commissioned by Keira Proctor, Managing Director of the A. Proctor Group, and designed by Allan Corfield Architects, Dunfermline.
Wraptite was installed as part of the Structural Insulated Panel (SIPs) construction of the home. The use of Wraptite in the construction is said to make a significant contribution to a building’s thermal performance by preventing lateral air movement. It also reportedly provides high vapour permeability in a continuously sealed, self-adhered, airtight membrane.
Alongside Wraptite, additional products were selected from the A.Proctor portfolio, including Reflectatherm Premier a reflective, vapour control layer, and Spacetherm CBS (Cold Bridge Strip), which uses Spacetherm Aerogel insulation encapsulated in polyethelene for use in thermal bridging through a component or element of the structure.
