Ampack receives new BBA certs
Leading airtightness and vapour control product manufacturer Ampack’s BBA certification now includes the company’s external systems — Ampatop Protecta, Ampatop Protecta plus, Ampatop Aero and Ampatop Aero plus.
The range of associated Ampack tapes is also listed as ancillary parts in the certificate. The certificates are the second and third in a new range of certification for Ampack following the grant of BBA certification for airtight systems.
The entire Ampack range comes with a unique ten-year warranty. Ampack’s guarantee covers not just the replacement cost of materials but also any associated damages and the cost of any repairs, which makes it unique in the market. This warranty is particularly pertinent as architects and engineers assume greater levels of responsibility when certifying. The use of the Ampack system can essentially provide security over the building fabric.
Established in 1946, Swiss supplier Ampack is a market leader in building envelope protection products, and was reportedly the first company to commercially produce vapour checks. As a result Ampack has products installed and tested for over 35 years. The company’s product range is distributed throughout the UK and Ireland via sustainable building product supplier Partel.
“Ampack has been at the forefront of building protection systems for decades and has developed a name that stands for high quality proven products,” said Partel director Hugh Whiriskey. Ampack offer one of the largest ranges of airtight and windtight systems including a range of butyl, nail seal, UV stable tapes and liquid weldable roof membrane Ampatop Seal, which has a liquid weldable surface that can be installed down to a minimum roof slope of five degrees.
