The Science of Pro Clima:
Energy, Safety, and the Importance of Vapour Drive in Airtight Construction
Presentation:Airtightness is the key to efficient building. Since 1978 Pro Clima has specialized in developing intelligent materials that ensure weather protection, efficiency, and safety from mold. How can a material stop the air, but allow the vapour to dry? And why is that so important? This presentation covers the risks posed by vapour and condensation and how to mitigate those risks, with an emphasis on working with mass timber and wood fiber board insulation. Environmental sustainability, efficiency, comfort and high performance can work in harmony to produce buildings that last generations.
