Insulation specialist Actis has launched a new specialised roofing product aimed at the new-build and refurbishment market.
BoostR Hybrid Roof, which has LABC and LABSS registered details and is NHBC, LABC warranty and Premier Guarantee approved, is an evolution of its Boost R Hybrid — an insulating breather membrane with a strong thermal performance.
The new CE marked product, to be used on the cold side of roofs, eliminates the risk of condensation and prevents moisture entering the building. It contains four special features developed following customer feedback. The two changes which will make most difference to the user experience are the addition of a lap and the inclusion of built in adhesive tape.
Actis Specification Manager Dan Anson-Hart explained: “With BoostR Hybrid Roof we now have an insulated breather membrane better suited for installation on a roof with an integrated adhesive lap, while BoostR Hybrid Wall is an insulated breather membrane better suited for wall applications with its reflective outer layer.
“Those who loved the original Boost R in roofs, but found the lack of adhesive overlap an issue are delighted that they’re going to be able to get the same impressive thermal efficiency and value for money – with the added benefit of no hassle.”
Boost R Hybrid Roof is easily distinguished from its sister wall product by its colour. The roof variant is black while Boost R Hybrid Wall is silver. Additionally, Boost R Hybrid Roof comes in larger rolls which cover 15sqm.
