For over 50 years, DuPont has been a pioneer in fire safety and in 2013 DuPont introduced its Tyvek® FireCurb® Housewrap breather membrane for buildings. As building regulations tighten following the Grenfell tragedy – and as most fires begin inside buildings – DuPont has since developed an airtight vapour control layer for the internal walls and ceilings in its high performance AirGuard® range, offering similarly advanced, non-toxic, fire-resistance with proven efficacy.
Whilst Tyvek® FireCurb® Housewrap forms a weather-protective, vapour-open lining behind ventilated façades, the new DuPont™ AirGuard® A2 fire retardant Airtight Vapour Control Layer offers energy-saving, moisture management and improved interior air quality.
Now, developers, planners and architects can have the confidence in a complete membrane and tape solution for durably enhanced fire safety in both the exterior and interior fabric of a building.
DuPont™ AirGuard® A2 FR is truly fire-retardant and independently rated as Class A2. Along with Tyvek® 2060M Metallised Tape, DuPont now offers a complete A2 classified membrane and sealing system that surpasses existing regulations.
