Air Barrier Construction


At the edge of the historic center of Delft, hard work is being done on the new construction project PoortMeesters. This sturdy residential building consists of linked apartments and townhouses. The eye-catchers of the building are the two gates that give access to the largest climate-neutral courtyard garden in the Netherlands.

Various air barrier solutions are applied using Liquid Rubber HBS200. For example, all window frames are applied with a layer Liquid Rubber HBS200 to create an air barrier. The gaps between the concrete elements are also provided with a layer Liquid Rubber. A flexible back filling is placed in the recess. After the back filling has been cut flat, the gaps are sprayed airless with Liquid Rubber.
