DuPont™ Tyvek® FireCurb® Housewrap (1500mm x 50m) is a fire retardant membrane that self extinguishes when ignited. It acts as a lightweight barrier against moisture and condensation whilst simultaneously improving the fire resistance and safety of the building.

DuPont™ Tyvek® FireCurb® Housewrap is a cutting edge product for timber frame constructions. It is applied to OSB board to create a membrane which protects the building from moisture and condensation, while at the same time dramatically improving the fire resistant capabilities of a property. DuPont™ Tyvek® FireCurb® Housewrap’s flame retardant membrane slows down the spread of fire due to its self-extinguishing properties. This can increase evacuation time and contribute towards compliance of building regulations.

Why use DuPont™ Tyvek® FireCurb® Housewrap

DuPont™ Tyvek® FireCurb® Housewrap contributes to the air-tightness of a building by enhancing the performance of insulation. Moisture and condensation hugely impacts the efficiency of insulating materials, DuPont™ Tyvek® FireCurb® Housewrap therefore acts as a supporting barrier against ingress of moisture, allowing the building to breathe and the insulation system to function optimally. DuPont™ Tyvek® FireCurb® Housewrap is typically installed onto the external side of the insulation material or integrated in the wall structure system. It can be used as a solution for ventilated facades, typically those over 18m in height or where it is situated within 1m of the boundary. The added advantage of the DuPont™ Tyvek® FireCurb® Housewrap is how much it will dramatically improve the fire resistance of your wall structures.
