Fentrim IS 20 comes pre-folded, making application between the rough opening and window easy and efficient. Widths ranging from 75 mm to 300 mm.

The white, single-sided, high-performance acrylic adhesive tape is the optimal solution for permanent air-tight sealing of window and door frames in solid construction on the inside. It has a felt-like texture, making application easy on the hands; this feature also aids in creating a seamless air barrier when applied to itself or air barriers like Majpell.

It’s time to get up close and personal with windows. We usually just focus on the scene we can see through the window, but what looks so simple can actually be very complex.

There are three main sections to the overall anatomy of a window: frames, spacers, and glass. While we often focus on the shiny, pristine look of the clear glass—understanding ALL parts of the window are vital for overall performance and ultimately providing better thermal performance for any house.

Read our recent blog to find out more about the anatomy, link in bio!

The roof has one job: Keep the weather outside. But because weather can be crazy (and seems to be getting crazier), tasking the roof with keeping the peace between inside and out can be more challenging than it appears.

A cool roof is:
» Traditional (most existing buildings likely use this approach)
» Vented
» Utilizes insulation placed above the ceiling to maintain temperatures
» Has an advantage for warmer climates because venting allows heat to escape faster

A warm roof is:
» Usually not ventilated
» Rigid foam insulation is sometimes attached directly over the roof deck
» Heat is contained in the attic space, or there is no attic (in the case of vaulted ceilings or low slope roofs)
» Growing in popularity for new builds
