Pro Clima Tescon Tapes - Passive House Insulation Series (part 9)
Wednesday 2nd September 2020
To ensure a durable airtightness level is attained on any project, it is essential to correctly use a suitable airtightness tape at critical junctions.
In this, the 9th video in my Passive House Insulation Series, I outline the properties of Pro Clima tapes used in my new build Passive House. Tescon Profil is used for window and door sealing and Tescon Vana is used to seal overlaps and other junctions. I also provide tips on how to attain a reliable seal at critical junctions.
