Applications for Stamisol Safe One façade breather membrane Class A2
Full fire safety for high-rise buildings and high-risk buildings
Ideal for creative, rear-ventilated façades, PV façades and recladding
For the most demanding applications
Stamisol Safe One Euroclass A2 façade breather membrane behind cladding can be used both for closed and partially open vertical façades with up to 50 mm joints or an open area up to 50 % by meeting stringent fire prevention requirements:
— Apartment blocks higher than 11 meters
— Hospitals, retirement homes, rehab centres
— Schools, nurseries
— Office buildings with high public traffic
— Transport facilities
— Building floor extensions
Recladding of high-rise buildings
At the count in March 2022, there are 483 high‐rise residential buildings identified to have unsafe ACM cladding and will need to be reclad.
Within the UK high-rise building recladding programme there could be an extensive need for replacement of vertical breather waterproof membranes. With the UK building regulations under review the opportunity should be taken now to refit with the new class A2-s1,d0 membrane instead of the current class E or B.
Why risk fire and toxic fumes with a class B, when an Euroclass A2-s1,d0 membrane is now available with Stamisol Safe One?
Stamisol Safe One enhances fire safety concept of Cardiff Transport Interchange building
Our UK distributor ITP has supplied Stamisol Safe One, the UK’s most advanced façade breather membrane, for a key phase at Cardiff Central Square, a flagship development from Rightacres which is delivering new civic and recreational space described as ‘a new gateway to the capital of Wales.’
Designed by Holder Mathias Architects, the Cardiff Transport Interchange building is integral to the connectivity which is fundamental to Rightacre’s vision for Cardiff Central Square. One of the largest developments undertaken in Cardiff city centre, the mixed-use project comprises 500,000 sq ft of new space, including the 14-bay bus interchange with a covered concourse, 318 apartments for the private rented sector and around 90,000 sq ft of contemporary open-plan offices.
ISG have been appointed as the main contractor overseeing the £89m project to construct the Cardiff Transport Interchange. ISG has been working with roofing and façade contractor, Britannia Site Solutions, on the installation of the Stamisol Safe One breather membrane to provide high-performance water repellence combined with high water vapour permeability to control condensation within the building envelope.

ITP Account Manager, Jess Harrison, said: “We are delighted to secure a specification for Stamisol Safe One at this development which is delivering a remarkable transformation of a key strategic site. It has raised the bar for allround performance in breather membranes and the system is increasingly being chosen for high-profile projects like Cardiff Central Square.
Architects, designers, contractors and installers appreciate Stamisol Safe One’s A2 fire safety credentials, which match the high standards required by law for cladding, and its ability to provide those safety standards without compromising the breathability and water resistance which are vital to the core function of a breather membrane.”

Outstanding resistance against high temperatures
Also ideal for photovoltaic façades
To generate energy and support sustainability concepts for buildings, more and more buildings are being equipped with photovoltaic elements in the façade.
Tested for a fire resistance to 250 °C. Stamisol Safe One supports a safe design of the rear ventilation of photovoltaic façades or façade claddings, which are exposed to fire and heat radiation.
