When you reach your limits with photovoltaics

Especially against the backdrop of climate change, the generation of renewable energy by means of PV is of particular importance. After the age of roof applications, many experts are already talking about an age of façade applications. Here, breathable façade membranes very quickly reach their limits because they are exposed to very, very high temperatures for which they are in no way designed.

PV + Stamisol Safe One = Safe
So play it safe with the temperature-resistant Stamisol Safe One façade membrane, a special glass fibre fabric with an elastomer coating. This creates a safe construction for the rear ventilation level of photovoltaic façades and comes with a comprehensive 10-year guarantee.

BSI 8670: The New BSI Flex

BSI is setting new standards for compliance and competence within the construction building industry
The new BSI Flex "Built environment – Overarching framework for competence of individuals - Specification“ is relating to the development of a new BSI number standard for individuals involved in the installation and construction of buildings. Following the release of Dame Judith Hackitt’s Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety it concluded that a number of actions was needed to improve, sustain and assure building safety competence. The core element being around competence and compliance of individuals and their understanding of meeting compliance of new and existing regulations.

These have now been identified in the BSI Flex draft released for consultation and amendment in the spring 2021. This will have a major impact on the buildings industry. If an individual does not comply or demonstrate competence then they could be liable under the draft Building Safety Bill which has set out planned new penalties of up to two years imprisonment for breaching updated safety regulations.

Check out what will be important for you, especially at Annex B, pages 18 ff „Fire safety in higher-risk buildings“

HACKITT SET TO REWARD ‘EARLY ADOPTERS’

The speech of Dame Judith Hackitt at the BESA National Conference at 6th Nov focus on three important points:
1. First and foremost the buildings must be safe. Build it once, build it right and it will stay that way. Especially for buildings over 18m.
2. Do not wait, do the right thing now. Be an early adopter.
3. A step change in approaches to safety management and control is required.
See in this context, how Stamisol Safe One facade breather membrane will enhance fire safety of your vertical outer wall system that should meet
Euroclass A2 - especially for high-rise and high-risk buildings.
