Airtightness tape

Recommended Posts

If anyone interested I have a 15% off code for airtightness tapes with Passive house systems. The code is 15%aocx, not sure how long this code lasts but I have only just ordered and it worked for me. I have the rep's contact details so if it does not work let me know and I will contact him.

The discount  code still works.

 

Not impressed by a £24 delivery charge for 10 rolls of tape, so cancelled the order.

 

Any suggestions when to buy air tightness tape without ridiculous   delivery charges ?

What tape did you order..?? I had 10 rolls of tape at around 100mm or so and it was £12 delivery. Still the cheapest by a long way.

Gerband sticks to anything ... brick, block, timber, uPVC, EPS, fingers, hair.... 

 

I really rated it - used the split stuff for the windows and tbh you can’t get it off now ..!

Ebay. A German supplier on there regularly sells bundles of 20 rolls or Tescon Vana for way below what any UK outlet sells it for.

 

e.g. this one works out about £15 per roll delivered https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/pro-Clima-Tescon-Vana-Klebeband-Profi-VE-20-Stuck/261425541408?epid=1104754860&hash=item3cde2d3120:g:pI4AAOxy3HJTJhWC

@TriassicI ordered 30 rolls in January and they charged £10 + vat for delivery. Works very well on OSB.

Thanks.  I wish someone had told me that a year ago when I was buying mine. :ph34r:

Tescon is 30m so only 6p a metre more,  can you claim the vat back from the ebay purchase?

I hope the 15% discount code is still working, need another 20 rolls.

Can you plaster over the split tape (the green stuff) or do you have to use a different tape? @Declan52 you probably can advise also

Plaster or board and plaster..? 

 

Plastering direct needs the "fluffy" tape that has the fibre backing. For boards we have just bonded the boards in the reveals to to the exposed inner block and screwed to the cavity closer with DryFix FR behind the boards and they are solid.

They do a pink hairy type split tape. It would be similar to what old type scrim cloth was. It has half the tape with an adhesive section that you can stick to windows, doors, flooring, plasterboard and the other side you use a flexible adhesive to stick this to the wall.

http://passivehousesystems.ie/product/gerband-fortax-6400-airtight-sealant/

The company use to be called clean energy Ireland when I bought from them but they have rebranded to the passive House systems. 

Very good to deal with. I sent an email with what I needed and then a cheque and the goods arrived within a week.

This makes it sound much more interesting than the subject matter is.

Yeah I was annoyed by that too, i even rung them about it and they claimed thats how much it costs them, needless to say I didn't order via them. I got it from these... http://munsterhrv.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=123

 

The other brand i've used is airstop (https://www.airstop.co.uk/airstop-tapes-c1775), both products seems to do the job well, if anything the airstop stuff is even more sticky but doesn't seem quite as thick.
