What is the ISOVER Vario® System?

The ISOVER Vario System is an intelligent moisture control and airtightness system. This moisture control and airtightness system comprises of a range of intelligent membranes, tapes and sealant.

It adapts to the climate and protects your building against moisture and dampness, inside and out. Airtightness also protects the building fabric against damage, helping to maintain its appearance and extending the building’s life.

Why do we need Moisture Control and Airtightness?

A building is subject to several unpredictable and tough weather constraints. The challenge is to provide an efficient and sustainable structure adapted to the surrounding environment, while ensuring comfort and lasting use for its occupants. One of the keys to success is the creation of a perfect building envelope, using the synergy of an effective insulation solution and a complete airtightness

An airtightness system paired with a moisture management system enhances the indoor air quality and the preservation of a building. This is achieved by controlling air, water and water vapour flows especially around thermal bridges, electrical outlets, plumbing penetrations, lighting fixtures, etc. It also improves the efficiency of heating and ventilation systems. Ventilation provided by irregular opening of windows and doors is not sufficient.

Key Benefits for Building Owners

understanding

Energy efficiency

Climate change is one of the biggest challenges we face. How can we change our habits concerning energy consumption? First steps are to use sustainable technologies and to save energy.

regulations

Thermal comfort

The interior environment of buildings has become increasingly important. Providing protection from cold and heat is not enough – we also expect fresh air and excellent thermal comfort.

understanding

Building protection

One of the main reasons for producing an airtight building is to protect the structure against dampness originating from air leakages. The following two processes lead to the transmission of water vapour.

regulations

Health

Healthy building environments are achieved by a high level of comfort, through a controlled fresh air exchange. How can an airtight building shell with controlled ventilation achieve this aim?
