AeroBarrier is an innovative automated envelope sealing technology that aims to make energy efficient and performance homebuilding attainable for all builders. Certified as GreenGuard Gold and Built Green, our sealing technology safely and effectively seals the entire building, eliminating the problems and shortcomings of traditional construction techniques and replacing manual labour with an automated, computer-driven, precision-controlled operation.
Enter BC Energy Step Code. Beginning 2019, municipalities throughout BC will be mandating strict requirements for airtightness. Are you ready for this?
What does this mean to you as a builder?
Builders – you must build homes with minimum airtightness requirements of 2.5ACH. Applying traditional materials such as membranes, tapes, and caulking sealants has always been the method of choice when attempting to create an airtight home; however, with the introduction of Step Code, those may no longer be sufficient. The challenge now is to balance efficiency, time, and cost in order to achieve 2.5ACH.
What is your plan going forward into Step Code?
With our specialized application, your home will not only meet, but exceed municipal requirements. In fact, it is possible to completely future-proof your home to Step 5 levels prescribed for the year 2030.
BLOW 65km/hr WIND
We blow strong winds into the building with a specialized fan. The build-up of air pressure forces the wind to leak out of holes, cracks and gaps throughout the structure. A measurement of air leakage is recorded.
FOG THE INTERIOR
By using nozzles strategically placed throughout the building. The air pressure then carries the fog of sealant to the holes, cracks and gaps of the structure.
PLUG THE AIR LEAKS
The air leak gets plug as the fog of sealant is pushed out the building. The difference in temperature and humidity forces the airborne sealant to then coagulate and reform as a solid sealant plugging the holes, cracks and gaps of the structure.
SEAL THE ENTIRE BUILDING
The building get sealed all at once with our patented computerized process. No more guesswork, no more mess, no more failed blower door tests.
