High-Performance Buildings: DELTA®-FASSADE SA
At Dörken, we take pride in responding to unique industry needs with superior-performing solutions. Think of us as the air- and water-resistive barrier know-it-alls of open-joint cladding.
When working with open-joint cladding designs, building professionals once had to choose between design integrity and protection. With no signs of the trend slowing down, this industry-wide dilemma inspired us to develop new product solutions in the form of highly UV-resistant air and water barriers.
Offered alongside DELTA®-FASSADE S, DELTA®-FASSADE SA is a four-layer, self-adhered air- and water-resistive barrier with industry-leading UV stability to ensure product performance and longevity. Its two outer layers are made of a high-strength, spun-bonded polypropylene (PP) fabric and are thermally bonded to a highly vapor permeable, watertight polymeric middle layer, offering a hybrid between the industry-proven DELTA®-VENT SA and DELTA®-FASSADE S.
On top of all of this, the product features an innovative UV-resistant acrylic coating that is proven to provide true UV protection.
The innovation of two high-performance products designed to protect open-joint cladding has afforded us the opportunity to work on some truly inspirational buildings across North America.
In this episode of High-Performance Buildings with Dörken, Dörken’s Technical Service Manager Krzysztof Apriasz reviews how to install DELTA®-FASSADE SA and which other Dörken accessories can be used.
