Paulo Carvalho, Effisus’s Commercial and Corporate Relations Director, represented our company at the event. The topic of his lecture was A1 Fire Rated Waterproofing Solutions, during which he shared all you need to know about Effisus’s unique Fire Rated AVCL Membranes and Systems.

In the sad light of the several building fire incidents that have, unfortunately, continued to occur over recent years, not only in the Middle East, but also in Europe, it is crucial to have adequate fire protection and non-combustible materials for use in the construction industry.

Effisus offers fire rated Class A1 membranes and Class A2 systems, which include all the necessary accessories stipulated in the fire test for the EN 13501-1 classification, and are approved and certified by Dubai Civil Defense, among many other recognized bodies.

Weather conditions in the Middle East make it advisable to install an air and vapour control layer on the exterior of the facade, to prevent air and moisture flow from the outside (hot air) to the inside (cold air). The Effisus Vapour FR System performs this function perfectly, thus protecting the building from condensation risk and improving the airtightness and energy efficiency of the facade.

The main advantage of the Effisus Vapour FR System is its compatibility, simplicity of use and inclusion of all the necessary accessories, thus reducing the element of human error and providing greater efficiency and quality in the end product.
