Building science international best practice, identifies that the optimum place for the four principal control layers (water, air, vapour & thermal) is to locate them on the outside of the structure in order to protect the structure.
The ARIDON® System is the only all-in one solution that provides an environmental separator—keeping the outside elements out and the inside temperatures in, enabling a healthier indoor environment that performs for the life of the building. The ARIDON® system replaces the need for building wrap, rigid air barriers, cavity battens, and insulation with a thermal layer of interlocking weatherproof panels, installed on the exterior of the building frame, keeping it warm and dry. This minimises the risk of condensation, mould and mildew forming within the wall since the framing cavity is effectively kept at room temperature.
ARIDON®’s unique combination of self-sealing joints, drainage plane, cavity batten and a rigid air barrier (NZ3604 – Extra High wind zones) provides superior protection against water intrusion and condensation. The ARIDON® layer of continuous insulation has comparable performance to 140mm framing and R4 cavity insulation – with only 90mm framing.
