Foreverbreathe™

NZS0076-Forever-Breathe-Header v3b-685
 

The Foreverbreathe™ high performance breathable wall system allows moisture vapour to travel through the wall while remaining airtight. This is a departure from traditional walls that trap in moisture, causing condensation, mould, structural decay, higher energy costs and health issues. This is achieved through a clever combination of non-toxic, breathable materials that provide increased indoor air quality and energy savings without moisture entrapment. Download product information sheet here


Make health the heart of your home

Consider these facts

  • An ever increasing volume of moisture and nasty chemical is trapped within the airtight shell to form what is known as a chemical cocktail effect. An effect currently mitigated by energy sapping mechanical air movement systems and calculations that determine the total area included for opening windows. These mitigation systems are outdated and in conflict with the need to reduce energy costs and drive for sustainable construction methods.
  • Building failures are on the increase with wall solutions failing within warranty periods.
  • The overwhelming majority of chemicals in built environments remain untested.
  • Indoor air quality has been estimated to be an average of 5-10 times more unhealthy than outside air (EPA, WHO).
  • Several recent surveys estimate that children on average spend 90% of their time indoors.
  • The airtight strategy and the value structure that supports it must be earnestly re-examined.
