What are the Benefits of Using Apache for Vapour Barrier Protection?
Apache is a simple solution to a tricky problem
By removing the need for bubble-wrap or polystyrene collars, Apache tidies up a messy part of the construction process. There’s no need for extensive use of PVC jointing tape, so waste is minimised. The result is a quality installation and a saving in labour cost.
Quick and easy to install
The pre-formed Apache sleeve is designed for easy placement over the penetration, with no specialist skills required. For step-by-step instructions, see our video tutorial.
Apache provides reliable control of water egress for minimal cost. Simple installation lets you quickly create a reliable barrier and move onto the next task.
