Membrane

Kontract Mesh:

HDPE. High density polyethylene with moulded compression studs and HDPE mesh facing.
Compression (maximum): 150 kN/m².
On walls, suitable as backing for plasterboard on dabs or direct application of plaster.
Fixed to walls at 250 mm centres by drilling through membrane studs and inserting plaster plugs. Lap sheets 90 mm and seal using tape.
Suitable for ventilated application on walls above DPC level: Leave 20 mm gap to bottom of wall membrane and 10 mm gap to top. Insert profile strips into applied finishes or offset skirtings and covings.
Suitable for applied coatings on walls: Use lightweight gypsum plasters or 1:1:6 cement:sand:lime render. 8 mm first coat to fill studs. 7 mm second coat. 3 mm skim coat. (Plaster or render specified elsewhere).
Suitable for applied dry linings on walls.
On floors, loose lay with compression studs downwards. Butt joint and seal using Overtape. Seal wall/ floor junction using Corner detail trim.
Floors can be overlaid using expanded polystyrene insulation with T&G floorboards, conventional screed or anhydrite screed. (Floorboards or screeds specified elsewhere).
