Eco-Brite® Reflective Membrane - Ideal for prefabricated buildings
posted: 1st Aug 2011
Apollo’s Eco-Brite® is a cost-effective, two sided heat reflecting membrane for use within the fabric of prefabricated domestic and commercial building components including portable and modular structures. Eco-Brite is engineered to reflect over 95% of radiant energy, enhancing U-values whilst simultaneously helping create air-tight structures.
The Eco-Brite® membrane at 135 microns thick is a composite laminate of aluminium foil, a tough polyethylene film and metallised polyester film. The outer reflective surfaces are protected with a proprietary coating which ensures their reflectivity for many years. Eco-Brite® holds BBA Certification, and fire certificates BS476 to Part 6 and Part 7.
The BRE has independently tested Eco-Brite®, and concludes it will save up to 23kg of CO2 per square meter per annum.
