Green building, also known as green construction or sustainable building, refers to a structure or process the is environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a buildings lifestyle.
The aim of using Butyl tape in buildings is to lessen the energy usage, ventilation air loss and to improve on efficiency of water saving systems.
Butyl tape is extremely durable, long lasting and the perfect sealing solution for green building projects.
Much of the energy needed to cool buildings in summer and to heat them in winter is lost through the roof sheeting. By correctly sealing the roof sheeting, a large amount of energy that would otherwise be required for climate control can be saved.
Energy is also lost when ducts and ventilation systems are leaking. Energy is lost trying to keep the system running at full capacity. By sealing ducting and ventilation systems, energy will be saved
Many companies and private residents collect water through gutters and store it in water tanks, nut leaking gutters lose this valuable resource. Butyl Tape offers a long-lasting solution for leaking gutters.
