YBS Breathe-R & Breathe-R Ultra

Breathable Membrane & Insulating Layer for Pitched Roofs.

Why install a standard breather membrane when you can insulate at the same time?

The average UK house loses the majority of heat through its roof.
Current building regulations recommend a suitable membrane should be used over the rafters. This is to ensure that the roof is waterproof and breathable. Standard breather membranes offer zero thermal performance.

When roofing your project, why not use Breathe-R or Breathe-R Ultra, incorporating the properties of a breather membrane with the extra benefits of thermal performance.

The Breathe-R range is a quick and easy to install solution for your roofing membrane needs, with a high thermal performance.

Breathable Membrane & Reflective Insulating Layer for Pitched Roofs.

Breathe-R offers a 39% reduction in heat loss, whilst Breathe-R ULTRA offers an increased 54% reduction, when compared to standard, traditional breather membranes, all of which amount to saving you money, by reducing your energy bills.

Breathe-R is 2mm thick and comprises of 2 layers, whereas Breathe-R Ultra is 11mm thick and comprises of 3 layers. Both are manufactured using a high performing and durable roofing membrane as the external outer layer.

Breathe-R’s internal layer is manufactured using highly reflective insulation grade aluminium foil, which is fully perforated to allow free passage of moisture from the internal to external.

Breathe-R gives a overall thermal resistance value of 0.450(m2 K/W), equivalent to approximately 20mm EPS (expanded polystyrene) insulation.

Alternatively, if you are looking for a solution for your loft conversion or new build project, why not check out our BreatherQuilt product, which is fully agrément certified, NHBC accepted and offer a much higher thermal performance (BreatherQuilt).

Breathe-R Ultra’s product core is filled with recycled plastic polyester wadding, which reduces the risk of cold bridging.
The internal layer is manufactured using highly reflective insulation grade aluminium foil, which is fully perforated to allow free passage of moisture from the internal to external.

Breathe-R Ultra gives you a breathable and a high thermal efficient product with an overall thermal resistance value of 0.711 (m2 K/W), equivalent to approximately 30mm EPS (expanded polystyrene) insulation.
