TradeSelect VapourTech Brane VHPVapour Permeable Membrane
Classified as High Water Barrier, Low Vapour Barrier, Trade Select™ VapourTech Brane® VHP permits very high levels of condensation absorption and diffusion, allowing water vapour to escape from within the wall structure while restricting the ingress of liquid moisture. Trade Select™ VapourTech Brane® VHP is non-reactive so may be used in conjunction with treated timbers or close to coastlines. It can also be effectively used as an air barrier in unlined areas such as attics.
- Tear resistant
- Low flammability
- Easy to install
- 2.74m width for quicker installation

Trade Select™ VapourTech Brane® VHP should be installed in accordance with AS/NZS 4200.2:1994 Pliable Building Membranes and Underlays, Part 2: Installation Requirements.
Trade Select™ VapourTech Brane® VHP should be installed horizontally as a continuous membrane by fixing to all framing members with the printed side facing out. Trade Select™ VapourTech Brane® VHP should extend from the top plate to the bottom plate on concrete slabs or bearers in timber construction. Fixings should be galvanised clouts or staples for timber construction and tech screws for fastening to steel constructions. In high wind areas, it is recommended to install using non-rip caps on clouts, staples or tech screws. Horizontal, vertical and end overlaps must be 150 mm, with all top layers overlapping the outside of lower layers to prevent water ingress. Stagger any vertical overlaps. Any damage made to Trade Select™ VapourTech Brane® VHP during installation including holes and tears must be repaired. Trade Select™ VapourTech Brane® VHP is not designed to withstand prolonged direct exposure to UV light and the elements. Outer cladding should be installed without delay.
