An ongoing frustration of cladding delays and all that that entails was the reason behind Adam Creek from Signature Homes, Christchurch, opting to use Masons UNI FR Flexible Air Barrier on his builds. Historically, Adam had used other air barriers but found the performance of the UNI FR System including its washers and fixings easier to use and better value.
It took a timely visit by Masons South Island Rep, Riki Tukaki to be introduced to the Masons UNI FR System and Adam and his team have never looked back. “A concern of mine was getting all the crews on the same page with materials, knowledge and tools,” says Adam, “But with the abundance of support and training from Riki, this was sorted amazingly quickly and all of the staff and contractors were ready for action, in no time.”
Adam was keen to share that using Masons UNI FR had been a lifesaver on several occasions. One in particular stood out. “We had a job on Colwyn Street, Christchurch, that was delayed six weeks due to the homeowner changing the bricks. Fortunately for us, we had used UNI FR and were able to progress with work internally. We had the painting done and even the kitchen installed before the cladding had been completed! Based on this alone I would 100% recommend UNI FR to others.”
UNI FR is a New Zealand Designed Flexible Air Barrier with unique reinforcing and highly water resistant features that give weather protection for up to 90 days before cladding is installed. It then becomes a secondary line of defence against moisture over the lifetime of the building. UNI FR has been described within the building industry as a game changer.
