Using Customised Underlay to Reduce Waste, Reduce Costs and Save Time

Thermakraft's products are made right here in New Zealand and are specifically developed to comply with NZ's unique conditions and code requirements. Thermakraft offers integrated solutions that create weathertight building envelopes, providing drier, safer, healthier homes for social housing projects across New Zealand.

Social housing projects require quality, cost-effective and trusted products to provide solutions that create a healthy living environment — and products that do a better job for less money, also factoring in whole-of-life costs. The Thermakraft philosophy and range of products aligns well with this approach. Thermakraft's integrated solutions not only save time, but also reduce costs and minimise waste. A Thermakraft solution provides a weathertight envelope under a single warranty enabling dry, safe and healthy homes. Thermakraft is ISO9001 accredited — the majority of Thermakraft products are BRANZ appraised and CodeMark certified.

Across a large-scale project further savings can be made using wide width rolls and utilising Thermakraft's exclusive ability to cut Covertek underlay to length within 5-10 days lead time.

As a complete envelope specification for a multi-unit social housing project, Paula Wallace, National Specification Manager, suggests Thermethene Orange DPM joined with White General Purpose Tape, Supercourse 500 DPC, Watergate Plus 2740mm, Thermaflash Window Flashing Tape, Thermastrap, OneSeal penetration seals and Covertek roof underlay — either as a standard length roll or cut to length (Covertek 407, 405, 403 or 401 depending on requirements). If a rigid air barrier system is required, Premium Joining Tape, Thermaflash and OneSeal are approved and BRANZ appraised as part of the James Hardie RAB System.

Thermakraft can also provide specifications efficiencies, offering bespoke in-practice presentations tailored to social housing or a Masterspec Office Master setup.
