Frame Shield
Frameshield 100 is a spunbonded polypropylene material developed primarily as a breather membrane for use in timber frame building wall construction.

Applied in the factory during manufacture or on site. Frameshield 100, affords effective protection of timber frames during construction against wind-driven rain, snow and dust. Once completed, the high water vapour permeability of Frameshield 100 allows the controlled escape of vapour from within the timber frame whilst restricting the ingress of rain and moisture.
