Full pro clima System in a New Passive House
SOLITEX MENTO® 3000 provides superior weather and condensation protection for your roof, under all weather conditions. With type R4 classification (NZS 2295), it is suitable to be used in self supported applications up to and including extra high wind zones. SOLITEX MENTO® 3000 protects your roof and building envelope from the elements during construction, whilst allowing any internal moisture to escape through the vapour permeable, non-porous TEEE layer.
INTELLO® PLUS is a market-leading intelligent air barrier for all construction types, providing superior energy and moisture control. INTELLO® PLUS maximises the performance of your thermal insulation, whilst restricting internal moisture entering the building envelope. INTELLO® PLUS is reinforced for strength and durability, utilising HydrosafeTM technology. This intelligent air barrier provides optimal protection against structural damage and mould, even in the event of unexpected moisture intrusion.
SOLITEX EXTASANA® wall underlay provides the best weather protection layer for your walls, under all conditions. It protects the building from wind, driving rain and other external sources of water, whilst allowing any internal moisture to escape through the vapour permeable, non-porous TEEE layer.
Another Passive House has come to life in Christchurch!

This project is an impressive undertaking and we won’t be shy about making a big shout out to Peter Bielski and his dedicated Ethos Homes team, as well as Ali & Gary’s focus and commitment to building a certified Passive House.
Here’s to you all!
