To reach today’s demanding standards of construction and comfort, buildings need to meet ever-tougher challenges of ventilation, drainage and sound control.
BonarBuilt’s family of textile products and components makes it easier for builders and planners to deliver the innovations that achieve those targets – from green roofs that bring nature to the city, to sound dampening technology that softens the noisy rush of a busy hospital.
A thermal underlayer is invaluable in helping metal roofs counter difficult climate conditions. It can battle adverse temperature change, humidity, even rainfall noise to improve the roof’s lifespan as well as the experience for those living beneath it. BonarBuilt excels in this use, while our Enkamat, Enkavent and Enkadrain products are also used to improve sidewall ventilation and prevent Radon gas permeating into buildings from soil.
Enkadrain polymeric mats offer drainage performance that outclasses any other solution on the market. For horizontal applications they’re able to lie completely flat, making installation fast and easy. For subsurface drainage our heavy-duty mats have exceptional flow rates and can withstand compression under even the heaviest soil pressure.
In hospitals, offices, hotels and a range of other buildings, noise transmission can become a major distraction, and even danger. Beneath our feet Enkasonic works economically with every type of flooring to dramatically reduce noise levels. Above our heads it fills the cavities beneath roofing to slash the volume of rain and the drone of passing planes and traffic.
Our green roof solutions use lightweight, pre-vegetated mats (grown near the site for healthier plants and more economic transport). Their modular construction makes them fast and easy to assemble for an ‘instant green’ result. Supporting them with products such as Enkadrain improves drainage and stormwater control as well as easing roof maintenance and extending lifespan.
Our Colback fabric is used the world over whenever there’s a need for the highest standard membranes for roofing or vapour and moisture control.
BonarBuilt’s Enkadrain is the most effective, popular and economic way to ensure cavity walls drain properly. Designed for masonry applications, it catches the mortar droppings that block vents and allow moisture to seep down.
Helping our customers deliver amazing results on projects that improve our quality of life…while driving business growth.
Our underlay helped the University of West Oahu extend the life of its zinc roofs, solving the problem of corrosion and high cooling costs.
Reduced rooftop temperature
Less rainfall noise
In a collaborative ‘meeting of minds’, we helped a leading North American OEM (original equipment manufacturer) launch a new product that cost less to produce.
