Residential Project With Fire Protection – the Whitehorn Village

Discover how Whitethorn Village, a residential project led by Cairn prioritized fire safety and energy efficiency in its construction. The project, featuring two apartment buildings, relied on innovative solutions to ensure structural integrity and occupant safety.

Cairn partnered with Remagin to deliver 5-storey residential blocks using an offsite fabricated light gauge steel (LGS) structural system. Partel’s advanced building envelope solutions played a crucial role in enhancing fire protection, airtightness, and energy efficiency.

In this residential project where fire protection was a major concern, Partel’s EXOPERM MONO DURO 200, which has a reaction to fire classification of B-s1, d0 according to EN13501-1, was chosen as the external weathertight barrier – protecting the building fabric from moisture, driving rain and wind.

To achieve the desired level of airtightness, IZOPERM PLUS vapour control layer was factory installed to the LGS wall panels – on the warm side of the insulation – ensuring effective airtightness. VARA SEAL tape and VERBOND adhesive were used to seal junctions, penetrations, and window connections, creating a completely airtight environment.
