“Turn what you have to do into what you want to do”

In spite of having to add ESD features to your development there are some good reasons for wanting to do so!

Condensation

Artificial cooling of buildings in some climates can cause condensation to form inside the layers of the building envelope. Such condensation can cause significant structural or cosmetic damage to the envelope before it is detected. Associated mould growth may also create health risks to the occupants.

Effective control of condensation is a complex issue. In some locations a fully sealed vapour barrier may need to be installed on the more humid, or generally warmer, side of the insulation. i.e. outside the insulation in hot humid climates or inside the insulation in cold climates.
