Title: Temperature and humidity in batten voids

Ref Code: IP20/01
Authors: P L Walton and P Baker

Abstract1: Changes in construction methods and materials, such as breathable membranes and high peformance thermal insulation, introduce new issues for the integrity of buildings. This Information Paper describes measurements within batten voids to determine the conditions in which condensation occurs; and whether the condensation leads, in turn, to increased levels of moisture in battens. In theory, there could be risks of condensation in batten voids which may affect the moisture content of battens.
