What We're Specifying: Solitex Extasana Wrap

Solitex Extasana is a synthetic non porous wall underlay produce by Pro Clima. Pro Clima is a German based company that specializes in air and watertight building systems.  Solitex Extasana is a superior building wrap that has high levels of diffusion, breathability and has a very high level of water resistance.  It’s a high spec building wrap and is regularly used in certified passive house and energy efficient builds along with another Pro Clima product - the Intello internal vapour barrier.

Over the Solitex Extasana wrap is a 150mm Larch weatherboard over a 20mm drained and ventilated cavity. This particular Larch is sourced from Siberia where long cold winters promote slow growth rates. The timber has a similar appearance to local NZ hardwoods such as Lawson’s Cypress or Macrocarpa. Rustic and characteristic it makes  for a great cladding option when highlighting feature walls.
