“Air infiltration can account for 30% or more of a building’s heating and cooling costs and contribute to problems with moisture, noise, dust, and entry of pollutants, insects, and rodents. Nearly 45% of this uncontrolled air infiltrates through openings in ceilings, walls, and floors, as well as plumbing penetrations.”
- U.S. Department of Energy

LEAKY BUILDINGS ARE INEFFICIENT, UNCOMFORTABLE
The key to eliminating air leakage is to properly seal the connections between buildings materials and assemblies, ensuring no gaps exist among the planes of airtightness. Manual sealing methods are labour intensive and costly, but most importantly, they offer no guarantees.
SEAL THE GAP
Suite Sealing technology is a general-purpose system that seals holes a large as 1/2 of an inch, all the way down to holes not visible to the human eye – those as small as a hair follicle.

AIRTIGHT BUILDINGS = AIRTIGHT RETURNS
A tight building envelope allows you to reduce the size of your mechanical infrastructure
and subsequent energy consumption. Sealing individual suites improves indoor air quality and reduces the transfer of pests, odours, and sound.
