At 23 storeys, it’s one of the Midland’s tallest, most ambitious buildings – and a striking addition to the Coventry skyline that was only possible with help from illbruck’s state-of-the-art sealant technology.

The four-towered CODE Student Accommodation building will house over a thousand spacious studio apartments, a gym, a cinema and more, and is conveniently located just two minutes from the University of Coventry’s main campus.

But thousands of rooms mean thousands of windows – and that’s where illbruck’s involvement began.

“The fabricator fitting the windows on the project, wanted a quick, simple, issue-free installation process,” comments illbruck Product Manager David Naylor.

“That’s why we recommended our ME220 membrane. It offers excellent weather sealing, it’s robust and slow to age, it’s got a highly effective vapour-barrier, and is very resistant to mechanical damage.

“Add in the fact it’s a breeze to fit, and you’ve got the perfect product for a high-volume installation like this.

“We also provided ME350 – a fully self-adhesive product for delivering an outstanding airtight and weatherproof seal.

“It’s incredibly gratifying to see our products used in a project as big and ambitious as this – and now, whenever you look up in Coventry, you’re very likely to see a window fitted with illbruck technology!”
