Hannoband 3E BG1
Your foolproof, all-in-one solution for sealing windows:
weather seal, vapour membrane and insulation
The top tape among the joint sealing tapes; Withstands driving rain to over 600 pascals
Hannoband BG1 is a traditional joint sealing tape that will pass all modern building specifications and will continue to perform year after year. It is best used with an internal flashing tape such as Hanno Duo Easy and a foam filler.
With window technology improving year on year to prevent heat loss and consequently keep energy bills down, Hannoband 3E ensures those gains don't go to waste on fitting.
It’s so good, it can be used in passive houses and wherever it’s used, it conforms perfectly to building brickwork for a clean finish, where you see the window, not the sealant.
6 benefits of Hannoband 3E BG1
The Hannoband 3E BG1, is probably one of the most underrated products in our whole portfolio. It's an expanding foam tape used to install windows. It forms a weather tight seal between the window frame and the building – and the very best product to do this job. It is the most effective, reliable and long-lasting solution and it is the best product from an environmental point of view, for saving precious energy. I'd like to tell you exactly why, but to put it into context, let's think for a minute about windows, particularly from the point of view of heat loss, or energy conservation.
The purpose of windows is to let light in and allow visibility to the outside, while keeping the wind and rain out. Before that, there was just a gap in the wall, which naturally had to be kept small. Glass was a brilliant invention because it allowed big windows and plenty of light. Unfortunately, glass is a very poor insulator against the cold outside. Some of us still remember waking up to find a layer of ice on the inside of the bedroom windows. But, windows have come on a long way since the early days. If you are looking to buy windows now you will know that modern windows are expensive. If you manufacture windows you know exactly why this is. Modern windows are designed and made to look good, so they actually enhance the look of the building, to keep all of the wind and rain out and, they require little or no maintenance for many years. Critically (at least in latitudes where we have cold winters) they enhance the energy performance of the building.
Over the years, governments and householders have become increasingly aware of the cost of wasted energy and the burden this puts on the environment as well as the householder's pocket..
The best performing windows have the following features:
The best performing windows are highly developed and relatively expensive, although they will save money in the longer term and help protect the environment. YET... many of these expensive, sophisticated windows are still installed in the old fashioned way using beads of mastic around the outside. And that detracts from the performance (and look) of the window. WHY?
Mastic performs just one single function – it provides a weathertight seal. It stops wind and rain getting in between the window and the building. Even then, it may not perform this properly over time.
Modern building standards look for three components in a window seal:
Hannoband 3E BG1 does all this and more and is a product that complements rather than detracts from the excellent look and performance of your new window. Unlike mastic, it performs a number of functions:

Frequently Asked Questions
We slit most of our products to order, so we have no standard roll width. If you want 13mm or 133mm, you can have it.
As a standard, the minimum is 6mm. We can slit most products narrower than this (we have slit down to 1.6mm) but we charge the same per roll as if it were 6mm, due to the increased slitting and packaging difficulty and the increased waste. The maximum width depends on the product, but is usually at least 1 metre.
We hold large quantities of bulk rolls in stock and manufacture to order. That's the only way we can offer the number of products and product variations that we do.
UK deliveries on rolls, 3 to 5 working days. Spools, pads and die-cuts are 10 working days. If your order is urgent, please speak to our sales department and we'll try to help. Export orders are subject to longer delivery times.
Our MOQ on most rolls is £100. On rolls of Techniflex and on other formats it is £200.
On UK orders over £200 delivery is free. On orders between £100 and £200 we add a small order charge of £20. We can arrange a.m. and courier deliveries for additional charges.
