Specifications

A weather resistant barrier is a building's main protection against the damaging effects of the elements. A functioning barrier must include four basic properties:

  • It must have a high level of AIR RESISTANCE - to help prevent drafts, reduce energy bills and resist the flow of moisture laden air through wall cavities.
  • It must have a high level of WATER RESISTANCE - to help protect the wall cavity from water that gets behind the cladding.
  • It must have moderate to high VAPOUR PERMEABILITY - to promote drying in wall systems.
  • It must be DURABLE - to withstand the rigors of the construction site and continue to perform once construction is completed.
  • 10-Year limited warranty
