This is a one-of-a-kind structural roof and wall system with a built-in energy-efficient barrier that keeps moisture out and reduces air leakage. It installs in only two easy steps. First, install the panels, and second, tape the seams. Fewer steps result in 40% faster installation when compared to traditional housewrap and felt.
The ZIP System Sheathing is designed specifically to address the growing need for building performance, comfort and energy efficiency and is the only all-in-one solution that delivers the strength, durability and efficiency of engineered wood while sealing out air and water.
Key Features and Components of ZIP System® Sheathing and Tape
- High quality structural sheathing panel made of engineered wood delivers strength and durability.
- Built-in vapor permeable water-resistive barrier eliminates the hassles of house wrap and felt. Engineered for enhanced drainage of bulk water and optimal permeability to allow water vapor to pass through and promote drying.
- A continuous, rigid air barrier decreases unwanted air leakage for greater energy efficiency.
- ZIP System™ tape with a specially engineered, high performance acrylic adhesive bonds with ZIP System® panels for a permanent protective seal.
