Over 90,000 sq. ft. of WrapShield IT Integrated Tape was installed on the Burnham & Ash Apartments located in Tigard, Oregon. A mechanically attached, water resistive, vapor permeable air barrier, WrapShield IT features factory installed integrated tape at the horizontal seams. This feature reduces installation time and material expenses without compromising quality. WrapShield IT seals horizontal seams in all weather conditions, and easily creates the shingled effect for optimum air and water tight horizontal joinery.
Composed of two buildings with 165 market-rate apartments and more than 2,000 sq. ft. of commercial space, the Burnham & Ash Apartments trusted their $30M investment with VaproShield membranes. In addition, rough openings were flashed using pre-cut VaproFlashing, saving valuable installation time.
