Eliminate water concerns at horizontal joints with WallShield IT Integrated Tape.

 

Superior Building Envelope Protection

  • Cutting-edge drying capacity (permeability, 142 perms) reduces risk of long-term damage from moisture infiltration, mold, mildew and rot
  • Install on wet sheathings allowing saturated substrates to dry-out
  • Resists bulk water infiltration

Horizontal Integrated Tape and Cost Effectiveness

  • Reduce installation time, lower material expenses and limit tape failures with integrated tape at the horizontal seams
  • Increase accuracy of required 6” shingled overlap, ensuring water tight joinery, by lining upper membrane to lower membrane with pre-marked lap template
  • Installs quickly and easily, mechanically attaching with VaproCaps to plywood, OSB and gypsum sheathing, rigid insulation, concrete block and pour-in-place concrete
  • Reduces contractor liability by using fully tested VaproShield system: single source membranes, flashings and sealants
  • Long-term durability with standard 20 year material warranty

Phase Construction Friendly

  • Install in all climates and weather conditions
  • No special installation equipment required, use common hand tools
  • Tear, rip and puncture resistant during and after construction, reducing repairs
  • Sustains six (6) months of UV and climate exposure

Environmental Sustainability

  • Contributes to LEED points in Indoor Environmental Quality and Energy & Atmosphere
  • Is 100% recyclable

Rough Opening Flashing
Fast and efficient rough opening flashing uses VaproShield accessories specifically designed and tested to work together, making field training and installation easy.
