Open Joint Applications

  • Install a single layer of REVEALSHIELDIT Water Resistive Vapor Permeable Air Barrier Membrane to create the desired black open joint.
  • Enhanced design opportunities with open joints up to 2" wide with a maximum of 40% total open wall area.

Cost Effectiveness

  • Single layer material application and integrated tape at horizontal seams reduces installation time and material expense. 
  • Tear, rip and puncture resistant during and after construction, reducing the need for repairs and additional labor costs.

Air Barrier System

  • Meets all relevant international and local code requirements pertaining to Air Barrier Membranes.
  • Creating an air barrier behind open joint cladding is greatly simplified by REVEALSHIELDIT's Integrated Tape at horizontal seams.

Drying Capacity

  • Allows building materials to dry out while keeping bulk water from infiltrating the building envelope.
  • Helps to maintain conditions to counteract mold and mildew growth, promoting healthy buildings and clean indoor air quality.

Durability and Performance

  • Withstands extreme weather conditions. The Integrated Tape allows installation in a wide range of weather conditions from below freezing to extremely hot temperatures.
  • Sustains 180 days UV and climate exposure, prior to cladding installation.

Environmental Sustainability and Energy Efficiency

  • Contributes to LEED points in Indoor Environmental Quality and Energy & Atmosphere.
  • Combined with an overall energy efficiency strategy, VaproShield's Air Barrier Systems can help to reduce energy consumption.
