Typar - Providing excellent livability and energy conservation for the inhabitants is always a primary goal when designing a built environment. Designing a building envelope that provides these features plus protection against water penetration and its damaging impact are significant challenges for today’s architects and designers. Over the past decade, there have been significant advances in construction techniques, namely moisture and air barrier systems, that can greatly improve comfort and efficiency, as well as impact the structural integrity of a building.
One such system is the Typar Weather Protection System. It provides exceptional air and water holdout, optimal moisture vapor transmission, superior tear strength and outstanding surfactant resistance, all while delivering The Typar Advantage. At the heart of the system is Typar HouseWrap or MetroWrap™ which acts as an air and moisture barrier, while allowing moisture vapor to escape from the wall cavity. Installed before the exterior siding, Typar Weather Resistant Barrier (WRB) wraps also protect the structure from Nature’s harshest elements with unprecedented tear strength and ultraviolet stability.
