Moisture Management

TYPAR® Weather Protection System

The TYPAR® Weather Protection System provides exceptional air and water holdout, optimal moisture vapor transmission, superior tear strength, and outstanding surfactant resistance. At the heart of the system are TYPAR Weather Resistant Barriers (WRB) which act as air and moisture barriers, while allowing moisture vapor to escape from the wall cavity. Installed before the exterior siding, TYPAR WRBs also protect the structure from nature’s harshest elements with exceptional tear strength and ultraviolet stability.

TYPAR® BuildingWrap

TYPAR BuildingWrap is more than an extra layer of protection that secures the building envelope from the outside. It’s also an added level of assurance that homes and structures will feel more comfortable on the inside.

It eliminates drafts in the wall, which helps reduce energy costs. Plus, the TYPAR material itself will not support the growth of mold or disintegrate over time. And that means more confidence and fewer worries over the long haul.

📽 TYPAR BuildingWrap – Second to None:


  • Extraordinary tear strength – 5x better than the competition
  • Exceptional holdout – blocks air and water from getting in
  • Optimal breathability – lets moisture inside the wall cavity escape
  • Excellent surfactant resistance – reduces damage from oils, tannins, and soaps
  • Superior UV stability – no degradation from sunlight for up to six months of exposure
  • Incredible versatility – able to be used under most types of cladding

TYPAR® MetroWrap®


It’s tough up there. TYPAR MetroWrap® is engineered to ensure that when you’re building over four stories, you’re more than ready for the challenge. The product’s strengths make it a superior choice for defending multi-family dwellings, light commercial projects, and large commercial structures. With enhanced UV protection, it even helps you deal with project delays and changing timelines.

📽 TYPAR Metro Wrap – Commercial Muscle:


  • Stands up to sunlight – leave exposed for up to 12 months with no UV degradation
  • Holds tighter during construction – tear-strength 5x greater than the competition
  • Boosts energy-efficiency – superior air and water holdout reduces energy costs
  • Safeguards healthy spaces – will not support mold growth (ASTM D3273) and protects indoor quality
  • Resists surfactant damage – handles harsh chemicals and jobsite cleaning techniques

TYPAR® DrainableWrap

Based on the already incredible TYPAR® material, TYPAR® DrainableWrap provides uniquely strong protection from moisture, mold, and rot. It features an additional layer of integrated polypropylene fibers that create a highly efficient gap for shedding excess water. Count on it to safeguard your walls and your good name.

📽 TYPAR DrainableWrap – Bulk Water Defense:


  • Rapid action – drains bulk water significantly faster than most conventional house wraps, per ASTM E2273 testing
  • Multidirectional flow – install in any direction without affecting performance
  • Code-compliant – exceeds minimum AC38 Code requirement for Drainage Efficiency as per ASTM E2273
  • One-of-a-kind – it’s drainable, it’s TYPAR, and part of their lifetime limited system warranty coverage

Mortairvent® Rain Screen

The Clear Choice™
Perfect for all exterior siding applications. Advanced Building Products‘ innovative RAIN SCREEN technology equalizes the air pressure within the wall system by creating a drainage and ventilation cavity between the weather resistant barrier (WRB) and the exterior wall. This design allows excess moisture to drain from the wall system and allows ventilated air to circulate and dry the interior wall components.

📽 Mortairvent Installation:


  • 95% open design enables moisture drainage and drying
  • Resistant to most known corrosive chemicals and reduces the risk of mold or mildew
  • Minimizes staining, peeling, and blistering of exterior finishes
  • Contributes to LEED points
  • Simple installation; easier and more cost-effective than traditional methods
  • 2-ply design improves the strength properties of the rain screen, and deflects mortar
  • Filter fabric allows for guide lines to be snapped

Watairvent® Furring Strips

Advanced Building Products has taken the traditional furring strip and re-designed it to function in the modern building environment. Watairvent® Furring Strips are manufactured from a mold resistant, non-absorptive composite material, and their dual vertical and horizontal channels allow for dual drainage and cross ventilation.
