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.

The TYPAR System consists of the following:

CedAir-Mat® Roof Ventilation Mat

Advanced Building Products’ CedAir-Mat® is a ventilation mat used in cedar roof construction. The 90% open mesh creates an airspace/cavity that is perfect for promoting air flow in all directions between the metal panels and sheathing.

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.

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.
