We think Vaproshield has one of the best products out there for weather resistive barriers in rainscreen envelope design.  Their self-adhering sheets work very well in the indoor fabrication environment and even further accelerate the construction process in comparison to mechanically fastened products.

Our friends at Vaproshield recently featured our collaboration in NYC on their site, saying:

WRAPSHIELD SA® SELF-ADHERED was a logical choice for Mark Line Industries and the project team. The product provides the 12’ by 40’ units superior protection against changing weather. WRAPSHIELD SA® SELF-ADHERED helps to regulate air flow to keep units cool in the summer and warm in the winter, thus reducing energy costs. The product’s vapor permeability can reduce the effects of moisture damage such as mold, mildew and rot to assist in ensuring the units’ lasting structural integrity. VaproShield products contain zero VOCs, meeting Mark Line Industries’ rigorous sustainable design build standard.
