Weather-resistant barrier systems are typically installed in the cavity between a wall’s structural backup and rainscreen veneer, which are prone to moisture. Although masonry veneer cavities often see little moisture, wet cavity metal panel constructions can gather significant amounts of water.
Hydro Rents’ weather-resistant barrier (WRB) systems work to prevent moisture from penetrating walls and seeping into finished interiors.
WRB systems are available in a variety of configurations, from a simple sheet membrane to a full fluid-applied membrane. All WRB systems include the following:
- Wall membrane
- Window and door sealers
- Parapet cover system
These WRB systems are manufactured by W.R. Grace, PROSOCO, Tyvek, and Henry Company.
