TYPAR to Exhibit Weather Protection System Products at 2020 International Builders’ Show

This year at the 2020 International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas, TYPAR® will display its full line of housewrap products highlighted by the latest addition to the TYPAR® Weather Protection System—TYPAR® Drainable Wrap™

TYPAR Drainable Wrap has the ability to shed more bulk water than traditional house wraps and offers the added efficiency of an integrated drainage plane, while providing the durability builders and contractors expect from TYPAR building wraps. The science behind TYPAR Drainable Wrap is a layer of multi-directional fibers that diverts bulk water from exterior wall cavities and drains it away from the assembly—preventing the potential damage caused by mold and rot. The highly efficient TYPAR Drainable Wrap helps shed water, while meeting or exceeding current code requirements per ASTM E2273.

“The International Builders’ Show is a great opportunity to showcase high-performance products like Drainable Wrap while connecting with existing and potential customers,” said Thomas Olsen, senior director of product marketing for TYPAR. “We learn so much from our builders and contractors during this event, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive for Drainable Wrap. We’re eager to attend this year’s event and to share what’s next from TYPAR.”

A record-setting year for TYPAR, the weather-resistant Drainable Wrap earned nods from Building Design + Construction, Professional Builder and Green Builder. The readers of Professional Builder magazine named TYPAR Drainable Wrap a Top 100 Product while editors from Building Design + Construction selected Drainable Wrap as one of the Top 101 Building Envelope Products. The leading voice in sustainable construction, Green Builder magazine, also deemed TYPAR Drainable Wrap a Hot 50 Product.

As part of the TYPAR Weather Protection System, TYPAR Drainable Wrap is covered by an industry leading lifetime-limited warranty that includes both materials and labor.

The complete system includes TYPAR® BuildingWrap™, Drainable Wrap, and MetroWrap™ for commercial applications, as well as a variety of flashing options and construction tape.

The system provides the perfect balance of water/air holdout and moisture vapor transmission, while having an impact on the overall energy efficiency of the home.
