ZIP BOARD BY J.M. HUBER COMPANIES
For years, homes have been built the same way. Not anymore.
The best energy efficiency product in the market. “Some can say they are as good but none can say they are better”. Better control of thermal bridging, increased wall insulation, tremendous vapor barrier, reduced labor cost in sheathing installation, immediate weathered in conditioned on your job.
A REVOLUTIONARY NEW APPROACH TO BUILDING ENCLOSURES, ZIP SYSTEM® SHEATHING AND TAPE STREAMLINES THE WEATHERIZATION PROCESS WITH AN INTEGRATED WATER- AND AIR-RESISTIVE BARRIER THAT DELIVERS MOISTURE AND AIR PROTECTION IN ONE, EASY-TO-INSTALL SYSTEM.
- Installation speed & ease – Quick and simple two-step installation eliminates the need for housewrap and felt.
- Continuous air barrier – Taped seams form a tight barrier against air leakage for an energy-efficient building envelope.
- Integrated water-resistive barrier – Helps protect against water intrusion while still allowing the panels to properly dry.
- Structural durability – Enhanced engineered wood panel designed to meet Structural 1 rating requirements.
FOR YEARS, HOMES HAVE BEEN BUILD THE SAME WAY. NOT ANYMORE.
Throughout history, home construction has been shaped by two forces: water and air. In the early 2000s, Huber Engineered Woods set out to develop an innovative approach to building envelopes; one that offered durable structural performance combined with moisture and air protection in an easy-to-install sheathing system.
The result is ZIP System® sheathing and tape, a revolutionary new approach to building enclosures that solves the age-old challenge of water, air and vapor control with a streamlined structural system offering integrated protection and a simple, fast installation.
EXPLORE THE SCIENCE BEHIND ZIP SYSTEM®SHEATHING AND TAPE.
To develop ZIP System® sheathing and tape, our engineers consulted with building science experts, talked to builders in the field and examined data to determine why conventional methods were falling short. Using cutting-edge manufacturing, we engineered a product specifically designed to solve everyday jobsite issues and simplify specification for managing multiple control layers with one, easy-to-install system.
FIND OUT WHY BUILDERS SWITCHED TO ZIP SYSTEM®SHEATHING AND TAPE.
“It was a no-brainer to spend a little more money to make sure my exterior was air tight. ZIP System® sheathing and tape is definitely the best way to achieve my goals.” – Mitchell Spence, Redfish Development Group
“If you think of a house in terms of all the concepts of shelter – I want to be protected, I want to be comfortable, healthy, warm, dry – ZIP System®sheathing and tape takes a lot of the barriers that control those concepts and laminates them together.” – Steve Baczek, Steven Baczek Architeture
“With a big afternoon storm, felt and housewrap can be blown off the home and the crews don’t always reapply it properly – ZIP System® sheathing is much better because you don’t have to worry about that.” – Patrick Zalupski, Dream Finder Homes
