Berry Global is expanding its line of high-performance building wraps through the launch of Typar DrainableWrap, the company’s first drainable building wrap engineered to protect multi-story structures from the elements and manage excess moisture. Typar DrainableWrap Commercial has joined Typar MetroWrap in the brand’s growing portfolio of building wraps designed specifically for commercial structures.
“The addition of Typar DrainableWrap Commercial is further proof of Berry Global’s commitment to the commercial market and delivering on our customer promise of Innovation for the World. Solutions for You.,” said Andrew Irvine, product manager, Typar.
“This new commercial wrap offers the superior UV protection and tear strength needed for commercial job sites while also helping commercial builders and architects address the growing challenge of drainage in high-rise building envelopes.”
DrainableWrap Commercial, available in 5′ by 150′ rolls, offers an elevated ability to deal with excess moisture faster than most conventional house wraps. This is the result of Typar’s patented meltshot technology, which adds an integrated layer of fibres to create an effective drainage gap that channels wind-driven rain and bulk water away from the structure.
DrainableWrap Commercial can be installed as part of the Typar Weather Protection System, which encompasses the brand’s full line of high-performance house wraps, tapes, and accessories. The system balances water and air holdout with the ideal level of moisture vapor transmission while also improving the building’s overall energy efficiency. When installed together, the complete Typar Weather Protection System is covered by the only lifetime limited warranty in the industry that includes materials and labour.
