House Wrap
House wraps are typically
installed over wood or insulation and for re-siding, over wood siding, or other exterior coverings. It creates
a protective barrier against
air infiltration and liquid moisture. It is also designed
to allow damaging vapors to escape from inside the home.
New Horizons house wraps are manufactured to be tough enough to meet demanding construction conditions. House Wraps also provide protection
from the elements for homes under construction.
 
HOUSE WRAP FEATURES & BENEFITS
 

House Wrap is woven polyolefin fabric engineered to be a weather resistant barrier.
It reduces air infiltration through residential and commercial exterior side wall construction.
House Wrap has micro perforations that provides
a space for water vapors to
escape (instead of being
trapped against the wall).
House wrap products should have an excellent tensile strength and tear resistance to withstand heavy wind driven loads. Its other important features include:
Maintains thermal efficiency by reducing
air infiltration
Reduces air leaks when installed with taped joints
Micro-perforated allows water vapor to escape
Helps protect home until exterior finishing materials
can be applied
Tear resistant—stays in place even after wind
gusts from storms tear other house wrap loose
UV Resistant, can be left exposed for 9 months
Lightweight—easy to handle for fast and efficient
product installation
Translucence—helps installers to see the subsurface
for better positioning and fastening
Flexible around corners and uneven surfaces
Our House Wrap meets the requirements of weather
resistant barriers as defined by ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria AC 38. See ICC Evaluation Services ESR 2801. Our House Wrap also meets the requirements for a Grade D building paper as
required under NFPA 101 Life Safety Code (Class A Material).

PINKWRAP HOUSE WRAP BY OWENS CORNING
PINKWRAP® is typically installed over wood or insulating sheathing, and under siding or other exterior coverings, PINKWRAP® house wrap
surrounds your home with a protective barrier
to help seal out energy-robbing leaks and drafts
(air infiltration).
Working hand-in-hand with insulation, which
traps air in tiny pockets to slow the transfer of
heat (thermal control), PINKWRAP® functions like
a windbreaker layered over a thick sweater to
keep your home comfortable, dry, and energy efficient all year long.
RAINDROP HOUSE WRAP BY GREENGUARD
RainDrop® innovative drainage channels keep
water out of the wall system. The channels will
not crimp, collapse, or flatten, ensuring water
will drain no matter how tightly cladding is nailed
to the wall. Because it’s not perforated,
RainDrop
® resists air and water infiltration.
It breathes to allow moisture vapor to escape.
With a high tear resistance and translucent
design, installation is quick and easy with no
job site waste. And it stays UV-stable for several months. It is also an ideal secondary weather
barrier for fiber cement, vinyl, foam-backed siding.
