DriStud Wall Wrap and Roofing Underlays Engineered to Breathe

Pre-cladding components — building wraps, roofing underlays and tapes, play a crucial role in all buildings.

Excess moisture generated within busy living spaces through cooking, bathing, washing and drying has to go somewhere. The humid air usually ends up at ceiling level, or when this is permeable it ends up in the attic space. Roof underlays with a higher moisture vapour transmission rate (MVTR) ensure more moisture vapour can permeate out to ventilation. DriStud roofing underlays have one of the lowest water vapour resistance and absorbent layer undersides (passed driptest recommended by BRANZ) in the market. By using DriStud, moisture management within roof spaces can be accomplished with peace of mind.

There are many products in the NZ market that seem to be similar, but these products are designed to perform in specific spaces. For example, not all wall wraps can go on gable ends, and behind non-absorbent claddings. Some roofing underlays cannot be used under skillion roofs.

DriStud Wall Wrap and Roof Underlays are engineered to outperform all the performance parameters required by NZ Building Code. These are engineered to breathe for NZ weather conditions.
