Revitilisation in Whangamata with IBS OS'Brace RAP

When Hansen Builders & Landscapers took on the job of revitalising the Palm Pacific Motel and Resort in Whangamata, they knew that they wanted a strong and reliable rigid air barrier as a pre-cladding solution.

Having used rigid air barriers in the past and knowing about their advantages and disadvantages, it was quite easy for them to make the switch to IBS OS'Brace RAP once they saw the benefits it offered.

The key features that stood out for Hansen Builders & Landscapers were how IBS OS'Brace RAP is H3.1 treated, very lightweight (weighing from 11.2kg), has super E0 formaldehyde emissions and was the most cost-effective solution.

IBS OS'Brace RAP is an orientated strand board rigid air barrier and structural bracing panel. It replaces traditional building wrap and is cost effective, simple to install, and easy to cut when compared to other market alternatives. IBS OS'Brace RAP is also CodeMark certified to the NZ Building Code.

When it comes to the health and safety of builders, designers and project managers can rest easy knowing that IBS OS'Brace RAP meets both of those needs. It is bonded with super E0 formaldehyde free resin and as the panel is made of wood, there are no harmful carcinogens released when cut. Since the chips are treated during the bonding process, the edges do not need to be retreated when cut. Finally, weighing from a light 11.2kg, the product is a safe one-man-lift, thereby reducing injury from heavy lifting.

IBS OS'Brace RAP also offers bracing elements, reduces heat loss, reduces noise and is delamination resistant.
