Masons offer a complete product range that will protect building frames from water and damp. "Using a complete system from one recognised supplier is vital when the demands from the council and NZBC regarding product warranty documentation and appraisals are higher than ever," says Trent Mason, Director of Masons.
The Building Wrap
The building wraps are 'Masons Barricade' and the commercially rated 'Masons FR1'‚ a very strong, fire rated building wrap. Masons wraps are at the forefront of building wraps in the building industry. These wraps are available through major hardware merchant chains. Both Masons building wraps hold an appraisal and are acknowledged and accepted by local building councils throughout New Zealand. Masons is now the preferred supplier for half of the top 10 building companies in New Zealand.
The Complete System
The complete damp proof system includes polyethylene concrete underlay, DPC, building wrap, wrap strapping, bituminous or butyl flashing tapes and PEF backing rod.
NB: This system can be extended for either an exterior plaster system consisting of three choices of substrate panel with a mineral or a fully flexible acrylic plaster system, or the comprehensive Masons brick reinforcement products for brick veneer such as Masons BrickTies and Masons BrickLock.
Single Supplier Benefits
- Minimises compatibility issues: Masons flashing tapes have endured specific intensive testing to prove their superior adhesion qualities and compatibility with Masons wraps.
- Responsibility: A multi-supplier environment can have users going from one supplier to another to get a problem resolved. With Masons there is only one phone number and one contact — it's just easier dealing with one supplier.
- Additional systems: Masons is the only supplier in NZ of both building products and plaster systems, giving users a one supplier warranty to enclose the building frame. Additionally Masons are experts in brick reinforcement.
