Ecoply Barrier effectively replaces traditional building wrap in the cavity while providing structural bracing, and forms a strong secondary line of defence against moisture penetration into the building envelope.
Ecoply Barrier is suitable for use in both residential and commercial buildings and consists of a 7mm thick CCA treated structural plywood panel which is coated on the face and edges using a polyester powder coating process for increased sheet durability and protection from moisture penetration.
Ecoply Barrier meets the NZ Building Code requirements for rigid underlays as outlined in Section 9.1.4, the performance requirements of Table 23 of E2/ AS1 and has been tested for wind speed exceeding Extra High wind zone as defined in NZS 3604.
Testing has been completed to provide solutions for buildings outside the scope of NZS 3604, contact CHH Woodproducts for further information.
The Ecoply Barrier system is BRANZ appraised for use as a rigid sheathing and temporary weather-protecting sheathing on timber framed buildings.
Appraisal No.827 .
Ecoply Barrier panels are engineered to allow the wall system to breathe and dry out, while also preventing the intrusion of exterior moisture. Once the full system has been installed, the system provides a lasting protective barrier.
