AIR-SHIELD: Designing for the 21st Century
W. R. MEADOWS is proud to offer the AIR-SHIELD line of sheet-applied air barriers. These self-adhesive membranes are designed to control air leakage and moisture movement in all types of wall assemblies. AIR-SHIELD membranes are strong, durable and remain flexible, even in cold temperatures (see our low-temp products). AIR-SHIELD will not shrink, sag, dry out, crack, or rot, and offers excellent resistance to punctures during installation. The self-gasketing characteristic provides continued protection if penetrated by fasteners.
NEW FROM W. R. MEADOWS – AIR-SHIELD ALUMINUM SHEET MEMBRANE
AIR-SHIELD ALUMINUM SHEET MEMBRANE self-adhering air/vapor and liquid moisture barrier is the newest addition to the wide line of air barrier technology available from W. R. MEADOWS. It is a sheet-applied membrane that is nominally 40 mils thick. The membrane’s controlled thickness is fabricated from aluminum bonded to specially modified asphalt.
Primary applications for AIR-SHIELD ALUMINUM SHEET MEMBRANE include cavity wall and masonry wall construction. The product works equally well as an air and/or vapor barrier on precast concrete, cast-in-place concrete, masonry (concrete block), interior and exterior gypsum board, Styrofoam, primed steel, aluminum mill finish, anodized aluminum, primed galvanized metal, drywall, and plywood.
A key feature of the product is its low permeability, which prevents the transmission of air and inhibits moisture vapor through porous building materials.
