A Breakthrough Innovation: The ZIP System
Another energy efficient feature that we offer with every home is Huber ZIP System Sheathing and Tape. For years, homes had always been built the same way until Huber Engineered Woods introduced the ZIP System. This system is truly one-of-a-kind. It's a structural roof and wall system with built-in energy-efficient barriers that keep moisture out and reduces air leakage, while still allowing panels to properly dry.
Key Features of the ZIP System
Enhanced Thermal Resistance
ZIP System sheathing is a code recognized wood structural sheathing panel with built-in weather protection, providing unmatched strength and durability.
Built-in vapor permeable water-resistive barrier eliminates the hassles of house wrap and felt. This system is engineered for enhanced drainage of bulk water and optimal permeability to allow water vapor to pass through and allow drying.
The sheathing and tape form a tight barrier against unwanted air leakage, for a durable building envelope that offers energy efficiency.
ZIP System tape with a specially engineered, high performance acrylic adhesive bonds with the panels for a permanent protective seal.
The ZIP System provides unified protection, a 40% faster construction time, and simpler installation. This revolutionary roof and wall system is the ultimate game-changer in home and commercial construction.
