Air, Vapor and Water Barrier Products for All Six Sides of the Building Envelope

Garland Aero-Block product line offers solutions for all six sides of the building enclosure

The Garland Aero-Block product line offers solutions for all six sides of the building enclosure.

As the push for more energy-efficient buildings continues, numerous building codes are now including air barrier requirements. To address these changing standards, Garland has engineered a new product line of high-performance solutions that prevent unwanted air, vapor and water from penetrating the building envelope. The Garland Aero-Block product line offers solutions for all six sides of the building enclosure, as well as for gaps in walls or between sections of walls.

This new polymer-modified-asphalt technology is available in three formats. The fluid-applied solvent-based polymer and fluid-applied water-based polymer versions can be applied by brush, spray or roller. There is also a pre-fabricated, self-adhering multi-layer membrane. The entire Aero-Block family create vapor-closed protection, meeting the requirements for a Class I air/vapor barrier.

A companion vapor-open product line, Aero-Perm, will become available later this year. Aero-Perm will offer the same capabilities as Aero-Block systems, while providing permeability to water vapor.
