ZIP System Sheathing and Tape. Revolutionizing the way to tight, dry building enclosures.

When it comes to durability, efficiency and resiliency, there is one building enclosure system that has transformed wood-framed building envelopes. Created as an alternative to the traditionally used wood sheathing with housewrap, ZIP System® sheathing and tape strikes the balance between efficient installation and long-term water and air management.

A Structural 1 rated engineered wood panel with an integrated water-resistive barrier, it eliminates the need to install an additional weather barrier. Completed with advanced acrylic ZIP System™ tape at panel seams and flashing details, the system delivers a continuous water and rigid air barrier in a simplified method. Code-compliant as an air and water barrier for roof and wall assemblies, the system is also backed by a 180-Day Exposure Guarantee and 30-Year Limited Warranty.

This streamlined approach for weatherized roof and wall systems helps keep schedules on track and reduces the risk of repair delays.

Benefits include:

  • Speed & Ease of Installation – ZIP System creates a quick and simple two-step installation that eliminates the need for housewrap and felt.
  • Continuous Air Barrier – Taped seams form a tight barrier against air leakage for a more energy-efficient building envelope.
  • Integrated Water-Resistive Barrier – Helps protect against water intrusion while still allowing the panels to properly dry.
  • Structural Durability – ZIP System panels are available with a Structural 1 rating[1], so you can get shear strength to meet seismic and high-wind-zone requirements.
