Typar Expands Line

February 11, 2008

StormWrap offers great resistance.

Fiberweb's Typar will introduce the next generation of housewrap–Typar StormWrap at this year’s International Builders’ Show. To demonstrate the effectiveness of StormWrap, the Typar booth (W143) will simulate the Miami-Dade County large missile impact criteria previously performed at Texas Tech University, and for Miami-Dade County approval, where a two-by-four is propelled at 34 mph toward several housewrap products to test their resistance to flying debris penetration. With the help of a pitching machine, visitors can launch baseballs at StormWrap and other leading housewraps to understand which product will meet this stringent code requirement and provide extra protection in extreme weather environments.

Housewrap, in general, is not usually top-of-mind when builders specify impact resistance products, but according to Bob Dahl, business director of Typar Construction Products, StormWrap is a revolutionary product that will help protect against the penetration of flying debris during hurricanes, tornadoes and high winds.
“We have tested StormWrap against one of the harshest building product impact resistance tests in the country and it meets the challenge.  In fact, it’s so revolutionary it is the only weather resistive barrier of its kind to meet this Miami-Dade County requirement as well as Florida building codes, the strictest building codes in the nation for extreme weather,” said MR. Dahl.
