Designed to keep potentially harmful water out of a structure during construction, the new ForceField® Air and Water Barrier System from Georgia-Pacific consists of engineered wood sheathing panels laminated with a proprietary air and water barrier.
The ForceField installation process is a jobsite time-saver compared to typical house wrap installation. Studies have shown a time savings of up to 37% when installing an integrated air and water barrier. There’s no unrolling, fastening or calling in multiple crews to install house wrap; ForceField panels are installed like standard plywood or OSB sheathing panels. Once installed on a structure, the panel joints are taped with ForceField seam tape, which helps prevent air infiltration and leaks.
Together the panels and the seam tape create an integrated air and water barrier system that eliminates the need for house wrap.
Perfect for residential or light commercial applications, ForceField panels are available in 7/16 CAT thickness, and sizes of 4x8, 4x9, and 4x10. ForceField seam tape is currently available in 3 in. x 180 ft. rolls. ForceField comes with a lifetime limited warranty for the homeowner and a two-year pre-installation warranty for the builder.
