HydroGap drains moisture from wall assemblies at least two times faster and removes 100 times more bulk water than standard housewrap. The product combines a water-resistant barrier and drainage system into one application. It comprises a tri-laminate substrate, with the moisture barrier protected between two non-woven layers. This composition creates a product with superior strength and water hold out vs. competitive products. The patent-pending spacer design on the housewrap surface creates a 1 mm gap between the structure’s sheathing and cladding materials, thereby promoting drainage that is twice as fast as other drainable housewraps. The design also allows for the housewrap to be installed in any direction while maintaining its positive drainage capability. It provides strong enhanced drainage around window sills, according to the manufacturer.
