Ecoply® Barrier is a building solution which delivers a rigid air barrier and structural bracing for strong, safe, weathertight buildings.

Rigid air barrier systems use a solid substrate, combined with a tape system to block air flow and prevent air pressure and water infiltrating the building from the outside. Cost-effective and simple to install, Ecoply Barrier brings comfort, reassurance and security to your living environment.

Ecoply Barrier offers a true system approach to creating a rigid air barrier, with all components specifically designed to work together. Engineered plywood panel is sealed with a unique powder coating which, when used with Ecoply Barrier Tapes, forms a moisture-resistant barrier, eliminating the need for flexible building wrap.

Ecoply Barrier is an H3.2 CCA-treated structural plywood panel sealed on the face and edges using an advanced polyester coating process. Ecoply Barrier includes specially designed sealing tapes to provide a weathertight rigid air barrier for drained and vented cavity systems outside the building frame, effectively replacing traditional building wrap in the cavity.

It provides structural bracing and forms a strong secondary line of defence against moisture penetration into the building envelope (the primary defence being the exterior cladding).

Made in New Zealand and distributed by Carter Holt Harvey Plywood.
