Garland’s air barriers help control the movement of air through the building envelope, resulting in healthier, more comfortable and energy efficient buildings.

Garland’s new Aero-Perm line of permeable air and water barriers are designed to control the movement of air through the building envelope, reducing condensation, moisture development and energy loss in the wall assembly. The Aero-Perm line of products forms a flexible blanket of protection over the exterior wall assembly, helping to create healthier and more energy efficient buildings.

Aero-Perm WB is a fluid-applied, water-based barrier that allows moisture vapors to pass through porous building materials, reducing the chances for mold growth in the wall assembly. It also cures to a tough, flexible membrane capable of accommodating building movement while controlling air leakage into and out of conditioned living spaces. Aero-Perm WB air leakage rates test below detectable limits, providing superior air leakage resistance and promoting energy efficiency. Aero-Perm WB can be used as an air, vapor and water control layers in rainscreen assemblies.

Garland also offers a self-adhering version, Aero-Perm SA. It is a pre-fabricated, self-adhering air and water barrier membrane specifically engineered for vertical air and water barrier applications where the membrane is protected from long-term ultra-violet exposure. Aero-Perm SA will adhere to metal, concrete and masonry, OSB, plywood and exterior gypsum boards.

According to Charbel Boulos, P.Eng., president of Garland Canada Inc., “Air leakage into or out of a building is proven to contribute to condensation, moisture development and energy loss in the wall assembly. Garland’s air barriers help control the movement of air through the building envelope, resulting in healthier, more comfortable and energy efficient buildings.”
