Garland Launches New Barrier Suite

More items for Building Envelope

Comment | More

Cleveland-based Garland has developed a new line of products designed to prevent unwanted air, vapor and water from penetrating the building envelope.

The new Garland Aero-Block suite offers solutions for all six sides of the building enclosure, as well as for gaps in walls or between sections of walls, according to the company.

The Garland Aero-Block line creates vapor-closed protection, meeting the requirements for a Class I air/vapor barrier, according to the company.

The new line comes as the push for more energy-efficient buildings continues and building codes are increasingly including air barrier requirements, Garland relates.

Three Formats Available

Garland Aero-Block is a new polymer-modified asphalt technology, available in three formats.

The fluid-applied, solvent-based polymer and water-based polymer versions can be applied by brush, spray, or roller.

There is also a pre-fabricated, self-adhering, multi-layer membrane.

The entire Aero-Block family creates vapor-closed protection, meeting the requirements for a Class I air/vapor barrier, the company says.

Additional Features, Companion Product

“These [new] barriers help minimize the potential for mold growth or corrosion within wall assemblies,” according to Tom Stuewe, Garland’s product manager for the coatings and air-barrier product lines.

“They also protect building occupants from pollutants, second-hand smoke, cooking odors, noise, and pollen."

A companion vapor-open product line, Aero-Perm, will become available later in 2014, the company says, adding that Aero-Perm will offer the same capabilities as Aero-Block systems, while providing permeability to water vapor.

The Garland Company Inc. produces high-performance roofing and building maintenance products for the commercial, industrial and institutional markets.
