Dörken Systems Inc., introduces a new WRB and air barrier solution for open-joint cladding systems that meets the industry’s most stringent standards. Offered alongside DELTA®-FASSADE S, the new DELTA®-FASSADE SA is a four-layer, self-adhered air- and water-resistive barrier with industry-leading UV stability to ensure product performance and longevity.
Open-joint cladding design elements are being applied by the world’s most advanced building professionals designing some of the most cutting-edge buildings. However, they require extra attention to manage the infiltration of exterior weather. While enhancing the visual aesthetics of a building, this design can expose structural components within the wall to wind, water, and sun, ultimately jeopardizing building performance if not properly protected.
Offering a hybrid between the industry-proven DELTA®-VENT SA and DELTA®-FASSADE S, new DELTA®-FASSADE SA has two outer layers that are made of a high-strength, spun-bonded polypropylene (PP) fabric thermally bonded to a highly vapor permeable, watertight polymeric middle layer, along with a highly UV-resistant acrylic coating on top.
"At Dörken, we take pride in responding to unique industry needs with superior-performing solutions," explained Marcus Jablonka, Vice President of Operations and Marketing at Dörken Systems Inc. "By expanding the DELTA®- FASSADE product family, architects and builders now have more choices when it comes to protecting their open-joint cladding systems, no matter how they build.”
With the introduction of new DELTA®-FASSADE SA, Dörken now offers the full open-joint solution for buildings. Leveraging the extensive research, trialing, and testing that went into the development of DELTA®-FASSADE S, DELTA®-FASSADE SA provides the same superior ability to protect buildings, resist UV rays, maintain the integrity of the insulation underneath, and complement any open-joint cladding design.
Self-adhering DELTA®-FASSADE SA air barrier is completely unique for the market. Specifically, DELTA®-FASSADE SA is suitable for:
