Designing a building with open-joint cladding can be risky. Much of the insulation on an open-joint cladding design is exposed to the elements, including wind washing, UV, and rain. That significantly compromises building protection and performance, allowing air and water leakage that reduces efficiency, occupant comfort, and building life.
Protect your open-joint cladding design.
To ensure your open-joint cladding design is protected, use DELTA®-FASSADE S. It provides all the moisture, wind, and UV protection you need, so you can design with complete confidence.
DELTA®-FASSADE S is a UV-stable, water-resistant barrier designed specifically for open-joint cladding designs. It is a highly permeable, watertight membrane with an acrylic coating that ensures weatherproof performance that won’t break down in any environment.
Reliable wind, moisture, and UV protection.
The advanced ability of DELTA®-FASSADE S to reduce wind washing of insulation also provides energy efficiency, helping maintain R-values and reducing heat loss. And the matte black color gives the building appearance additional depth and dimension, adding to its overall aesthetic appeal.
As the first water-resistive barrier of its kind, DELTA®-FASSADE S is well known for its outstanding ability to protect buildings. It is still the only UV-resistant barrier for open-joint cladding that has been tested to and passed ICC-AC38. With DELTA®-FASSADE S, you can create open-joint cladding designs knowing your building will be completely protected.
