saveBOARD exterior rigid air barrier is a permeable, cost effective rigid air barrier for use in residential to multi-story construction. Designed for use in Extra High wind zones and in specific engineering design projects exposed to high wind pressure. Finished with an external moisture resistant Fiberglass facing material; it is an alternative to traditional building underlays.

 

It allows builders the ability of close in a building sooner to begin interior fit out, along with additional noise and insulation properties. The fit out can be started independently of the exterior rain screen minimising potential delays to the project.
