Ecoply® Barrier is a 7mm thick structural plywood panel which is coated on the face and edges using an advanced polyester powder coating process.

It provides a weathertight rigid air barrier for drained and vented cavity systems outside the building frame, effectively replacing traditional building wrap in the cavity while providing structural bracing and forming a strong secondary line of defence against moisture penetration into the building envelope.

Ecoply Barrier installs quickly– just fasten the panels and tape the seams – and can potentially save 2-4 weeks off the total house build time by allowing a faster building close in.

Ecoply Barrier is available from all leading Building Merchants.
