For five years Masons’ Barricade Building Wrap has been one of the most popular building wraps on the New Zealand market.

To meet demand, Masons have developed this product even further by producing a breathable, composite building wrap that is fire rated and suitable for all frame and cladding systems, with or without cavity. 

Here’s where you would use Barricade FR building wrap:

  • Where a fire retardant wrap is required.
  • Where a strong, durable wrap is needed – including areas zoned as “very high” wind (NZS 3604) and “extra high” over-rigid wall underlays.
  • With any cladding system – direct fixed and non-direct fixed, absorbent and non-absorbent.
  • With timber or steel framing.
  • As a non-rigid backing for stucco plaster.
  • As part of a system with Mason’s All weather window flashing tape 40 BELOW, that adheres in all weather conditions.
