Thermo-Brace®

THE STRONGER AND MORE EFFICIENT SHEATHING SOLUTION

MATCHES OR EXCEEDS THE STRUCTURAL STRENGTH OF OSB

It is easy to assume that heavier and thicker materials have more structural strength. However, when used as sheathing to prevent the framing from racking, the added thickness and weight of a product like OSB does not give it any additional structural strength.

THERMO-BRACE, THE COST SAVING SHEATHING

Thermo-Brace is a thin wall sheathing with a composite core that provides the structural strength required while offering more moisture resistance than OSB.

  • Costs Less Than OSB or ZIP System®
  • Lighter and Easier to Handle, Cut, and Install
  • Includes Air and Moisture Barrier on Both Sides
  • Stable Pricing

A LIGHTWEIGHT, LOWER COST ZIP SYSTEM®

Thermo-Brace sheathing incorporates an air and moisture barrier on both sides to save on labor and material costs, a better alternative to the more expensive ZIP System®.
