VaproShield's Two Component Air Barrier System has received the 2016 Beyond Green Award of Merit for a High-Performance Innovation by the Sustainable Buildings Industry Council (SBIC).

A program of the National Institute of Building Sciences, the Beyond Green Awards recognize innovations that demonstrate: sustainability, accessibility, aesthetics, cost-effectiveness, functionality, productivity, historical sensitivity, safety and security.

"Prior to the development of VaproShield's Two Component Air Barrier System, there had been notable challenges in the construction industry," said Phil Johnson, VaproShield Managing Partner. "As codes began requiring the installation of continuous air barrier systems contractors failed to account for additional labor required to install a continuous air barrier, resulting in overages and improper installations -people were demanding a solution, and we felt up to the challenge."

VaproShield brought energy savings for the life of the building, saved contractors up to 50 percent on installation, eliminated VOC exposure, and ensured a building envelope has a high drying capacity (50+ perm rating).

VaproShield received their award at the Beyond Green Awards Luncheon, held during The National Institute of Building Sciences Fifth Annual Conference and Expo: Building Innovation 2017, in Washington, D.C.
