Most panels come in 6’, 8’, or 10’ sections, in heights ranging from approximately 8” to 18” and thicknesses ranging from 1/2” to 1”.

NovaWrap: Building Wrap that Out Performs the Competition A building wrap like NovaWrap Aspire is a critical element in the building envelope system which is the physical separation between the interior and exterior of a building, just like a jacket provides you protection on a wet or windy day. Installed behind the exterior cladding, NovaWrap reduces both air and water infiltration into the building envelope preventing drafts and water damage. The material science of the coating enables NovaWrap to be breathable, allowing water vapour to escape should it get into a wall system, but still act as a barrier against air infiltration. Unlike Grade D or felt building papers, NovaWrap does not absorb water, is much stronger, and is UV resistant.
