This CLAF® mesh material improves the tensile and tear strength of the Commericial housewrap product, while also providing a drainage solution exclusive to JX ALTA™ products. The CLAF® mesh we use in every roll of Commercial product does more than just increase roll strength and tear resistance - it also creates a geometric surface plane, across which water and rain flow off with ease.
The raised strands in the CLAF® mesh drain water in all directions; a unique and effective solution to a problem that’s been inconveniencing industry leaders for decades. JX ALTA™ is the only manufacturer of commercial housewraps that offers built-in drainage solutions in every roll of product.
JX ALTA™ Commercial housewraps are translucent and do not tear during construction in the ways that other housewrap products do - all due to the CLAF® mesh design. The JX ALTA™ Commercial product is easy to install. If you’re seeking to avoid the rips, tears, holes and installation challenges that come with other commercial housewraps, look no further.
As a builder of residential and commercial buildings in Charleston, SC, we are faced with seasonal rains, high temperatures, high humidity and heavy air conditioning use during the long summer months... When we stick frame a new house in the Low Country we look for several features in our Moisture Barrier... With the unique vertical diamond surface of the Alta Drainable house wrap, the moisture behind the siding is allowed to drain and dissipate providing a more breathable construction. The Alta product is one more element in our battle against the elements and is our house wrap of choice.
