AdvanTech Flooring – Strength & Stiffness

STRENGTH AND STIFFNESS WHERE YOU NEED IT MOST.

Industry-Leading Performance AdvanTechÂŽ flooring brings together a superior combination of bending strength, stiffness and fastener holding power so you can get the most from your flooring system. The result is a solid-feeling floor that can enhance the quality of the entire home.

HOW EXCEPTIONAL STRENGTH IS ENGINEERED INTO EVERY BOARD

1

High Wood Density More wood is packed into each panel of AdvanTech engineered flooring. This produces an ultra-dense, ultra-strong panel that securely grips fasteners.

Advanced Resins and Blending

2 3 4

A sophisticated blending process coats every wood strand with advanced resins, ensuring a consistent and exceptionally strong bond throughout every square inch of the panel.

Optimal Wood Strand Orientation Wood strand orientation is carefully engineered and tightly controlled to achieve maximum strength, stiffness and fastener holding power.

Tight Thickness Tolerance Precision sanding on both the top and bottom surfaces produces a consistent thickness so every panel lays flat and installs easily.

AdvanTech flooring has higher design strength and stiffness properties than commodity OSB and plywood. These values are published in ESR-1785 and can be viewed at www.icc-es.org. Why ESR-1785 matters: - AdvanTech is the only flooring that is required to be stronger and stiffer than code minimums. - Any panel can claim it’s better, but our ESR report proves we’re the Flat Out Best™ . - Maintaining an ESR requires performance and consistency. That's dependability you can count on with AdvanTech flooring.

AdvanTech Flooring – Moisture Resistance

SUPERIOR MOISTURE RESISTANCE DURING AND AFTER CONSTRUCTION.

Moisture-Related Peace of Mind The average jobsite receives rain three times during construction. And other factors such as high humidity, snow and ice can expose your projects to even more moisture. Rest assured, AdvanTech® flooring’s moisture resistance helps prevent headaches such as warping, swelling and delamination – leaving your finished floors smooth, flat and quiet.

HOW IT’S SPECIALLY ENGINEERED TO RESIST MOISTURE LIKE NO OTHER

1 2 3 4

Highly Compressed Material High panel density helps reduce the rate of water absorption into the panel, even under harsh weather conditions.

Moisture-Resistant Resins Advanced resins react chemically with the natural moisture in the wood, creating a highly moisture resistant substance similar to polyurethane.

Protection Throughout Entire Panel Every wood strand is coated with advanced moisture-resistant resins that provide superior protection even along freshly cut edges.

Industry-Leading Edge Sealant For added protection, every edge is coated with edge sealant to help prevent swelling during long-term storage or exposure to the elements.

ZIP System Sheathing – Moisture Protection

KEEP MOISTURE PROBLEMS OUT OF YOUR WALLS.

ZIP System® Sheathing installs without the hassles of house wrap and felt. Since the weather barrier is integrated directly onto the sheathing panels, it doesn’t tear or blow off – even when exposed to harsh wind driven rain tests. This built-in barrier also helps eliminate the risk of water becoming trapped between building wrap and sheathing. Plus, the system seals tightly to provide a durable, rigid air barrier to reduce unwanted air leakage and increase energy efficiency. That’s performance we back with a 30-year system limited warranty and 180-day exposure guarantee.

Engineered For Optimal Breathability The ZIP System® Sheathing overlay protects against water intrusion while providing an optimal permeance level (12-16 perms) to allow panels to properly dry out.

22

ZIP System Sheathing – Air Protection

STOP AIR LEAKAGE AND MAXIMIZE ENERGY EFFICIENCY.

Air leakage is one of the most significant causes of energy loss, because it works against expensive heating and cooling equipment by disrupting inside temperature. By forming a continuous, rigid air barrier, ZIP System® Roof and Wall Sheathing reduces air leakage, while outperforming traditional sealing methods involving house wrap. Why ZIP System® Sheathing By simply taping the panel seams with ZIP System™ Tape, the system effectively seals the building envelope, decreasing unwanted air leakage into and out of the home. ZIP System® panels are structural PS-2 rated panels with permanently integrated protective barriers. They’re engineered to withstand the demands of the jobsite and provide long-term performance within the building structure. That’s superior performance we ensure through extreme tests.

A Tighter Seal That Protects R-Value Air leakage lessens the ability of insulation to resist heat flow, reducing its effective thermal resistance (R-value). By eliminating gaps in the building envelope for a tighter seal, ZIP System® Sheathing better protects the wall system and prevents air leakage from degrading R-value.


23

See What You Could Save Less energy consumption and lower utility bills are key factors in today’s housing market. ZIP System® Sheathing can play a key role in achieving both. Visit our online map to see estimated annual energy savings in a city near you. ZIPsystem.com/energyefficiency

Keep Up With Changing Energy Codes Energy codes are changing faster than ever, and ZIP System® Sheathing is designed to meet these increasingly stringent requirements: - Current International Energy Codes require an air barrier to prevent air leakage through the building envelope (IECC Section 202). - Compared to 2009 code editions, when 7 air changes per hour (ACH) were acceptable in any climate, certain climate zones now require 3 or 5 ACH in the 2012 code edition. A 'blower door test' that measures ACH will also become mandatory to verify code compliance.

Sustainability and Green Building Programs

A LEGACY OF PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT.

Over the years, Huber Engineered Woods has developed a wide range of sustainable practices that help us do our part to protect and preserve the world’s natural resources. Our long-standing approach to the environment can be summed up by a simple phrase: Leave a light footprint. With this in mind, we’ve developed a number of environmental initiatives and product solutions that include: • Providing over 2.5 million seedlings annually to private landowners to help them practice sustainable forestry. • Transforming wood waste into fuel for manufacturing facilities, thus utilizing 100% of wood resources. • Consuming wood from small, fast-growing trees, one of nature’s most rapidly renewable resources. • Employing state-of-the-art environmental control equipment and strict control standards at every one of our plants. • Funding research on initiatives involving forest health and productivity, water quality, fish and wildlife and landscape/ecosystem management and biodiversity.


29

Green Building Programs and Credits Engineered wood products are gaining widespread recognition as being among the highest performing and greenest building materials. Huber products are often eligible for points in green certification programs. In general, points can be awarded in the following areas: • Use of certified wood and engineered wood products • Use of local and regionally harvested and manufactured materials • Use of energy-efficient products or construction practices • Use of water-resistive barriers and proper moisture management practices
