Contoured surface provides added protection by accelerating the drainage rate of water
Building Wrap & Air Barrier Engineered for Superior Performance and Enhanced Drainage

CastlePro NXT DRAIN is a non-perforated building wrap and air barrier featuring a contoured, non-compressible surface to promote enhanced drainage of water away from the wall system. The high-density drainage channels provide superior compression resistance than competitive products, ensuring reliable performance for the most demanding applications. Suitable for use in residential and commercial products.

Performance Features that Make a Difference

Real World Drainage Performance: High-density drain channels can’t be stretched or compressed like competitive products, offering consistent and reliable performance.
Certified Air Barrier: Exceeds requirements of the International Energy Conservation Code.
Highest Level of Vapor Transmission: Allows water vapor to escape at the highest rate to create a healthier wall.
Excellent Water Resistance: Five times the water resistance mandated by ICC-ES criteria.
UV Stable for 120 Days: Engineered to withstand the elements.
Exceeds Building Code Requirements: Compliant with all applicable US codes, including NFPA 285 for mid-rise commercial structures.
Easier to Install: Flexible construction and typical roll sizes makes installation familiare and efficient.
