To address new building code requirements, Sto Corp. has developed StoEnergy Guard, an integrated cavity wall solution that is used for protection underneath multiple cladding types, including stone, siding, stucco and more.
StoEnergy Guard integrates a fluid-applied waterproof air barrier, sheathing joint and rough opening protection, proven drainage technology, and approved continuous insulation into a flexible system that can meet individual climate zone and building code requirements.
Designed to protect the entire building, StoEnergy Guard offers improved air quality and thermal comfort as well as resistance to mold and mildew. Its StoGuard component offers an air-barrier membrane that bonds directly to sheathing to resist air and water penetration. The Sto DrainScreen mat facilitates moisture escape between the protected substrate and cladding by allowing water that reaches the back of the cladding to drain to the outside, and it also helps speed the drying of moisture-laden air.
