Add Built-in Safety with a Fire Retardant Membrane

Tyvek® FireCurb® Housewrap is a fire retardant membrane for commercial and residential buildings that uses new, patented technology.

DuPont™ Tyvek® FireCurb® Housewrap is a lightweight, advanced, fire retardant membrane that self-extinguishes when ignited. It uses a halogen-free flame retardant coating to reduce the formation of droplets and smoke with minimal environmental impact.

Setting a New Standard for Protection

Tyvek® FireCurb® Housewrap takes the airtight and watertight yet vapour-open breather membranes of Tyvek® membranes and adds flame retardancy properties that can significantly increase building safety. A flame retardant membrane can help slow or prevent the spread of flames, improving evacuation time for occupants and also helping to increase the fire rating of wall elements. Suitable for use in all building types, from bungalows to high-rises, Tyvek® FireCurb® Housewrap offers an outstanding long-term protection solution you can trust.
