Overview

Editor's Review: Zip System Gets a Face-Lift

review date: November 8, 2012

The easily recognizable green-for-walls and brown-for-roofs color scheme of Huber’s Zip System sheathing is changing. In an effort to streamline the workflow on a job site, the company is now coloring the surface of these panels based on thickness rather than intended application: green for 7⁄16-in. panels, and brown for 1⁄2-in. and 5⁄8-in. panels. In addition, all the panels will now receive an anti-slip coating, which was done previously only to roof panels. The company says that the cost per panel for the updated products will not change.
