Zip System Gets Some Competition
LP WeatherLogic panels–the latest offering in the world of weather-resistive sheathings–looks surprisingly similar to some familiar building products.
LP’s newest line of sheathing may look familiar to any builder who has worked with Huber’s Zip System sheathing—except, of course, for the change in color. Just released, LP’s WeatherLogic panels (lpcorp.com) are structural sheathing with an integrated WRB—fasten to the framing, tape the joints, and the house is air- and weathertight. Huber has filed a lawsuit claiming that the system infringes on at least seven Huber patents.
