Flexible flashing products developed by the Fortifiber Building Systems Group have set the industry standard for materials that effectively protect windows, doors and other areas of penetration from water intrusion into wall systems. They form an integral element in our complete Moisture Control System for walls. Commencement Bay distributes Fortifiber’s Moistop E-Z Seal, Moistop neXT, Moistop PF and Fortiflash product lines.
Moistop E-Z Seal®
Moistop E-Z Seal is an ultra-high performance self-adhesive flashing that helps produce a perfect finished product. With a strong reinforced polymer membrane coated with a 3 inch self-adhesive strip, Moistop E-Z Seal provides a rock-solid barrier against rain-driven water intrusion – while resisting ripping and tearing in the toughest jobsite conditions. Its adhesive strip provides an incredibly strong bond – the strongest in the industry – ensuring solid integration of the windows and doors with plywood, OSB, aluminum, vinyl and weather-resistive barriers
Moistop PF is the solution of choice when building requirements call for a mechanically-attached flashing product that is unaffected by substrates or job site conditions. Manufactured from a multi-layer composite employing heavy-duty polypropylene woven fabric, and coated on both sides with ultraviolet-resistant polypropylene, the product resists cracking and curling – both before and after installation.
FortiFlash is the premium self-adhesive waterproof flashing membrane for windows. It is also ideally suited for flashing non-roofing horizontal conditions such as pot shelves, parapets, sill pans and recessed windows. Reinforced by a strong cross-laminated high-density polyethylene film, FortiFlash can be installed around protrusions and into the tightest corners without delaminating or tearing. Its self-sealing rubberized asphalt core stays in place in the most punishing weather conditions. Available in 25 MIL at Salmon Bay
FortiFlash Butyl delivers in the most demanding environments, providing a strong self-sealing barrier to protect windows, doors and through-wall penetrations – as well as non-roofing conditions such as recessed windows, sill pans, pot shelves and parapets. The product’s chemical compatibility with most standard sealants. FortiFlash Butyl’s proprietary compound delivers rock solid adhesion at temperatures well below those where other self-adhesive flashing products just won’t stick — while maintaining its protective properties at service temperatures up to 250° F.
Moistop® Corner Shield
Moistop Corner Shield integrates into the wall system to create a seamless barrier in the most vulnerable section of the window installation, the corners. Less costly than sill pans and more user friendly than rigid pieces, Moistop Corner Shield has the flexibility to conform to framing and provide solid protection. The strong polyolefin construction is resistant to job site wear and tear and is manufactured from high grade plastics that are 100% compatible with self-adhesive flashing and membrane products.
Aluminum Kickout Diverters
Heavy-duty, powder-coated aluminum kickout flashing diverter is made from 3003 alloy (0.040” thick), welded to create a strong, permanent, watertight joint that performs better than field-formed kickout that is sealed with caulking. Will not deteriorate like plastic flashing or breakdown due to alkali hydroxides from concrete materials. Available in Left-Hand and Right-Hand orientations.
