All Globe Silicone Vapor Shield Underlayment
Silicone Vapor Shield is an underlayment in a class by itself. It has been tested under various conditions for its permeability and effectiveness for protecting hardwood against moisture.
SVS" has been recognized and given accolades by various hardwood industry associations including Radiant Heat Association and also meets the recommendations of the NWFA.
Silicone Vapor Shield has two sides. One is a matte finish while the other has a smooth surface which allows installers to slide wood planks easily. Silicone Vapor Shield's white paper provides the perfect surface in order to have a clear visible chalk line so that an installer's work can remain
accurate. The SVS underlayment doesn't leave a black residue on hands or walls which keeps the installers and their work area clean.
All of the paper used for Silicone Vapor Shield has been re-purposed for an environmentally safe product made of 100% Recycled contents. Being environmentally responisible is just one way that All Globe is involved in making our Earth safe for generations to come.
Silicone Vapor Shield is far-and-away the best rated underlayment paper for moisture protection. SVS also meets the recommended perm rating guidelines as set forth by the NWFA.
