THE LIFE OF YOUR NEW DECK! APPLY DECK FLASH BARRIER TO TOP
OF JOISTS TO PROTECT AGAINST WATER DAMAGE
(Click here to purchase Deck Flash Barrier from an online Retailer)
When applied to the top of deck joists,
Deck Flash Barrier creates a waterproof membrane that prevents
wood rot and decay caused by the accumulation of water under the
decking boards. Deck Flash Barrier’s unique asphalt mastic
adhesive self-seals around screws and nails, blocking a primary
pathway for water infiltration into deck joists. By blocking moisture
and preventing wood rot, Deck Flash Barrier maximizes the life
of your new deck.
When Deck Flash Barrier is placed between
ACQ, CA-B, or ACZA treated lumber and metal surfaces, such as galvanized
metal and aluminum, it creates a physical barrier that prevents
the corrosion of the metal surface caused by contact with the chemicals
in treated lumber. It can be used to protect metal flashings and
hangars, at deck plates and sill plates, and anywhere treated lumber
All surfaces to receive Deck Flash
Barrier must be clean, dry, and free from oil, grease, and debris.
If proper adhesion is not being achieved, Deck Flash Barrier can
be attached mechanically with fasteners. Deck Flash Barrier should
be applied when temperatures are 45° F or warmer. In colder
temperatures, or for difficult applications, a construction grade
spray adhesive may be used to improve adhesion.
Cut Deck Flash Barrier
to the proper length. When apply-ing to deck joists, center over
joist. Remove release paper and press in place. Firmly crease and
fold Deck Flash Barrier material over both sides of the joist.
To increase adhesion, roll with a small hand roller. When being
used as an ACQ barrier, Deck Flash Barrier can be applied either
to the wood or metal surface. When over-lapping material end to
end, a minimum two inch overlap is required. When overlapping side
to side, a one inch overlap is required.
- Deck Flash barrier may be slippery.
Do not stand or walk on Deck Flash Barrier during installation.
- When screwing or nailing through
Deck Flash Barrier into treated lumber, it is still necessary
to use approved fasteners.
- Because of the possibility of a
slight odor from Deck Flash Barrier's asphalt mastic adhesive,
do not install where the product is directly exposed to interior
- Deck Flash Barrier is designed to
be covered, and should not be left permanently exposed to direct
