Window & Door Protector is a self-adhesive membrane that eliminates drafts and water leaks.
- 25 mil thick self-adhesive membrane composed of elastomeric bitumen and trilaminate woven polyethylene
- Easy-to-remove silicone treated release sheet (split-back) on the self-adhesive side
Use it to waterproof wood, brick, concrete, and metal surfaces and to ensure a continuous air/vapor barrier on the following structures:
- Joints between waterproofing membranes installed without overlaps
- Eliminates drafts and water leaks
- Resists strong winds and gusts
- Superior adhesion
- Self-sealing around nails and screws
- Red print pattern for high visibility during inspection
- Consistent thickness
- Can be sprayed with polyurethane foam
- Individually wrapped rolls; clean and easy to install
- UV resistant
- Requires no special tools
- Remains flexible at low temperatures
- Meets ASTM standards

•Apply to clean, dry surface free of oil, grease or residue.
•Use a sample to verify adhesion on the substrate prior to installation. If superior adhesion is required, apply a coat of Grip-Rite™ Primer prior to installing the membrane.
•Use of Grip-Rite primer over surfaces such as OSB, concrete, gypsum or fibreglass structural panels is recommended. Note: Primers take longer time to dry if installed near the prescribed installation temperatures. Plan ahead to allow enough time for primer to dry prior to installing Grip-Rite Window & Door Protector.
•Adhesion of Grip-Rite Window & Door Protector is typically satisfactory over caulks and sealants such as polyurethane, silicones or butyl, provided they are fully cured. Note: It is recommended to test adhesion to surfaces and coatings prior to full application of the membrane.
•Cover Grip-Rite Window & Door Protector with a finishing material immediately after installation.
•Polyurethane may be sprayed over Grip-Rite Window & Door Protector. Note: Membrane should be previously mechanically fastened to the substrate using a termination bar to junctions, window or door frames, endings, and on the perimeter of the building prior to installation.
•Minimum application temperature: 14°F
