The 211-foot-tall high-rise development situated at 22 Chapel Street was an exciting opportunity to build a towering structure to complement downtown Brooklyn's revitalization. Since the building needs to withstand the extremes of New York weather—including punishing rain and snow—a superior weather barrier system was a must. That's when Georgia-Pacific's most innovative water-resistive barrier/air barrier (WRB/AB) solution, DensElement® Barrier System, answered the call. Take a look at how the DensElement® Barrier System with DensDefy™ Accessories became the perfect WRB-AB solution for this 20 story high-rise.
