Here’s Why You Should Consider Stainless Steel Wall Flashing

In building construction, especially commercial facilities, the threat of water penetration & moisture in the walls is always present. In commercial facilities where hygiene is top priority, this can spell doom. Is there a way to guard against potential damage?

In this article, we’ll give you a definition of wall flashing & break down an IMC product that can be of great help. Let’s start.

Wall Flashing – Building Resistance

First, it should be noted that flashing can take many material forms such as aluminum, copper, zinc, etc. Also, flashing can be installed on roofs, sills, channels & even pipes. For this article, we will mainly focus on stainless steel flashing for walls.

So, what is it exactly? In the simplest terms, wall flashing is a thin strip of water-resistant material (in this case, stainless steel) that is installed to direct water flow away from the facility in the case of a water leakage.

Wall flashing can be installed in a number of areas such as over windows/doors, at the bottom of walls or points of structural support. The fact of the matter is a building’s interior space isn’t a continuous surface. It has intersections & sudden terminations. All of these spaces can be vulnerable to water leakages, which is why wall flashing is imperative to have in your lineup.

Wall flashing also has the secondary effect of reducing indoor mold that can occur from leaking water. Mold prevention leads to a more hygienic environment & better protection for your building.
