ZIP System wall panels from Huber Engineered Woods are now available in longer lengths — 97-1/18”, 109-1/8” and 121-1/8” — designed specifically for high-wind regions. The ZIP System is a three-in-one technology that is code recognized as a structural wall panel, moisture barrier and air barrier. The longer lengths allow builders to lock the top and bottom plates to provide a continuous load path. The panels also come in a standard, 4x8’ size, in both 7/16” and ½” thicknesses, as well as 9’ and 10’ lengths.
