Protecto Tape Flashing Tape


Protecto Tape Flashing Tape is a self-adhering waterproofing membrane used for flashing parapet and balustrade caps. The tape provides a base to which most plaster or texture coat finishing systems are able to be applied, creating a monolithic finish that conceals the tape from view.


Protecto Tape Flashing Tape has been appraised for use as a waterproofing membrane tape within the following scope:

  • On buildings within the scope of NZBC Acceptable Solution E2/AS1 paragraph 1.1 with regards to building height and floor plan area.
  • On parapets and balustrades that have a minimum slope of 10° (1 in 4).
  • With proprietary EIFS and texture-coated fibre-cement cladding systems.
  • Over fibre-cement, polystyrene or timber substrates.
  • As a sealing ‘bandage' over fixing blocks in external walls.

Proprietary EIFS and texture-coated fibre-cement cladding systems have not been assessed and are outside the scope of this Appraisal.
