What Is Trex Protect?

Trex Protect is a non-skid, self-adhesive deck protection tape that is designed to shield the tops of joists, rim joists, bearers and ledger board from moisture that can lead to the development of rot and timber decay and the loosening of deck screws and fasteners.

Trex Protect works on horizontal and vertical surfaces and is applied as a “cap” (vs. wrapping), which allows the timber to breathe. This butyl-based, self-adhesive tape is superior to asphalt-based joist tape and bearer tape because it won’t bleed, dry out as quickly, or curl up and hold water. As a result, it acts as a moisture barrier between timber and galvanized metal commonly used in construction hardware.

Trex Protect Joist Tape and Bearer Tape have a non-skid surface making it easier and safer to walk across during construction. Available in two widths – 50 mm x 20 m for joists and 100 mm x 20 m for bearers. Trex Protect is a simple and cost-effective solution to combating the damaging effects of both Mother Nature and Father Time.
