Barriers that Keep Moisture Out
Damp proof membrane is a flat polythene sheet and it serves as a physical damp proofing course that is incorporated into a structure to stop rising damp in walls and floors.
Profiled cavity drain membranes have an ‘egg-box-like’ shape to form a continuous air gap or drainage channel; they are often used to control dampness in existing buildings.
Air-gap membranes are particularly useful in projects that require waterproofing of cellar walls and floors, protecting wall sufaces against lateral damp penetration and allowing the immediate reinstatement of plastered finishes following treatment of rising damp problems.
