Damp Proof Membrane - 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.

Are robust, durable with a life expectancy greater than 50 years
Are quick and easy to fit
Have an optional mesh face that provides a key for plasterboard adhesive or cement render
Are available with; stand-off' stud sizes ranging from 2mm to 8mm
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.
