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.

Twistfix Damp Proof Membranes feature:

  • Isolate plastered and decorated finishes from damp walls and salt contaminated masonry
  • 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.

Fix Mesh- faced Damp Proof Membrane Systems in 4 Easy Steps

  • Unroll membrane and spread tightly along the wall, bending it around corners where necessary
  • Drill 8mm anchorage holes through the membrane and into the wall
  • Secure the membrane to the wall by knocking plastic fixing plugs into the holes
  • Tape membrane edges and finish with dot and dab plaster­board, tiling or render
