WATER BARRIERS IN FACADES

To ensure the prevention of damage to building structures, it is necessary to install an adequate water barrier. Joints are sealed and waterproofed in facades and buildings to prevent rising damp, condensation and the infiltration of water. EPDM foil is being used more and more to achieve this purpose. This premium material is used to seal around window and door frames, and also to seal cavity walls (as a sustainable alternative to lead flashings).

EPDM against rising damp

Rising damp is easily prevented by applying a water barrier of EPDM strips in the brickwork comprising the foundation or in brickwork that is in contact with the ground. Formally, isolating layers were not installed to prevent rising damp. These days, it is very important to address moisture issues at the design stage of a construction. EPDM strips and an EPDM lead alternative guarantee a sustainable waterproof solution.

Waterproof & airtight

An efficient insulation ensures that, where possible, constructions are built airtight to prevent as much loss of warmth as possible. Gaps and joints must therefore be sealed in full measure. Due to its flexibility, EPDM is the ideal material to seal gaps and joints around window and door frames. It stops draughts, but also prevents damp air from penetrating the joints and the growth of mould.
