As the latest development in the treatment of rising damp, there are numerous advantages to using Dryrod® Damp-Proofing Rods. They are:
The most effective form of rising damp treatment available
Laboratory tests at Safeguard Europe show that walls treated with Dryrod® Damp-Proofing Rods absorb four times less water than the next best treatment method. Independent testing by the British Board of Agrément (BBA) confirmed our findings.
Extremely quick and simple to install
Simply drill holes into a continuous mortar course, at the recommended depth and spacing, and then insert the damp-proofing rods into the holes. No fuss, no mess, no stress.
No specialist equipment required
There are no pumps or proprietary mastic guns required to install Dryrod® Damp-Proofing Rods. Any normal hammer drill will be appropriate to drill the holes.
Delivers the correct dose every time
The patented Dryrod® delivery system ensures that each rod is dosed with the exact amount of water repellent material required to treat the appropriate thickness of wall.
Proven to work on highly-saturated walls (even up to 95% saturation)
Tests show that Dryrod® Damp-Proofing Rods can even stop rising damp in walls with 95% water saturation. Cheaper damp-proofing creams fail to stop rising damp in these circumstances.
Permanent eradication of rising damp
The active water-repellent ingredient contained within the rods spreads through, and bonds with, the mortar in a wall, providing a permanent solution to rising damp.
No mess to clean up
As the active ingredient is contained within the damp-proofing rods, there is no chance of spillage. All rods come sealed in foil packs of 10, for clean storage.
Dryrod® Damp-Proofing Rods are solvent free and non-caustic.
