Rising damp

Dryrod®- Simple to Install, Unrivalled Performance

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.

  • Low-hazard

    Dryrod® Damp-Proofing Rods are solvent free and non-caustic.
