Advantages over traditional treatments

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
  • Studies performed by our laboratory at Safeguard Europe Ltd show that walls treated with DRYROD® Damp-Proofing Rods absorb 4 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Low-hazard
  • DRYROD®Damp-Proofing Rods are solvent free and non-caustic.
