Damp Proof Membranes
Made from recycled polythene material, this strong, PIFA standard and BBA (British Board of Agrement) accredited damp proof membrane comes in a choice of two standard gauges, 1000 gauge (250 Micron thick) and 1200 gauge (300 Micron). PIFA is the trade body who represent the Plastic and Industrial Films Industry.
Damp Proof Membrane provides a barrier for moisture- usually used within building foundations, it can also be used for a range of other damp proofing applications.
The 1000 gauge is fully compliant with the minimum standards for damp proof membranes within the building regulations. The 1200 gauge is a more durable membrane intended for applications that will place more wear and tear on the membrane.
All our Polythene Damp Proof Membranes are fully compliant to UK Building Regulations. They are subjected to rigorous tests and can be used in any situation where a Damp Proof Membrane is required. The membranes themselves are completely impermeable and will stop any moisture from penetrating into the structure through the foundations.
Our DPM is often used for other purposes, including cover, protection and repair sheets on site.
