Safeguard’s Dryrods take first place for remedial DPCs

  • 11 Mar 2020

Latest figures from Safeguard Europe show Dryrod damp-proofing rods have become the preferred method of remedial damp-proof course delivery among installers.

As well as this, its usage exceeds damp-proofing creams or injected systems for the first time.

Designed to be the quickest, cleanest, simplest and most effective rising damp treatment on the market, BBA-certified Dryrod damp-proofing rods are synthetic rods made from advanced polymers impregnated with a silane/siloxane material that form a DPC in brick, coursed stone and cavity walls.

Developed to guarantee correct damp-proofing delivery each and every time, and unlike any other product on the market, the rods can be installed effectively in highly saturated walls that are very porous and either highly alkaline – such as in new mortar – or with low alkalinity (old mortar).

The rods are also effective regardless whether installed in warm or cold walls – even freezing walls.

Apart from their high-performance, Dryrods also appeal to contractors due to their convenience. The only tool needed is a drill, and installation is simply a case of inserting the 180mm standard-length rods into 12mm holes at 120mm intervals along the mortar courses of the wall being treated.

Not only does this method guarantee deep penetration, but it also delivers the precise dose in each hole, with none of the spillage and mess that can occur with pressure injection systems.

All range of wall thickness can be treated because the rods can be inserted end-to-end or trimmed back, depending on the thickness of the wall.

Backed by Safeguard Europe’s comprehensive technical support, Dryrod is supplied complete with all information needed for a successful installation.

This includes the number and depth of drill holes required for various wall thicknesses and types, together with suggested drilling patterns to treat stretcher bond and Flemish bond brickwork and irregular stone.
