Safeguard’s Stormdry gets EST ‘verified status’ for energy savings

  • 25 Oct 2018

Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream from Safeguard Europe has been granted ‘verified’ status by the Energy Saving Trust (EST), in honour of its contribution to improving the energy performance of buildings.

The Energy Saving Trust’s verification scheme offers independent evaluation of performance for energy efficient products.

After considering peer-reviewed scientific papers and the results of extensive long-term testing, the EST awarded the prestigious recognition to Stormdry for its claims to enhance thermal performance of masonry walls.

For instance, tests conducted on solid wall constructions by the University of Portsmouth showed Stormdry treatment of masonry can provide energy savings of up to 29%.

This is achieved by providing a high-level of water repellency, preventing rain penetration of brickwork and keeping walls dry. Bricks have twice the thermal resistance dry than when wet, making them insulate more effectively.

The EST arrived at the following conclusions from its evidence review:

– dry masonry has a lower thermal transmittance than wet

– Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream reduces heat loss through masonry while inhibiting the absorption of water into sandstone, concrete, mortar and bricks – and that, after application, it allows for wet bricks to dry out completely.

Crucial to the high performance of Stormdry – and where it massively exceeds that of inferior competitive products – is the depth of penetration into masonry; and the concentration of active ingredients in the formula.

The product is easily applied by either brush or roller and will cure colourlessly to match the original wall within 12 hours.

Safeguard Europe also provides comprehensive technical support and advice from its highly qualified and experienced staff on Stormdry applications.
