Insulated Damp-Proof Coursing – the Best of Both WorldsOctober 13, 2016
Are you doing a new build or an extension? Or maybe a refurbishment of doors and windows? You’ve obviously thought of the horizontal damp-proof course, but have you considered the need for vertical insulation where the cavity is closed?
There can be a problem of cold gathering around window and door openings in traditional cavities. This can lead to condensation, which in turn can involve staining and mould growth – all due to a lack of insulation.
TBS stocks Dacatie DP3 Insulated DPC, from Quantum Profiles. Building Regulations (England and Wales) require the back edge of the frame to be positioned 30 mm in from the inside edge of the outer brickwork.
Dacatie Insulated DPC is easy to install as the brickwork is constructed. No special fixings needed – and no difficult installation techniques. You can cut it easily with a knife or trowel, and you can overlap it without no loss of efficiency. It’s CFC and HFC free as well.
So, for an economical and energy-efficient answer to insulating cavities, look no further than Dacatie DP3 Insulated Dpc.
