DELTAŽ-FOOTING BARRIER resists the capillary rise of water from the footings of the building into the foundation walls, and thus helps to protect the basement from mold growth, deterioration of moisture sensitive materials and unhealthy living conditions.
DELTAŽ-FOOTING BARRIER acts as a physical barrier, resisting the capillary wicking of water and upward migration of moisture from the footings into the foundation wall that is also known as rising damp. The material is designed to adhere well to the concrete footing. It is very pliable, allowing the forming of a keyway as per common practice.
DELTAŽ-FOOTING BARRIER is an important part of the DELTAŽ Premium Moisture Protection System, and can be easily installed by just one person.
DELTAŽ-FOOTING BARRIER is a 3-ply sheet membrane containing a polyester needle punched fabric, a polyethylene barrier, and an anti-slip surface layer. The specially designed, hydrophilic needle-punch PET fabric forms a strong mechanical bond with the concrete. It resists tearing during placement of gravel. The polyethylene middle layer creates a positive moisture barrier to prevent the wicking of water from the footings through to the foundation walls.
With a special non-slip surface coating, DELTAŽ-FOOTING BARRIER helps keep the jobsite a safe place to work.
DELTAŽ-FOOTING BARRIER is very easy to install. Just lay it into the freshly poured concrete footings, smooth into place with a trowel, and form the keyway with the membrane in place. DELTAŽ-FOOTING BARRIER has a centre line to mark the location of the keyway preprinted on it to make the alignment on the footing simple.
Rebar may be inserted into the wet concrete through an X-cut in the DELTAŽ-FOOTING BARRIER. Forms for the foundation walls are placed and the concrete is poured normally.
