High-Performance Buildings: DELTA®-DRAIN

Protecting foundations properly from moisture requires the right products and the right installation. By not installing correctly, you run the risk of dirt and debris getting trapped inside, leading to a faulty and less effective drainage system. This can ruin any construction project, resulting in wasted time, money, and effort.

In this detailed video, Krzysztof outlines how to apply and install DELTA®-DRAIN and what components and fasteners can be used to get the job done right. Throughout this step-by-step demonstration, he explains the differences between DELTA®-DRAIN and DELTA®-MS, how to properly adhere the drainboard to the foundation, the science behind the system, and how to ultimately achieve the ideal drainage, insulation, and waterproofing setting.

Through DELTA®-DRAIN’s dimpled membrane and geotextile design, this product allows for a high water-flow capacity and ensures effective drainage, leaving foundations and basements dry and free from moisture.
