High-Performance Buildings: DELTA®-PROTEC

When turning your basement from a storage space into a livable area, it’s important to have added moisture protection. If you skip adding a subfloor system like DELTA®-PROTEC to your basement before installing your flooring, you run the risk of moisture getting in, causing foul odors, dampness, and moisture damage. Made of a special High-Density Polyethylene, DELTA®-PROTEC doesn’t have any chemical odors like some other products on the market.

Dörken’s Technical Service Manager Krzysztof Apriasz explains some of the product features of DELTA®-PROTEC, and demonstrates how easy it is to install, and discusses which flooring accessories to use. This dimpled membrane works to create an air gap, allowing the water vapor pressure to equalize above and below the concrete, leaving you with dry floors that are comfortable, too.
