Ventstrip provides a innovative timbercare solution with a damp proof course which allows ventilation at the very base of the building.
The main issue with the longevity of timber buildings has been has been the use of a conventional damp proof course, which whilst preventing rising damp, also causes the base timber to remain damp, due to lack of ventilation. Ventstrip reduces this damp problem, which can otherwise lead to the deterioration of the structure.
It is constructed from HDPE with truncated conical protrusions. It is resistant to UV, acid/alkali and does not support bacterial or fungal growth. The crush strength is 200 Kn/msq.
Ventstrip is simple and easy to install at time of construction and will interlock onto it’s self which means there is little waste.
