Hydrosafe: Maximum protection for building components

Anyone who wants to plan, build or live in a building that is free from damage should choose a vapour retarder with an effective hydrosafe value. Hydrosafe? Yes, it sounds complicated but we’ll explain what it means in simple terms in these new proclima.tv videos:

  • Hydrosafe: Maximum protection
  • Some Interesting facts about hydrosafe:

    • Humidity-variable vapour retarders are particularly reliable.
    • Hydrosafe: Maximum protection thanks to a large spread in diffusion resistance value
    • Construction sites during winter months: A vapour retarder must
      1. be sufficiently impermeable = Protection against dampness
      2. but also be extremely permeable later = Maximum drying out
    • Hydrosafe value: sd of a vapour retarder for optimal protection for building components during construction period.
    • Hydrosafe => Maximum protection: against dampness + allows for good drying out
    • Better reliability thanks to vapour retarders with a suitable hydrosafe value.
