DELTA-Footing Barrier


The DELTA-Footing Barrier is a three-ply impermeable membrane placed on top of a freshly poured footing before the foundation is poured to prevent water from wicking up through the concrete. The barrier creates a capillary break between the footer and foundation and keeps ground water from entering and accumulating in the basement walls. The barrier is flexible and consists of an anti-slip surface, an impermeable polyethylene barrier and a polyester needle-punched fabric for maximum adhesion to freshly poured concrete.
