From residential to commercial builds, condensation management has long been an issue. The durability of commercial structures can be compromised due to excessive moisture and, in the residential sector, the inability to effectively manage condensation can often result in the fostering of mould.
Although traditional underlays are required to be vapour permeable, in reality, they can act as a significant vapour barrier and contribute to ineffective moisture management. With a strong focus on product innovation, Colorsteel offers a new design led solution that delivers superior condensation absorption and allows for enhanced ventilation — Colorsteel Dridex.
Consisting of an absorbent layer of fleece adhered to the reverse side of the Colorsteel sheet, Dridex negates the need for traditional underlay. As moisture enters the roof cavity, the unique fleece will absorb any accumulating condensation. As conditions improve and temperatures rise, the condensation evaporates escaping out the roof cavity into the exterior environment.
The superior condensation management of Colorsteel Dridex has seen it recognised as a Sensitive Choice product, reassuring homeowners that they have the right product for a drier, healthier home.
In addition to the innovative absorption properties, Dridex also offers great installation benefits. Negating the need for roofing underlay means installation teams can work in a greater range of weather conditions, whilst delivering a clean and aesthetically pleasing finish for any unlined projects.
Colorsteel Dridex is available across the entire Colorsteel colour range and can be supplied on all corrugate and trapezoidal profiles, along with select tray profiles.
