IKO hydro Barrier, your underground water barrier
Buildings must survive all kinds of weather conditions and are literally, permanently in the ground with their foundations. That makes protecting constructions from infiltrations at the foot of cavity walls an absolute necessity.
Within the range of high-quality bituminous waterproofing membranes, IKO has a solution specifically geared around this issue. The IKO hydro Barrier membranes are the perfect protection against groundwater for foundations.
There are also the IKO hydro Barrier strips in a range of widths for resisting capillary moisture in the walls. The IKO hydro Barrier range is the sustainable solution for waterproofing underground structures and cavity walls.
