Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream - Energy Saving Claims Verified by the Energy Saving Trust
Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream has recently been verified as an energy saving measure by the Energy Saving Trust. The not-for-profit organisation confirms that Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream is suitable for use as an external wall insulation method on damp walls.
Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream is different from standard insulating materials in that it maximises the natural insulating properties of the building materials by keeping them dry. There is no colour or texture change to the substrate either, making for a less obtrusive insulation layer than renders or external wall insulation.
Cost effective insulation method for properties
The simple one-coat application and relatively small material cost of Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream means that, on average, it has a quicker ‘payback time’ for retrofits than other insulation materials such as internal wall insulation, exterior wall insulation, cavity wall insulation and double glazing.
The carbon emissions for a Stormdry application are also lower than many competing products because Stormdry is produced in the UK, reducing emissions for delivery to site.
Energy Saving Trust
For the past 15 years, the Energy Saving Trust has been carrying out specific assessment and verification of products and the claims manufacturers make about them. Products that meet their standards in regards to the accuracy of performance claims made by the manufacturer get the ‘Verified by Energy Saving Trust’ seal.
Extensive review and verification process
Throughout the year, Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream has been undergoing rigorous assessment by the Energy Saving Trust. Through the analysis of laboratory test reports, accreditations from independent agencies and figures obtained from field trials, the trust has verified that an application of Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream:
- Reduces heat loss through masonry
- Inhibits the absorption of water into sand stone, concrete, mortar and brick
Quality control to be trusted
The trust has also verified that Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream is produced in accordance with a suitable quality management system, ensuring that each unit of Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream is able to produce consistent results. No other products have been verified by the Energy Saving Trust in the category of ‘Wall Waterproofers’.
With the seal of verification by the Energy Saving Trust and the BBA certificate attached to it, you can be sure that an application of Stormdry Masonry Protection Cream will deal with rain penetration and stop heat loss through masonry walls on your property!
