Insulated DPC (Damp proof Course) is designed to minimise the chance of cold bridges (sometimes referred to as thermal bridges).
Cold bridges occur whenever there is gap in the insulation. They are most likely to occur:
- At the join between a wall and either the floor or the roof.
- Around the frames of windows and doors (often referred to as Window Reveals)
- Around holes that have been created for either cables, wires or pipes to pass through
- Around studwork in timber frame walls, that has disturbed the existing insulation.
Insulated DPC is supplied in eight metre rolls, and is suitable for both 100mm and 140mm bricks and blocks.
