Effective Drying Heating Triangle

Effective Drying - Heating Triangle

Dealing with on-site damp. Safe, effective drying out – no project delays.

Wet, cold weather often means delays due to buildings not being warm or dry enough for works to progress – e.g. carpentry, decorating, floor coverings. The ambient air on site can reach a very high level of relative humidity, particularly during the autumn, winter and spring months. Before the building is water tight and the central heating/underfloor system is installed, a temporary drying-out programme is often required.

The three components of The Effective Drying Triangle (see left)are required: air movement, dehumidification and warmth. Careful control ensures that the building dries out gradually and evenly, and prevents costly damage, such as timber warping, plaster cracking and structural movement.
